Organic restaurant that doesn’t use meat, fish, egg, dairy products, white rice, white salt, white sugar…etc. Left pic is the front of the store selling organic goods.
Today’s lunch(1100yen): Tofu hamburger, wakame and cucumber with vinegar, simmered shredded radish, genmai(brown rice), and miso soup. The tofu burger is really nice. The brown rice is easy to eat. Though the portion is so small that I got hungry really quickly. I went back again for lunch a few times afterwards when I wasn’t feeling too hungry, and the small portion healthy veggy lunch was just right. Right pic is vegetable curry, 1000yen.
You can get to the restaurant through the organic store, or through an entrance at the back. The restaurant is only opened for lunch, except on Fri when it is also opened for dinner. I tried the dinner set(1300yen): chilled udon, vegetable and atsuage, sesame tofu, fried veggy with miso, genmai onigiri.
Fried tofu sandwich(potato and carrot in the middle), Jew’s marrow, sweet potato and red kidney beans nimono(stewed dishes).
Genmai onigiri set.
I guess the restaurant is trying to be environmental friendly – the air-conditioning is minimal even on a very very hot summer day, and simply no air-con at night with only the doors opened. There is no paper napkins on the tables…my nose was running while I was eating the curry and I had nothing to wipe my nose…bring your own tissue to this restaurant!
An old visit. Today’s lunch is fried summer vegetables, sashimi konjak and okra with vinegar and miso, simmered string seaweed, brown rice and miso soup. Love the vegetables and the brown rice. Though the konjak had some really bad fish smell…^^;; After I took picture of the interior, customers kept coming in and filled up the place, all of them either elderly or girls.
