On my business trip, I had an overnight in Kyoto, and my coworker and I stopped to get lunch at Kyoto Station before going to our hotel. While I’m partial to the “solid tofu”(katatôfu [堅豆腐]) of the Kaga region, I also love Kyoto’s yuba (ゆば, 湯葉), the “tofu skin” and didn’t want to leave the city without eating some. We stopped at Kyotofu Fujino (京豆富「不二乃)」, the Kyoto JR Station’s location of Kyotofu Fujino (note the different kanji: 京とうふ藤野) and ordered a set lunch.
And then proceeded to weep into our tofu.
Here’s the autumn seasonal set, which was available in the latter half of October (plus a drink!).
This set cost 2700 yen, plus 500 yen for the juice, and it was worth every last yen. Tofu is an art.
Seasonal menu (with allergy info) here (Japanese). Vegetarian and halal options available.
This location is in the JR Kyoto Station Isetan. Bilingual menu (Japanese/English). Open 11:00-23:00, no holidays.
