Cooking with Amy is a great food escape, you come out refreshed, full of culinary joy and a happier person for the visit.Â I felt the same as I was looking at her recent post on Japanese cuisine.Â Amy revisited the koryori style restaurant Kappa this week, here she is now:
“When I went to Japan I thought I knew what Japanese food was. Boy, was I ever wrong! Going to Kappa is much the same experience. In addition to the kimono-clad hostess, the menu written in Japanese and the virtually all Japanese clientele, the food is koryori style, a traditional small plate cuisine from Kyoto not found anywhere else in town. Sure most of the dishes are familiar, but if you order the prix fixe meal several of the items are quite out of the ordinary.
Lee has been wanting to go back to Kappa ever since we went two years ago for his birthday. Since the prix fixe meal is rather special that was his choice again for this year’s birthday. As I mentioned the last time around, there is no sign in English for the restaurant and the wooden door slides open so you really don’t know where you are going. Lost in Translation anyone?”
This gem located next to Denny’s in San Francisco is worth your time and your well-deserving palate.Â Amy goes on to describe each dish they tasted, complete with wonderful, clear photos.Â
Look out for the upcoming ‘Tori no Mizutaki’ Japanese Chicken Stew Recipe’ post.
