Tofu Chaya Hayashi
Satisfy your fill with the freshly made tofu and the original soy milk menu
Tofu Teahouse Hayashi is Soy Good (Unlike This Joke!)
April 13, 2017

Kyoto is famous in Kansai for its tofu, but if this place is anything to go by, the tofu in Nara can give Kyoto a run for its money. The modern, charming teahouse is run by the 3rd generation of the local tofu makers, and the cafe itself has been open for about 5 years. I love that the tofu is freshly made everyday - nothing like the boxed tofu in American supermarkets. They serve up a wide range of tofu-based dishes - for instance, tofu hamburg steak, tofu hotpot, tofu ramen, and a tofu parfait which is way tastier than it sounds.

I live in Kyoto and think incessantly about food, both making and eating it. You can find my occasional musings about food at furochan.wordpress.com. Or more often showing you the places I've been to and what I've eaten on Instagram @furochan_eats. Y

Mr. Hayashi inherited this tofu shop from his grandfather. His signature tofus, which local customers love, are made from clear water from Mt. Yoshino and soy milk produced in Japan. They have rich flavor. Tofu Chaya Hayashi has opened to promote tofu’s charms.
You can enjoy several kinds of special tofu dishes such as tofu set meals, tofu ramen, and soy milk soft-serve ice cream there.
