When all the travel guides and restaurant reviews agree where the “Best of Kyoto” dumplings are, you gotta go, right?
Anzukko is a modest little place, not much seating, no English menu.
They are famous for this:
A dozen pork dumplings seared to a crisp in a circular, cast iron bowl.
But first we tried the vegetable.
Then we tried the shrimp. Both were excellent.
And then the sisters offered us a little tofu palate cleanser before the cast iron special.
Yum. That was good. We were ready. Would they be as good as the travel guides said?
12 pork dumplings for Y980, about $12.50.
