Mitaka's Organic Food Gem: C-Cafe's Sunday Organic Lunch

If you're not headed out to a farmer's market this weekend, another great option for Tokyo-ites is C-Cafe in Mitaka. The third Sunday of each month they host an outstanding organic buffet (tabe-hodai or all-you-you-can-eat) for a mere 1,000 yen. Featuring vegetables from a local organic farm, it's hard to beat for flavor, health, and fun. And while it is a bit out of the way, Keta-san's curry is enough reward for the effort you'll expend.

Check out my article over at Eco+Waza describing it, and then mark your calendar for the September buffet! You'll be glad you did.

This sounds like it would definitely be worth trying!

Just took a quick tour of several posts from your biking adventure vacation. Amazing look at Japan, a place I've never been but would now love to go some day. Some of the foods, though, sound so exotic. I'm not sure I'd be able to try everything. Squid, for one. I'm just not sure I'd be able to give that a try, especially since I"m not big on eating sashimi. Do you grow to like it, get used to it, or what?

It is wonderful. If we were able to go this month, I'd be there in a heartbeat!

Bike Lady, you get used to it. Although, I'll say that we tend to give squid a pass. It's a bit too chewy for us. Others, though, are great. I don't turn down anything (except for liver) on a first try or offer. Some things, like natto, I've even grown to like. And others, like engawa, I've loved from the first bit. (Natto is fermented soy beans and engawa is the flesh of the fin.)
