We stopped in the popular Tennoji location at the Mio Plaza overlooking Tennoji Central Park and minutes from Bornelund Playville, Tennoji Zoo, and Spa World. We ordered their 39 healthy items special which came with refillable brown rice and a vegetable-packed miso soup,tofu, salad, wakame, vegetables, dessert and nutritious drink (1100 JPY). Their menu and website tells you where the ingredients are sourced for example their brown rice is from a farm in Saku City, Nagano, vegetables from Wakayama and Kagoshima Prefecture, their cage-free chicken from Ishikawa, etc. Stop in for a healthy and delicious meal.
