Tempura Matsu

Course of the finest tempura of the day chosen by the chef

Matsu’s regular customers include foodies in Kyoto who have a discerning sense for good food.  They used to serve tempura on the menu but the regular customers wanted to try something new and different and the chef started to serve “secret items,” as requested.  Today, diners can experience both classical and different tempura in his course style dishes with tempura as the main dish.  The finest seasonal ingredients arrive at the restaurant every day from around Japan and the chef considers how he can cook every ingredient in the best way taking into account appearance, aroma and texture.  Considering the quality of ingredients and the skill of the chef, their prices are incredibly reasonable (from 5,250 yen for lunch and from 10,500 yen for dinner).  This is absolutely one of the must-try restaurants in Kyoto.
