is an old Japanese saying which means, “Medicine and diet proceeds from the same origin.” This is the Gomen-Kudasai’s business policy. If your daily diet is clean, healthy and well-balanced, you don’t need to take medicine or supplements too often. You would always feel good and strong.
We are preparing our dishes with lots of NATURAL & ORGANIC ingredients including LOCAL produce & products, and trying to stay away from food chemicals as much as possible. Another important motto for us is: LOW SALT, LOW SUGAR & LOW FAT. Our big bowl of broth contains 2g organic sugar, 1.7g sea salt & NO FAT. Instead of adding lots of seasonings, we are using our house-made MOTHER SAUCE called WARISHITA.
GOMEN WARISHITA is made with ORGANIC SOY SAUCE, IMPORTED MIRIN, KOMBU SEAWEED, DRIED SHIITAKE MUSHROOM, BONITO CHIPS and MACKEREL CHIPS. These ingredients will sit together for 3 days, then will be cooked and fermented for months. Because of the long time fermentation, the deep flavors from oceans & mountains will be fused into the sixth taste called UMAMI. This special UMAMI is added to each bowl of noodle soup. That is why we don’t need MSG. Every time you have a sip of noodle soup, you will experience the UMAMI and the power of fermentation which will boost up your immune system.
Our menu features many popular Japanese home & restaurant items which are recreated by Youko’s own recipes: Hot or cold noodle dishes, rice dishes, appetizers, original sweets, a variety of teas, and a large selection of GLUTEN FREE & VEGAN OPTIONS. If you have some health issues, please talk to Youko. She will be happy to figure out a dish that makes you feel good.
EAT, STAY HEALTHY and BE HAPPY
