Keep your eyes open as it is easy to miss!
Vegan gastronmy seems to have acquired its letters in Shizuoka City as one more establishment opened last week in Takajo, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
That makes no less than four of them now (one closed due to the pregnancy of its owner!)!
It is difficult to miss, so follow the indications carefully: go up Kitakado Street till Mizuochi Intersection (you will see a police box on the left-hand side). Turn right. You will find their sign on the right hand-side. If you haven’t found it before the first street on the left walk back!
Walk upstairs. Panchavati is on your right-hand side!
The building is a bit ancient but the restaurant is very clean with one counter and three tables. And it’s entirely non-smoking!
The menu icludes two set menus, one curry plate, desserts and drinks.
All the vegetables used in the recipes are natural or organic and local.
The food is all vegan, including dessert!
The first dish!
Home-pickled vegetables and tofu cooked in miso and red wine!
The main dish!
Plenty of vegetable miso soup!
Steamed or boiled vegetables with sake white lees/sakekasu dip sauce, potato and rape flowers croquettes with sweet carrot sauce!
Looking at the Chef Ken Tanaka/田中健さん’s vegan cakes I couldn’t help ordering one!
Kinako/soy bean flour pound cake!
I’m no vegan, but I can assure you I was full with all that healthy food!
Organic Kouji Tea to wash it all down!
Even if you are not a vegan, it is still very tasty healthy healthy food to enjoy from time to time!
