6 seating counter sushi-kappo restaurant in Miyazu, Tango area, of northern Kyoto
by a Portuguese chef fascinated by Japanese cuisine.
＜ About nishiiru ＞
The name of the restaurant is “Nishiiru”, which literally means “entering the west”. We hope this place will be where the guests experience the culture journey through the cooking by the chef from the westernmost point, Portugal. From Lisbon to Tokyo, to Kawaguchiko(Yamanashi), Ito(Shizuoka), Kusatsu onsen(Gunma), Tokyo again and to Kyoto. Ricardo’s insatiable quest for Japanese cuisine with the great help of people through our path have led us where we are, with the aim of one day owning our own restaurant.
In February 2022, we visited the Tango area, northern Kyoto by the sea and immediately thought this would be it. We would like to share the amazing produce this location offers in this small Kura(old warehouse) renovated counter restaurant
