Shojin ryori is a traditional and sophisticated Buddhist cuisine centered around soybean based products and vegetables. Subtle yet luxurious, each ethical, plant-based dish harmonizes with the Buddhism philosophy, offering a great balance in both presentation and flavor.
The restaurant embraces you into a peaceful but exquisite atmosphere, and you can also enjoy the picturesque Japanese garden view.
A variety of set meals are available, all presented elegantly with symbolic names that emphasize the beauty of nature: snow, moon, and flower. The ingredients change seasonally, but usually include a bowl of rice, soup, and a type of Kyoto tofu dish along with assorted vegetables and fruits. You might imagine a light and simple meal, but shojin ryori here is very voluminous and rich-flavored.
Completely vegan, the food is well-seasoned and very refreshing, as the original flavors come from natural ingredients.
You can visit Shigetsu throughout the year from 11 AM to 2 PM.
