Yuba Cuisine Freshly Made by Expert Chefs
The yuba in Komameya is made with dedication, by carefully scooping up the thin layer that forms on warm soy milk made from Japanese soy. Here, you can savor freshly made yuba prepared carefully by expert chefs with their experience and techniques. This is also the only place in Kyoto that serves yuba made out of black soy beans and green soy beans.
Healthy and Affordable Kumiage Yuba-don
Kumiage Yuba-don (rice bowl with yuba toppings) (720 yen), topped with smooth soy milk-covered yuba and a raw egg, comes with osuimono (clear soup) and pickled vegetables and is very affordable. Wasabi can be added according to preference. It is only at a specialty store like this, that you can thoroughly enjoy smooth yuba.
The wood used for the tabletop is natural solid wood and gives a warm feel. All seats are in a horigotatsu (low table to sit on the floor with hollow legroom), so that you can dine comfortably as if sitting on a chair even in a Japanese ambiance. Relax and enjoy the gourmet of Kyoto.
