We picked “arcana TOKYO,” located near Tokyo Station, as our second tour of Smile Veggie Navi.
Menu de Légume, which we ordered, offered us all veggie dishes from appetizers to desserts, because we asked the restaurant for a vegan arrangement. (reservation is needed by the previous day.)
Amazingly, the full-course included 13 dishes in total!!
As the restaurant explained their concept, “Each dish focuses on one vegetable, and we try to make it look as beautiful as possible and cook it as deliciously as possible,” every dish was made by simple recipe to get the best out of ingredient’s flavor, and at the same time looked very beautiful to our eyes and seemed to tell some stories to us.
We show you some dishes in the photos the restaurants kindly gave us.
・Tomate（fruit tomato cup）
The fresh of a super fruit tomato with high sugar content is scooped out into cup-like shape, and slices of zucchini, couscous, and eggplant are put in it. You can taste it with Genovese sauce or tomato sauce. Peppermints can be added as an accent.
In addition, they served us several other plates with asparaguses, onions, fennels, and mountain vegetables which were also enjoyable to watch. We felt those colorful and showy dishes would be particularly preferred by women. Even the plate wares were so cute, which excited us very much.
Please enjoy more photos of their dishes below, some of which we haven’t eaten yet.
In the case of receiving a reservation for more than 2 people, they said they would try to arrange the menu along with each guest’s dietary habit (vegetarian, halal, food allergy and so on) as much as possible. They kindly gave us an encouraging message: “Please feel free to give us any inquiries.” Isn’t this kind of place valuable, where men and women of all ages can enjoy nice meal in relief?
When you are to decide where to eat on a special day, sometimes you have a difficulty in choosing one restaurant appropriate to each person’s taste and constitution. In that case, “arcana TOKYO” could be the best choice for you!
On this visit, we ordered “Menu de légume” (8400 Yen), but they can arrange vegan menu in any course from 5400 Yen
(Tax and service charge are not included.)
