Multinational low-carb and vegetarian foods, “Cosi Cosi”

“Cosi Cosi” multinational restaurant serving a variety of vegetarian dishes is located within a five minute walk from the Toristu-Daigaku Station.

The restaurant stylishly displaying empty bottles of wine has a relaxing and warm atmosphere. So many drinks and foods are on the menu that it takes long time to decide which to order.

Besides meat and fish, many vegetarian dishes are available. Its cheese dishes are particularly recommended such as pizza with fresh Burrata cheese made in Toyo and Raclette cheese.

You can also find a variety of gluten-free menus. When we visited there, it was in low-carb weeks. Rice flour vegetarian Burrito was on the menu.

In the 18 Ingredients Vegan Salad, quinoa, sunflower seed, fried tofu and dressing are packed in a jar. Shake it well before serving.

Star-shaped or heart-shaped carrots and shredded beets make the salad cute and colourful.

Vegan Spicy Croquettes (falafel) are served in a small hot stone pot.

Eat them with tomato sauce and yogurt sauce. Also beet, tomato and broccoli make the dish beautifully colourful. The hot stone pot kept the croquettes warm.

For dessert, we had pineapple and fruits ice in a pineapple bowl on Monster leaves served on a super cold plate.

This is also a vegan dish. A topping for the ice was a Halloween cookie since it was the day for Halloween.

This cute decoration idea was from the female chef. It was refreshingly delicious. The portion was big and we could share the dessert.

It has a homelike atmosphere. The cafe opened a year ago, but will be closed within 2 years due to the reconstruction of the building. We can enjoy the food only for another 2 more years!

I had the Plate Lunch of 9 dishes; simmered Daikon, miso soup, butternut potage, fried wheat gluten, salad, seaweed mixed with citrus fruit, red Daikon mixed with malt, pumpkin mixed with peanut paste and 3 day fermented brown rice.

Fermented brown rice mixed with Adzuki was chewy, soft and delicious. According to the restaurant, fermenting brown rice for 3 days makes the best result.

Nicely decorated plate also satisfies our tummy.

At the Yumin café, vegetables are cooked without water according to the macrobiotic cooking method, layer method. Making the most of the yin and yang characteristics of vegetables, the order of the layers is considered.

The owner, Mr.Yumin also organizes monthly cooking class in the area. Besides, the café participates in events and offers catering services.
