Café serving healthy food and sweets using local Kyoto ingredients near Togetsukyo
"musubi cafe" is located close to Togetsukyo in the Arashiyama sightseeing area. Visitors to the cafe can sample meals and sweets made using healthy Kyoto ingredients. I recommend trying the set menu that includes both meat and vegetables, but there are also vegetarian options available. The wooden interior creates a sense of warmth and freedom. Some of the tables also have a bench seating in addition to chairs. This is great if you are taking children. The café is open for both lunch and teatime, which is an added bonus. And lastly, the café also boasts a shower room complete with lockers. If you work up a sweat taking in Arashiyama by bicycle, you should definitely pay musubi cafe a visit.
Local foods lunch
This is a set menu that primarily uses local Kyoto ingredients and offers both meat and vegetables. The dishes use little salt and are seasoned in a way that emphasizes the flavor of the ingredients. The set includes both a main and side dish, pickles, miso soup, and the rice of your choice (either brown rice or mixed grains). The food served in the set changes daily.
Vegetable and tomato pasta
This pasta dish aimed at vegetarians bases itself on the sweet flavor and fragrance of tomatoes and fried onions. It also uses little salt and goes down with ease. Mushrooms and pumpkin are also used in the dish, allowing a variety of different textures to be enjoyed. It's cooked fresh and comes out hot, so take care not to burn yourself!
Tofu Cake（Matcha and Kinako）
The cake has a cream made from tofu and matcha. It has a light flavor and showcases the perfect balance between matcha's mellow aroma and the fragrant scent of kinako (roasted soybean flour). If you want to make it a little sweeter, you should eat it together with a little anko (bean paste).
