Dashi-Maki and Drip Coffee at Knot Café in Kyoto

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!
