Kisshokaryo, a shop that's popular for its homemade kinako (soybean flour) sweets, opened its second shop in Shijo, Kyoto. You can enjoy breakfast and lunch menus as well as sweets that were created using savory roasted soybean flour here.
Kogashi-kinako Parfait (roasted soybean parfait, right, ¥1,188) and Kyoka-matcha Parfait (green tea parfait, left, ¥1,404)
The cafe's menu features a popular parfait, which is made up of layers of soybean flour and soy milk blancmange, and a matcha parfait, which is sold in limited quantities at the Kyoto Shijo Shop only. These parfaits are served at the cafe as early as breakfast time.
Nama Salmon To Zeppin Ikura Set (raw salmon and fine salmon roe set, ¥1,296) Take note that lunch menus are served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The roasted soybean flour used by the cafe is also sold at the shop so you can bring it home (from ¥486/100 grams). Since the flour's taste varies depending on the type of soybeans used and its production area, it would be interesting to buy the different types of flour and compare their flavors.
The home-roasted soybean flour is roasted thoroughly and combined with large soybeans to produce that unique and impressive taste and aroma. Since each table has a pot containing this soybean flour, you're free to add as much of it as you want to the dish you ordered!
The shop has a modern atmosphere with warm lighting and furniture. It's the perfect place for a casual chat with friends.
Each day, a long line of customers can be found in front of the famous shop. It's best to go there earlier to make sure you get a seat.
