New Menu from Saido
The highly acclaimed vegetarian/vegan restaurant, Saido in Jiyugaoka, which holds the world’s top rating on the Happy Cow search site, has launched a long-awaited new menu item in April 2023. The new item, “Marukin Tsukemen,” is a noodle dish that uses a generous amount of high-quality enoki mushrooms provided by Marukin Enoki, a company that upholds the concept of “mushrooms as the fruits of the forest.”
Using high-quality enoki mushrooms that Chef Kusumoto praises as “I can’t go back to regular enoki mushrooms anymore,” this delicious tsukemen (dipping noodles) has a rich and flavorful soup with balanced umami, acidity, and richness that complements the specially ordered medium-thick noodles perfectly. Many customers come back for this dish, and it has already become a popular menu item. Chef Kusumoto describes it as a dish where you can luxuriously savor the overflowing umami.
The meal comes in a course menu, available for both lunch (3,000 yen~) and dinner (5,000~).
