Konna Monja (こんなもんじゃ)

This place is specialized in tofu, and they have so many different walk-and-eat menu! Their soy milk donut is the most popular one. Available from 10 pieces for 300 yen, can you believe it? You should also try their soy milk soft serve and yuba (soy sheet/tofu skin) sashimi!

For dog lovers/owners: they sell cookies for dogs so make sure to buy that as a souvenir for your pupper!
Soybean cookies for your doggie! Humans can also eat it too, it's safe and very healthy!

Kai (櫂)

Here you can enjoy a very interesting octopus- it shaped really beautiful, but don't you want to know what's inside its head? An Egg! This unique octopus is called "Tako-tamago", literally meaning an octopus egg.

Nishiki Mochitsukiya (錦 もちつき屋)

If you really love mochi, this place could be your second home. They basically serve lots of freshly made mochi - if you are walking and eating, try their "warabi-mochi", if you want to sit down and chill for a little, try their Ozouni (a little similar to miso soup, but with white miso based soup and their mochi!), their ice cream, grilled mochi (sweet or spicy), shaved ice, and more!

Hana Yori Kiyoe (花よりキヨエ)

This place is famous for their olive oil! Their croquette is fried using olive oil (bless them for making us feel less guilty), and they also have olive oil soft serve too. Very casual style cafe. Try their Yuba-cream croquette to taste Kyoto.

Miki Keiran (三木 鶏卵)

Miki Keiran is famous for their Dashimaki-tamago (egg), a very popular dish in Japan, and here you can have a take out!
In Japan, red bean paste bread and custard cream bread is very popular. And here they substituted these into yolk! They sell yolk cream bread and yolk paste bread, so make sure to try them too.

Fuka (麸喜 錦市場店)

Have you ever heard of Namafu before? Made from flour and water, it is a very popular dish in Japan, and namafu has a chewy texture that is so addictive. Here you can have Kyoto's traditional sweets called "fu manju", red bean paste covered with namafu.
Fu-manju!

Chuo Beikoku (京都錦 中央米穀 錦店)

If you want to eat rice, then this is where you go. They have a lot of Onigiri (rice ball) options to choose from! They are a rice store - you can already imagine their Onigiri tasting so good right? Enjoy the taste of Japan!
