Lunch at "Tetsutei KUROGANE-TEI" on Sanjo-dori, a 3-minute walk from Karasuma Oike Station. Dozens of irons are erected on the entrance wall on the first floor, so this is a landmark.
When you go up to the second floor of the multi-tenant building, the lively store is filled with office workers and office ladies. It's a popular restaurant where shared seats are commonplace. The feeling of zero tourists is amazing. It's not like Kyoto. It's not a remodeling of a machiya, nor is it the Japanese food that is typical of Kyoto. However, on the contrary, this may be real Kyoto rice. It contains common Japanese food such as fried eggplant and sardines boiled in ginger.
The reason for the popularity of this restaurant is that it is a two-course main dish. If you make a daily set meal, you can choose two main side dishes, so It's easy because there is no "Hmm, I'm wondering which one to choose". In addition, some people may say, "I'm not sure which two products to use." It is a lineup of side dishes of daily set meals that you are interested in, but if you take a certain day as an example, Boiled Chikuzen, Mapo tofu, Boiled sardines with ginger, Fried shrimp, Fried eggplant, Japanese-style hamburger steak, stir-fried pork and cabbage with miso, Negitoro bowl, Grated chicken ponzu, natto omelet, etc. About 15 types. Covers all genres such as Japanese, Western, and Chinese. After all it may be lost. In addition, two small plates such as cold tofu and simmered dishes are included. This saves 850 yen.
The seasoning is strong overall. So, the office worker & OL are also young. It's a good lunch that isn't stylish but not dirty. Tetsutei 2nd floor, Shinshindo Building, 16-2 Umetadacho, Karasuma-dori, Sanjo-dori, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto 075-221-6079
