This specialty restaurant of yuba and fu was established in 1689. Both dishes are Kyoto's specialty cuisine; yuba is a dish made out of the top layer that forms on warmed soy milk and fu is made out of kneaded wheat gluten. The dishes are made with carefully selected ingredients and water, upholding the traditional taste since the store first opened. The only item on the lunch menu is "Mushi Yashinai Ryori," a course consisting only of fu and yuba. A variety of dishes are created by adding several arrangements to the fresh-tasting fu and yuba.

Long Standing Fu and Yuba Restaurant Upholding Tradition
Hanbe-Fu has a history of around 320 years solely making fu and yuba. Fu and yuba are traditional Japanese dishes, whose origin was brought over from China and then further developed in the temples of Kyoto. Since its opening this restaurant has been paying close attention to its ingredients, water and techniques. The texture of the chewy nama-fu (raw fu) and its taste are surprisingly profound.
Mushi Yashinai Ryori, Lunch Full of Yuba and Fu
The only item on the lunch menu, Mushi Yashinai Ryori (3,240 yen), is a course filled with yuba and fu dishes. You can enjoy different dishes with fresh yuba and fu as their main. There are various ways of preparation and tastes such as dengaku - grilled with miso, or smooth melting yuba, and the dishes all have different appearances, so it's pretty satisfying.
Feel the Ambience and History of Kyoto
The restaurant is located in a district of great ambience with close access to Kyoto Station, inside a traditional Kyoto-style residence "machiya." The inside has a modest décor with only simple and elegant furnishings. You can spend a wonderful time looking at the patio garden.
