Daigo, a 2-Star Michelin Buddhist Cuisine Restaurant in Tokyo!

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.

Daigo

Have you ever heard of Shojin Ryori? It is traditional cuisine for Buddhist monks. Respecting the Buddhist philosophy, animal products are not used; simply fresh and seasonal fruits and herbs.
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.

Menu

There are different "Kaiseki" (Japanese course where each dish is served one after the other) courses to choose from.
They start at 10,000 yen for lunch; for dinner, they start at 15,000 yen.
The courses come with an assortment of small dishes that are intricately prepared and are a beautiful reminder to be mindful of what we eat and the importance of food.
The dishes are made with carefully selected seasonal ingredients from the Tsukiji market.

Location and Hours

The restaurant is a 5-minute from Kamiyacho Station (Tokyo Metro Line), a 3-minute walk from Onarimon Station (on the Toei Metro Line).

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.

Finally...

Shojin Ryori is something you definitely need to try while in Japan! It is rich in history, and it reflects the Buddhist practice's tradition. It is delicious, beautiful and titillating to the senses.

I love traveling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
