Minoko, Kyoto - Kaiseki

Minoko is a beautiful villa near Gion, the old part of Kyoto. Just stepping into it makes you feel like you're savouring a slice of Japanese culture and history, especially when you are served with green matcha tea and lovely sweet cakes in a tatami room. We had the mini-kaiseki (10,000 yen or SGD 150 per person) comprising 9 absolutely delicious courses, in our own private tatami room (thankfully, with leg-wells) overlooking a small garden. It was all wonderfully fresh, lovingly prepared, and stunningly presented. I highly recommend Minoko if you're looking for a special experience to remember. But be sure to reserve in advance as they don't receive walk-in customers.
