15 minutes by cab from Himeji Station. “SAI-CAFE” is supervised by Chef Kusumoto of “Saido” in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo, which holds the title of the world’s best vegan restaurant.

While the entire menu, which is all vegan and made only with vegetables including ramen and curry, have been praised by foreigners, who say, “This is so good! I can’t believe that this is vegan! “or “There are not many vegan restaurants in Japan, so I’m very happy about it. ”

The English menu makes it easy to order. The signature item is, definitely, ramen. Ingredients are thoroughly selected, seasonal vegetables from nature-rich Tanba Sasayama and rice malt amazake made from Yamada Nishiki, the king of sake rice, for sweetener.

The low-sugar noodles have 40% less sugar than regular noodles. The menu includes original noodle dishes that can only be found here, such as “Ginger Miso,” a specialty of Himeji, “Abura Soba” dressed with spicy sauce and “Tamba Saisai” finished with a cold black vinegar sauce.

We also offer curries with special spices. Topping it with pork cutlet is also popular. In the “Saisai Course,” in which you can choose ramen or curry as a main dish, you can also enjoy a salad and desert by paying an additional 200 yen to each of the single dish.

In addition, drinks and sweets such as parfaits, smoothies, and coffee are also on standby. The cafe menu is for also vegans using soy milk and oats as substitutes for whip, milk, cream, yogurt and other ingredients.

The owner’s wish is to “provide meals that everyone can enjoy with a smile in Himeji, where people from all over the world gather. ” That owner’s wish is really overflowing in the restaurant, full of surprises in both appearance and taste.
