They say the best way to understand a country’s culture is through their food. So explore the famed beauty of Kyoto at the Kyo Yasai Fair. Happening from now – 16 Mar, the event is organised by the Kyo-Branded Products Association of Kyoto Prefecture’s government to commemorate the culture and cuisine of Kyoto.
The term Kyo Yasai refers to the heirloom vegetables grown in the Kyoto Prefecture – Kyo means “capital” (referring to Kyoto during the Heian period), while Yasai translates to vegetables. A tradition taken very seriously by the Japanese, Kyo Yasai succinctly defines clean, healthy eating and an age-old culinary heritage.
To celebrate the launch of the Kyo Yasai Fair, five renowned restaurants in Singapore were chosen by Kyoto Prefecture to participate in the fair by creating new Kyoto-themed menus that feature some of seven best selections of Kyoto Vegetables, including Ebiimo (Japanese Taro) and Fushimi Rapeseed.
Head over to KOLABO, Teppan Bar Q, Pixy Restaurant & Bar, SUPPLY & DEMAND Esplanade, and Torikin to experience the exclusive menus, their exceptional taste, and the many health benefits of Kyo Yasai.

By introducing these highly valued vegetables of Kyoto to Singaporeans, the Kyo-Branded Products Association hopes to generate more interest and awareness of the ingredients we use in the food we put on our table.
