And it was TRULY AMAZING. Having been to Japan recently, I was lucky to be able to compare this experience with the ones I had in all the restaurants and ryokan inns in Japan.
Anyway, here is my review :)!
|The entrance: simple and clean|
The restaurant is located near King's Cross Station. It's not very big but it has a homey little interior.
I had booked the "healing menu" in advance, which consists of at least 10 different small courses that are all meant to help your body function better in some way. Unlike the traditional kaiseki that amazed me so much in Japan (where you get about 12 different dishes served at the same time!), all the courses came separately. The staff were really friendly and explained what the food was as they brought it to us.
Here is a sample of what we had (I was too busy sampling everything to take too many pictures!)
|Everything vegan and organic!!|
|Rice with seaweed, lightly seasoned with wasabi|
|the inevitable and irresistible tempura|
lotus root and tofu!
Anyway, I really recommend this to anyone who likes Japanese food, who prefers plant-based food to animal nasties, or who simply wished to enjoy an elaborate but natural and healthy meal!
(Gochisousama deshita: thank you for the delicious meal!)
