Kagizen Yoshifusa, the Place to be for Kuzukiri
This dessert might require just two ingredients, but be warned kuzukiri implies a little know-how. A dish made from a base of kudzu plant and purified water, it is a speciality of the Kagizen tearooms in Kyoto in the historic quarter of Gion.
Served in a large green bowl, accompanied by a black sugar syrup, kudzu noodles are cooled in ice before being delicately served to diners. This dessert, made to order, quickly loses its flavour so must be consumed quickly.
