Here are 3 of the 8 new shops to get 1 Michelin star for 2022 in Kyoto!

Restaurant Restaurant Koke

Koke is located inside the Ido Kyoto building, a concept building promoting Kyoto cultural aesthetics. The cuisine is listed as "innovative", as the base is Spanish cooking with Japanese twists. Chef Yusaku Nakamura is originally from Okinawa, but has trained in Kyoto, Kobe and Spain. They offer a lunch course (13,000JPY) from 12:00-15:00 and a dinner course (19,800JPY) from 18:00-23:00.

Restaurant Koke is about a 4 minute walk from Karasuma Oike Station exit number 2 on the first floor of the Ido Kyoto building.

Restaurant Gion Manma

Gion Manma is a small 8 counter seats only restaurant that made it to BG in 2020 but promoted to its first 1 star this year! It is an omakase course restaurant, which means it is up to the chef to decide what to serve you that day. Most dishes are charcoal grilled at the counter by the chef right in front of you.  This restaurant uses many seasonal ingredients and as such each visit is a new experience. Course price range is around 11,000-17,000JPY during dinner (17:00-22:00).
