I wish all my vegan and vegeterian friends could at least visit once Uzu Izakaya in Shizuoka City!
They try really hard to serve local organic vegetables, especially those grown by Mr Satsuki at Satsuki Bio Farm in Shibakawa Cho, Fujinomiya City at the foot of Mount Fuji!

The above salad was ordered last Thursday by the Missus.
It was enormous and I was certainly supposed to help finishi it!
We were actually lucky to get as they they were limited to 5 serving only.
We always make a point of ordering it as the vegetables will be different next time!

They did include many varieties, some of which I can’t remember.
There are red okra, white goya, Red Moon and Inca mezame potatoes (first fried), black tomatoes, green peppers, shishito chili pepper, red chickory/endive, orange, zucchini, the whole basket!

Another view!

To be savored one at a time, with chopsticks (and a great glass of sake!)!
