Kyoto: Must-Eat Riverside Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki 京都必吃鴨川和牛壽喜燒

Eventually, I decided on sukiyaki at Moritaya’s Kiyamachi branch — Kansai region style of sukiyaki with kuroge wagyu beef, a tatami-floored private dining room, and a view of the Kamogawa River. It was a fantastic lunch that everyone fully enjoyed. The surrounding area is fun to walk around. I definitely recommend this place for a Kyoto trip.

跟爸媽在日本關西的這五天,想安排一餐奢侈一下,要美食又要日式風格 (又吃不起米其林星星京料理),最後選了森田屋木屋町店的壽喜燒 — 關西風格壽喜燒、和式榻塌米包廂、窗外正對鴨川,全家都非常滿意,這一帶又很好逛,很容易排進行程。
