After a long day strolling around Gion district, my sister and I settled down at the Doishibadukehompo (土井志ば漬本舗京都駅ポルタ店) restaurant for some sukiyaki. This restaurant has three floors. The first floor is a pickle store, selling all sorts of Japanese pickles. The second and third floor are for dining.
Sukiyaki is a popular Japanese hot pot dish. It usually consists of thin slices of beef, tofu, mushrooms, scallion, vegetables, and jelly noodles. Prior to writing about sukiyaki, I didn’t know that one was supposed to beat the egg and dip the cooked food into the raw egg. My sister, who studied the Japanese language and some of its culture, told me to crack the egg into the pot. So I took her word and did exactly that. Regardless, it was a good meal. The sukiyaki cost 1450yen per set.
Doshibadukehompo is located along Shijo Dori right next to Noen Coffee shop. The map below shows the location of Noen Coffee shop.
