Respond to Review of SaiShokuKenBi
Review: Located in a courtyard off a quiet street near the north entrance to Okubu station, this restaurant is not the easiest place to find. Just as you are giving up hope, you look to the left and see a statue of a fat, happy Buddha - this is the place! SaiShokuKenBi has recently started doing an evening buffet a couple of nights a week, and we went there on a Friday evening. The choice of food was substantial, with soups, rice, curry, various skewers, vegetable dishes, salads, pickles, a couple of western style dishes, a choice of desserts, juices and an incomprehesibly wide selection of teas. Not everything was vegan, but that which isn't is marked - in Japanese. For me, egg (卵) is the really important issue, and it was great to have that indicated. The dairy-based dishes were obvious - the gratin, for example. SaiShokuKenBi also has a shop attached, selling mock meat and other vegetarian products, and their own cookbooks.
