Kyo-Tsukemono no Nishiri
Time Out says
While tsukemono is wildly popular across Japan as a side dish staple, this café and store elevates the Kyoto pickle from its garnish status and makes it the star of the show. Everything on the menu is pickled, including the dessert: pickled apples and ice cream. Grab a counter seat and order a meal set, a delicately arranged pairing of flavourful pickled veggies with a basin of rice, two types of tea and a white, creamy miso soup.
A long counter displays dozens of refrigerated pickles for sale, nearly all of which can be sampled. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – the friendly staff love to talk about their Zen-inspired pickle love.
