Shojin Ryori is a type of Buddhist cuisine that is followed by monks and many believers from areas historically influenced by Chinese Buddhism.
Today, I’d like to introduce a restaurant in Roppongi that offers Shojin Ryori called “Sougo”.
Shojin Ryori that Sougo provides is a casual vegetarian cuisine, which follows the profound spirit of Buddhism. The food has a bit of modern touch and has very elegant and delicate tastes. The lunch I had the other day in the restaurant looks very sophisticated and just by looking at the dishes (see a picture below), you can’t really tell if the meal is meat free or not (Of course, the menu does not include any meat). What a creativity in every dish!
After having small dishes, you can end your meal with some carbs. I chose Soba noodles with fried mushrooms on which was really yummy.
