This place is great. It’s just across the road from Kyoto University on Mikage Dori, so I guess the fact it caters for a lot of penniless students may explain the great value. For ￥900 yen you get a main course AND rice AND miso soup AND salad. In other words: “Lots of STUFF!”. And it all tastes wonderful too. One draw back: it’s mostly meat so not good for true vegetarians, but for fish eaters like me the turbot or the shrimp dish are fantastic. Here are some pictures:

And here’s the shrimp and veggies:
For an extra ￥300 you can get a tea or coffee too.
