Seasonal Vegetable Set 旬の温野菜盛り合わせ (1,100円)
Both of us ordered the seasonal vegetables set. It comes with some very healthy steamed organic vegetables, serves with house made sesame paste (really awesome!). For grains, you can choose either brown rice or rice congee. It also comes with a daily vegetarian soup, two daily appetizers and a dish of soft-boiled egg.
I chose the rice congee (碁石茶の茶粥), which was made of brown rice and uses a little bit organic unrefined brown sugar as a sweeter.It was so soulful.
The daily soup (本日の汁物) was simple but delicious.
Steamed vegetables (旬の温野菜) seems bland, but as mentioned, was so good with the housemade sesame paste. The sesame paste was not oily and have a lovely sesame aroma, very real flavor.
Daily appetizer: egg plants with green miso.
Local vegetables with tofu
We enjoyed our light,comfort lunch at Chachanoma, it was very simple, affordable and really healthy and delicious.The place is quite small, only around 6 tables and quite popular. Try to be there before 12 to avoid waiting.
