- Tan is a restaurant produced by the upscale establishment Wakuden. It opened in 2016 on a side street overlooking the flowing Shirakawa River. The name of the restaurant means “small sincerity” and expresses the desire to introduce diners to the wonderful foods from the Tango region.
- The restaurant serves healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner washoku meals that use freshly picked vegetables and other high-quality foods from the Tango region. “Breakfast includes several vegetable-based dishes, rice and miso soup. The lunch menu has single plate meals such as gyudon using Tamba beef and noodles, as well as three dish course meals,” says head chef Yosuke Yamate, who trained at Kodaiji Wakuden and Muromachi Wakuden.
- Many of the a la carte dishes served in the evening pair well with alcohol. If you make a reservation for the full-course meal, it is possible to use the second-floor seating overlooking the scenic Shirakawa River and enjoy seasonal Kyoto sights such as cherry blossoms and lightning bugs.
