Although motsu nabe is best known as a Fukuoka speciality, the Kyoto version of this hot pot-and-offal dish is also well worth trying during the cold months. Opened just in time for autumn 2016, the Ginza outpost of Kyoto's own Karasuma Kuro sits inside the uninspiring Inz shopping complex's restaurant zone but stands out with nabe concoctions made with fresh offal from brand-name Omi beef, local Kyoto leek and homemade tofu. And to help you mop up the creamy, garlicky soup at the end, the dish comes with Kuro's own, very tasty champon noodles. During lunchtime, try one of the affordably priced, beef-heavy teishoku sets.
