Tousuiro – Kyoto is famous for its tofu. You can have a traditional kaseiki 10-course tofu meal at Tosuiro, but you have to call in advance and book the vegetarian meal.

Shigetsu – Buddhist meal (shojin ryori) at the Tenryuji temple in Arashiyama.

Beer Komachi – An absolutely adorable hole in the wall, frequented by locals and expats. It’s hidden away in a lantern-lit shopping alley. We had a crispy and flavorful mini-pizza. They do have a fried tofu pizza on the menu but we were all tofu-ed out so we just asked them to make a veggie pizza. Great craft beer selection and the one white wine was excellent.
