One night in Giro Giro Kyoto

On my bike through Kyoto I passed this place called Giro Giro many times. I saw these young guys in White uniforms and ties looking rather curiously and gastronomically. I was very shy to go but really wanted to go and find out what they were doing.

One night late a friend came to join me on the new venture of opening a new restaurant in Barcelona and he was very hungry however it was so late past 12.

We passed this restaurant and they were all still serving customers and we went around to the entrance to be warmly welcomed into the world of Giro Giro.

The first night we had beautiful cloudy sake  and a little plate of a sakura seasonal Hassun.

Giro Giro is casual but full of people that love to enjoy and what is so special about Giro Giro is that the chefs enjoy with you every minute you are with them.

We loved this place so much that we reserved a table for the next day to taste the full experience and to try more beautiful sakes cloudy Ume shu and Yuzu Beers.

Thank you to all the team Giro Giro we love what you do and how you do!!!!

Rocking modern keiseki Giro Giro way and all the way 🙂

What turned out to be a shy hesitation turned into a big sharing of passion for the cuisine and human contact in the free life. Giro Giro guys are so cool and sweet and if you go to kyoto or Paris be sure to go and visit them!

Goemon is the chef in charge below in the picture, he is young passionate and so talented surrounded by other very cool and talented chefs that have a human fun and happy hart to life.

Thank you for sharing together with us we will never forget this special night in Kyoto under the Sakura trees.
