All-You-Can-Eat Vegetable Bar for Only ¥500!

Restaurants Japanese Food Organic Kyoto

Miyako Yasai Kamo in Kyoto boasts an all-you-can-eat buffet throughout the day, full of seasonal, locally grown vegetables that are organic and pesticide-free. While each of their three locations are open for three meals throughout the day, breakfast is by far the cheapest at just ¥500 (US$4.90) for one adult.

Once inside, you can purchase a meal ticket from the machine for the “Field Bar,” which consists of baskets of nothing but freshly chopped, sliced and diced field vegetables, plain and simple. Unless you’ve already tried the delectable morsels from this buffet, we bet you’ve never even imagined the possibility that vegetables could be packed with as much flavor as these!

They even serve up manganji togarashi, a type of pepper cultivated in Maizuru City, Kyoto Prefecture.

You can also choose mizunasu, a type of eggplant as a topping with your salad...

and let's not forget the salad dressing!

Even natto (fermented soybean) skeptics may have a change of heart once they try it mixed with fresh scallions at Miyako Yasai Kamo.

The breakfast buffet is limited in quantity, so if you’re hoping to start your day the veggie way we recommend going early or just biting the bullet and going for the slightly more expensive lunch or dinner instead. In any case, your stomach and taste buds will definitely thank you for indulging in such a fresh, organic meal.
