Located in the quiet residential section of Takamiya, Bio Kitchen Minoriwo, which opened in March, occupies a refurbished 60-year old house. Minoriwo is operated by a company that runs a nutrition school and sells fresh Kyushu produce. Aiming to make “healthy foods that people of all ages can enjoy”, Minoriwo offers a menu full of dishes made from organic, additive-free ingredients. The lunches (¥1,100~) are great, but the restaurant is often booked full, so we suggest you enjoy the relaxing ambience at dinnertime. You can request a tailor-made course (¥2,500; reserve at least one day in advance), or you can order a la carte from the vegan and lacto-vegetarian menus. There are also dishes that can be prepared vegan or lacto-vegetarian upon request. The vegetable platter (4 veggies, ¥1,280; 8 veggies, ¥2,580) is so exquisitely presented, you won’t know where to start. There is also a wide selection of drinks including enzyme-rich raw juices (¥400~) and fiber-rich power smoothies (¥580~). At Minoriwo, you can enjoy a delicious, healthy meal with a side of peace of mind.
