Kyoto is the ultimate Japanese izakaya "Blanka" in Sanjojoru, Miyuki-cho. It can be said that it is a restaurant that embodies the most fashionable and creative Japanese izakaya in Kyoto today. First of all, the word "creative Japanese izakaya" already has a bad smell, but this shop is okay! Let me introduce the reason.
Reason 1. Fashionable renovation of Machiya. Tourists can also eat at the very satisfying Kyomachiya. Use it fashionably without demolishing old-fashioned buildings. Sustainable things are the best lol. Isn't it like now? And this place is a house in spite of the fashionable area of Daikanyama in Tokyo. In other words, you can see how prosperous you are by paying the rent only for the sales of this shop. It is conveniently located just a 3-minute walk from Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station. By the way, "Miyuki-dori" in Ginza, Tokyo is read as "Miyuki-dori". In Kyoto, "Gokomachi-dori" is read aloud as "Gokomachi-dori".
The interior is also fashionable. The Japanese taste and the Western taste are a perfect match and are natural. Oh yeah, that's the second reason. The exterior of the space is crunchy Japanese, but when you enter the store, you will feel like a cafe. The clerk also wears a T-shirt. It's rough. It's casual. It's no wonder that the customers in the store are mostly women.
Reason # 3. This is the most important thing, the food is based on Japanese food, but it is mixed with plus alpha. It's almost this. And what makes "Bianca" excellent is that it mixes with Asian tastes. There are many dishes that are very Kyoto-like, such as Kizushi (rare mackerel), and many dishes that can no longer be named. For example, you can add seaweed to a mixture of Japanese ginger, tuna and avocado. A lot of coriander is added to the white sauce, and even though it is a surprising dish, each one goes well. This is delicious. It's popular and natural. It feels like a dish that combines Japan, China, South Korea, and Southeast Asia in general. It's a Eurasian continental dish, but it's not such a rough feeling, it's delicate. Ah, but potato salad also contains cheese, so I don't know what it is anymore lol. However, it is delicious. It is a famous store.
