Okutan, Kyoto

86-30 Fukuchi-cho, Nanzen-ji
Japan 606-8435
Tel: 81 75 771 8709's insider take:

If the essence of Zen Buddhist Kyoto could be distilled into a pot, it would be a pot of simmering yudofu at this centuries-old tofu restaurant just across from the towering gate to Nanzen-ji Temple. Even if you find tofu bland and uninspiring, give this a chance: You'll likely be won over by Okutan's skewers of grilled tofu dengaku, served with a finger-licking sweet miso sauce.

Open Mondays through Wednesdays and Fridays through Sundays 10:30 am to 5 pm.
