Thanks to a recommendation by a well-fed Francophile Japanese friend we recently checked out Comme Chez Michel and were not disappointed.
No mucking around just really solid French bistro eats in a charming setting in the centre of Kyoto. With snow fluttering outside it was not a huge leap to imagine we were in a cosy corner of Paris.
And at 2800 yen for the lunch course we chose which included an amuse bouche, appetiser, soup, main, dessert and tea or coffee… Hello no-brainer!
Witlof/ Endive and roquefort salad with walnuts
Rustic terrine de campagne with mustard and cornichons
Rich duck with Madeira jus on mash
Pan fried fish with shellfish sauce and basil
Paris Brest with praline cream
Creme brulee with framboise sorbet (each element superb!)
