Daigo: Sublime Buddhist Cuisine In Tokyo (Info & Reservation)
Buddhist Cuisine (精進料理) is delicately prepared vegetarian cuisine. It is inspired by the seasons, and most importantly by Buddhist philosophy. The cuisine is simple and fresh and no meat is used. It is a reminder to use mindfulness in your daily life. This restaurant is actually a 2-star Michelin restaurant, so you will be left completely speechless by the presentation and taste of these incredible dishes.
Just because this cuisine is vegan that doesn't mean this cuisine is by any means bland. Dish after dish, it is colorful, creative and delicious. Even if you're not vegan or even vegetarian, you will find it delicious!
This is normally enjoyed within a temple or at a restaurant around the temple. This will definitely make for an unforgettable Japanese zen experience.
They start at 10,000 yen for lunch; for dinner, they start at 15,000 yen.
The dishes are made with carefully selected seasonal ingredients from the Tsukiji market.
Location and Hours
The restaurant is open for lunch from 11:30 to 2 PM, and for dinner from 5 PM to 8 PM. Please keep in mind it's a Michelin-starred restaurant so you will probably have to reserve quite in advance.
*Some dishes use a little bit of dried bonito (fish) and eggs, so please let them know at least a day in advance if you wish to have a vegan meal.
