Traditional French cuisine enjoyed with chopsticks! This restaurant, manned by chef-patron Inoue Teruo at Pontocho Misoguigawa, serves French cuisine with Japanese twists. It’s located at an old teahouse in central Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. One of its notable meals is the Kaiseki-form French cuisine which has been served here since the early 1980s. Its eight-course dinner menu costs no less than $300 per person. t It has to be ordered and paid for one day ahead. Some of the current menu items include Grilled scallops, rendez-vous sauce with seasonal vegetables, Breton lobster and black truffles in Champagne sauce with asparagus, sole fish, classic quenelle, mushroom, and herbal bouquet…you can imagine the rest of the exquisite menu. Inoue maintains his connections to France, such as making annual trips there to purchase champagne and wine and meeting with Parisian chocolatiers to discuss his own chocolate brand “Maison d’it.”
