Service: Very friendly although a bit shy!
Equipment: Great overall cleanliness
Strong points: Vegetarian menus. Healthy rice flour cakes.
Whenever I have to take lunch away from work and that I wish to avoid the great but heavy on my system repasts, the place for a nice, healthy and tasty meal is Locomani only a 3-minute walk away!
They have three great lunch sets. either vegetarian or omnivore, that you can enjoy at all ease inside a comfortable all-wood set-up so conducing to relaxation. Although busy at lunch time, the atmosphere is perfectly clean as no smoking has ever been allowed there!
All the ingredients are carefully selected, most of them local and many organic!
What did I have this time, then?
Rice can be either plain white or genmai/whole. I chose the combination of the two!
Although the menus change regularly the miso soup is always vegetarian and you can expect healthy and yummy tidbits like mushrooms and hijiki sweet seaweed!
And there is always a dish of freshly cooked seasonal greens!
The main dish!
Note that organic red tea is also included!
Now if you are vegan, have a talk with the chef one day when the place is not busy and I’m sure he will know how to satisfy your priorities!
There will always be fresh and often organic salad!
This time I had delicious, crunchy and juicy deep-fried vegetable Imperial rolls!
As you can see, you don’t have to be omnivore to be satisfied!
Even if you are not a vegetarian like me!
Once again I managed to keep myself away from their cakes! LOL
