Isoya
This casual, affordable izakaya has flipped the script on vegetables, removing them from supporting “side dish” roles aside meats and elevating them to the stars of the table. Seasonal Kyoto vegetables take precedent, and change daily (they’re listed at the colorful chalk board above the bar). Dishes include lotus root sprinkled with sea urchin, matsusake mushrooms sautéed in sake, and fried sweet potato with purple ice cream. Vegetables even occupy the beverage list where veggie-shochu cocktails are the house specialty. The glass-encased space in the city center feels especially convivial and there are even chairs spilling out onto an outdoor terrace, a rarity in Kyoto.
