We have 2 nights in Takayama, during the Autumn festival.
On the first night, we'll be eating dinner at our ryokan. Breakfast will be taken there too.
I'd appreciate any feedback or thoughts on one lunch and one dinner suggestion, that will fit in nicely with our sightseeing in Takayama.
I've read on Chowhound about:-
-- Yamatake-Shōten for Hida Beef - would welcome thoughts on quality, menu options, and whether this would be nice option for dinner on our 2nd night, assuming I can even get a reservation during festival at this short notice
-- Center 4 Hamburgers - possible lunch option, reviews seem mixed, some love some hate. Husband does enjoy really good burgers...
Also found on Wiki:-
-- Yakisoba - specialises in yakisoba fried noodles
On Takayama Shops website:
-- Mikado - serves local meals, inexpensive, don't know anything on quality or menu
-- Suzuya - serves local meals, inexpensive, don't know anything on quality or menu
-- List of izakayas - http://takayamashops.com/movabletype/...
And I think I read that soba is a local speciality too?
That's it, that's all I have!
Would like focus to be on Hida beef and other local specialities, I think I recall reading something about a local variation on pickles... If there's somewhere you recommend that comes in at a lot less than Yamatake-Shoten, that'd be great, as I'd rather spend less, but will spend more if that's the place everyone recommends.
