What I ate: Kyoto

May 13, 2015

My first meal in Kyoto was a bento lunch. After, getting off the train and walking to our hotel, I was tired and quite hungry. Thankfully, there was a restaurant literally beside our hotel. I didn't want to search far so we went there for lunch. The bento was perfect for me as I got to sample different dishes all together.

The second photo was the best tonkatsu (breaded deep fried pork cutlet) I ever had in Japan or ever! I don't know if I was just starving but in any case, it was perfect! The rice was great and the salad with sesame dressing was delicious! It was the best lunch! I still dream about it sometimes...

I also got to try street food bbq outside of Fushima Inari shrine.Quite a strategic location after walking and hiking up the shrine. You can smell the bbq wafting through the air. I couldn't resist but to try it.


  1. This post is GLORIOUS. Love Japanese food so much.

    A vegan friend of mine had a hard time in Japan, tho, cos she didn't have a lot of options daw.

    1. I can imagine and also it's hard to order because of the language barrier. Thank god for pictures and replicas, otherwise, I would not survive in Japan.

  2. Ah, everything looks super delicious! I'd love to get my hands on those dishes!

  3. Oh my gosh everything looks so amazing!

  5. Oh man. This all looks pretty amazing. Those pot stickers!!!!
