Introducing whole foods cooking, (or uncooking ) using healing organic/biodynamic ingredients, emphasising the importance on raw vegetables, fruits, fermented and whole natural foods. With the knowledge gained over the years, meals are always nurturing and loving to your body and soul, and of course your taste-buds! Based on Raw and living food cuisine, enhanced with contemporary and traditional idea of macrobiotic , Chinese philosophy, integrating the knowledge from both East Asian system and modern nutrition.
Simple, healthy, raw. Delicious salads and noodle. The bread tasted a bit funny but maybe it just takes getting used to. Huge servings. We all felt full well into the night after lunch here. Friendly staff and expect a long wait. Self service for menu and order at the counter. There are super foods and teas, book for sale. The beverage menu is huge, including teas. Chai latte was a little too strong for me and a runny type, not the creamy one. It is not bad at all.
Shokuiku is quite amazing! The philosophy is to heal the body using traditional foods and herbs and raw foods. Food fads come and go but healthy and beautifully-presented dishes never go out of style. The herbal tea list is simply amazing in itself! If you fancy trying some raw, macrobiotic food this is a great start.
