Ask a Giraffe Review
Ask a Giraffe. The eclectic decor and accessible menu make this longtime place an expat favorite. Sandwiches, salads, and pasta dishes are always fantastic. The yearly menu is full of great choices like mouthwatering tuna steak and the uniquely Japanese staple omuraisu (a fried-rice omelet). Coffees and cakes round out the selection. Casual with a friendly Western feel, it's in the Shinpu-kan shopping center inside George's. Karasuma-dori Anekoji-sagaru 586-2, Nakagyō-ku, Kyōto, 604-8162. 075/257–8028.
