Dashi-Maki and Drip Coffee at Knot Café in Kyoto
Kyoto has been treating me right.
If you know me at all, you probably know how much I love tamagoyaki. When I first visited Japan, my host mother recognized my love of the sweet egg omelette and made it nearly every morning for me that summer. What is just a simple rolled egg with a dash of sugar can make for one delicious treat.
In northern Kyoto, a retired textile warehouse is now a hot spot for coffee, chocolates, and of course, tamagoyaki. In this case, it is called dashimaki, and it is housed inside a sliced bun from a nearby Kyoto bakery.
The saltiness of the bun is perfect with the sweet egg, and is great when paired with the cafe’s other sandwich offering, a sweet red bean bun! Top that all off with coffee straight from Cafe Grumpy in Brooklyn, NY, and you’ve got one awesome meal.
Coffee ranges from 500~600yen and the sandwiches are 300yen each. If you’re still hungry they also serve great chocolates and brownies, all locally sourced!
