It's pretty hard to get a bad meal in Japan. There are lots of local delicacies in Kyoto including (if I recall correctly) yuba and white miso. There are tons of traditional places, but Kyoto tends to be pricier and have smaller portions than places like Osaka. A true experience (if you're good with vegetarian) is Shojin Ryori or a Temple set meal. A description and a listing of a few places in Kyoto can be found here: https://medium.com/@chietakemoto11/traditional-japanese-buddhist-cuisine-shojin-ryori-starter-guide-2cc48d728913

Thanks for the info P. We are spending a few days in Osaka first and then travelling to Kyoto. Local Ramen is something I am dying to try as each region has different styles i have been advised. We are meeting a local girl in Tokyo and hopefully she can she us where the locals go.

The traditional meal in Kyoto is Obanzai. It is a typical ordinary "homemade" food. There are many restaurants you can enjoy Japanese - mum's - cooked - flavoured meals in Kyoto. Usually, they are not so pricy, especially for lunch.

Just google when you are there. We went to restaurants based on ratings and was never disappointed.
