The other week I visited Spice for the second time for lunch again!
Here is a place with a true notion of healthy food!
Practically all vegetables are grown locally and most of the meat is also raised in the neighborhood!
Considering the quality, variety and taste, these lunches are a real bargain!

The Missus and I both opted for the 1,890 yen lunch (the most expensive on the menu).
Here what we savored:

It includes first a large vegetables plate which can be ordered individually for 1,050 yen as a “Vegetables Lunch Plate”!
Let me show it to you in detail:

Marinated mushrooms, tougan/winter melon/冬瓜 ratatouille and kabocha salad with raw ham.

Vegetables for dipping in the Italian-style Bania Cauda sauce!

The Bania Cauda dip sauce and various sorts of beautiful crunchy and tasty lettuce!

Delicious cauliflower and vegetables soup!

As the main dish the Missus had ordered the salmon and broccoli spaghetti!

For a better view!

My bread was served with sumptuous olive oil!

My main dish: Jidori Chicken raised in the region roasted and served with luccola sauce on a bed of mushrooms and accompanied with fried local vegetables!

Perfectly balanced sauce!

Beautiful and delicious vegetables!

The menu also included a cute home-made raspberry ice cream…

… and coffee served as it should be!

Pity it is too far to stay there for dinner, but I’ll find a good reason to one day!
