Gion Hamdaya


Restaurants & Cafés


When the summer humidity kicks in, the Japanese scoff eels for a stamina boost. Most places baste their eels, but this Gion restaurant uses skewers to drain more of the oil and leave a soft, light fish, served with salt or ponzu sauce. The chef’s rolled omelette is a highlight, creamier than elsewhere.
