Kikunoi Honten

Owner-chef Yoshihiro Murata’s ancestor was tea-server to the wife of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, the feudal lord who unified 16C Japan. Established two generations ago, the restaurant is named after the well from which the water was drawn. The ‘Kakure-ume’ appetiser has ume hidden under shirako, as a metaphor for spring, and expressing anticipation of the verdant season. The ‘Awabi-Isoyaki’ dish is a summer tradition, featuring awabi and uni.
