Sister restaurant of “CHAYA macrobiotics” where we can also enjoy meat
CHAYA macrobiotics’ concept is “Healthy & Beauty, Organic Lifestyle”.
Currently four branches are operated in Tokyo and Bojun tomigaya is one of the four restaurants. Only the Tomigaya branch called “Bojun” among the four.
“Although other three CHAYA macrobiotics restaurants don’t serve meat, you can have meat dishes here. The tastes of cuisine are slightly different from others.
I can say the restaurant is distinctive among others” said Mr.Isogai.
The advantages of Bojun tomigaya are original meat and fish dishes as well as authentic macrobiotic dishes. Various menus are available for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
Community-based stylish restaurant
“The kitchen of Bojun tomigaya is visible from customers, which is different from other three restaurants.
When I was working at other three restaurants, I hardly saw customers. But it is such a pleasure to directly see our customers here.”
Meat dishes are also available in the menu of Bojun tomigaya. For a wide variety of choices, many local residents use this restaurant. It is so-called a community-based restaurant.
Sophisticated interior design creates a stylish atmosphere. Spacious and comfortably made space between tables is also nice. We can enjoy meals and coffee in a relaxing atmosphere.
This is Mr.Isogai’s kitchen. He can overlook entire restaurant space. Seeing how his guests are enjoying meals motivates him.
