Awa (Nara-machi)粟 ならまち店

Restaurant

A restaurant and hideaway located in the Naramachi (Town of Nara) area, renowned for its charming old-fashioned townscape, a 15 minute walk from Kintetsu Nara Station. Situated inside a townhome over 140 years old, the restaurant is divided into multiple rooms, including one with a view of the inner garden, a traditional kura warehouse section, and a tatami room on the second floor. Awa serves dishes which gives diners the chance to enjoy the food culture of Nara, including home-grown Yamato vegetables, Yamato beef, and local Yamato sake. Its lunches consisting of numerous small dishes piled high on a basket are so beautiful they look like works of art. Visitors also love the fact that Awa’s dishes are not restricted to the traditional boundaries of Japanese cuisine, such as the restaurant’s rib roast steak served grilled on a porcelain plate. Advance reservation required.

フリーで伺いましたが結構混んでいました。肉料理は特に美味しくて、盛り付けも綺麗でした。予約した方が良い感じがします。
Reviewed:2018/11/07 野菜だけでそこまで満足させられるか!
なかなか予約が取れない店ですが、今回は早めにスケジュールを決め、予約させていただきました。
いろいろなコースがありますが、大和野菜のコースを選択、大正解でした。
大和伝統野菜を作っている農業法人が経営しているらしく、珍しい野菜の数々がそれぞれ違う料理法、味付けで登場。質はもちろん、心配していた量も男性の私ですら、満腹で苦しくなるほどで、堪能させていただきました。素材の説明をしてくれるアルバイトの女...

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
