Shojin Cuisine and I 06-07-2009

Feelings: When I learned that Kajitsu, the first authentic Shojin cuisine restaurant in NYC, opened in East Village 2-3 months ago, I had a nostalgic memory of my recent trip to Kyoto (pictured above). It is extremely difficult to find vegan cuisine in Japan since most dishes are based with fish broth, but Kyoto offers a lot of traditional Zen Buddhist's vegan cuisine, "Shojin Ryori." I look forward to trying this authentic cuisine at Kajitsu soon!
