Goh-no Tora serves obanzai style Kyoto cuisine while also specializing in inventive menu items such as charcoal grilled duck from Kyoto’s Tamba region, or Kishuumedori- an original brand of chicken from Wakayama raised on ume plum vinegar. The name of the restaurant (‘five yellow tigers’) comes from the chef’ s astrological data:
the combination of the year of the Tiger, the number five, the colour yellow and the Earth Star according to the Nine Star Ki form of astrology. In line with the name of the restaurant, Ki-Yan, who usually doesn’t paint his subjects
with realistic colours, decided to use yellow for the tiger and expressed the number ‘5’ by using five colours:
yellow, red, black, orange and gold.
