Colourful and cheerful, with average-looking kimono-clad models scattered throughout the restaurant, Issen Yoshoku (壹銭洋食) is a very fun dining place!
Shijo Dori, Nawate-agaru, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto
Though the menu is big, only one item is served here!
Rumoured to be the original ‘Western food’ in Japan, Issen Yoshoku is an okonomiyaki-ish pancake filled with egg, beef, scallion, shrimp and topped with a sweet sauce.
Watch the chef in action at the grill!
Freshly made Issen Yoshoku~
This looks fake.
Wait, I think it is fake.
Here’s the real deal. I won’t say I love it, but the boys liked it so much that one order (this was just a pre-dinner snack, haha) quickly turned into two!
Me, I still prefer the old-fashioned okonomiyaki : )
