Zezekan Pocchiri Review
Zezekan Pocchiri. Feast on Beijing-style cuisine in this impressive Taisho-era warehouse with antique glass windows and an inner courtyard garden. The fascinating mural of ornate pocchiri clasps used by geishalike maiko-san to secure their belts gives the place its name. Evening meals include a parade of small appetizers and more-substantial dishes like spicy tofu stir-fries, chicken stews, and delicately flavored sea bream. For ¥11,000 you can order a meal inspired by Imperial Court cuisine, featuring savory Peking duck and seasonal delicacies like spiny lobster and crab stew. The detached bar stocks a good selection of Chinese aperitifs and European wines, and stays open until 11. Nishiki-koji, Muromachi-Nishi-iru, 283–2 Tenjinyama-cho, Nakagyō-ku, Kyōto, 604-8221. 075/257–5766. Reservations essential.
