Kyoto

Kyoto was wonderful.  We were staying for 5 days so we rented an apartment and it felt great to have room to spread out.
We saw loads of shrines both Buddhist and Shinto--so different and so amazing.  I think we all agreed that we preferred the Shinto.  I'll talk more about that in a later post.
Now I want to talk about food.  I'm such a fussy eater that finding a place for me to eat wasn't always easy, but our daughter, armed with Google, did a great job.  I'd told her how much we enjoyed Benihanas in Atlanta and she did her best to find something similar.  What she found was a place where you cook your own food on a hibachi grill  and she was the chef.
We ordered chicken, corn, shrimp and scallops.  All of it was great, to say nothing of the fresh avocados we started with.  Dinner was so good that we went back 2 nights later and did it again.

  5. Well, the food looks interesting, but I don't like shrimp, scallions, etc. really not much seafood at all.

  13. I developed real problems in Japan because I became allergic to soy, or it might have been a certain type of soy. I ended up living on plain rice and plain raw vegetables!

  16. I'm the more adventurous eater in the family; my husband would have some issues finding places where he'd enjoy the food. Glad your daughter knows her way around.
