Cafe&Meal Muji : Japanese Home Cook Experience

As what everyone does in the end of the year, I was pretty busy on the past few weeks either it was for “wrapping up 2016” or making 2017 resolution. Last week was a period where I was so in the mood for reorganizing my room to welcome new year. Hence, I went to shop new organizers at Muji, a Japanese retail shop which sells wide variety of consumer and household goods that Anissa would refer has oshare design. Specifically, I went to the Muji shop located at 5F of BAL Kyoto. At the same building, Muji Cafe&Meal is also available.

When I first entered the place I was quite confused since it only provides menu with Japanese. Overall, we can order two types of dishes; hot and cold deli. These cold and hot deli menu is changing everyday. Cold deli is literally cold, mostly salad and side dishes which priced 240¥. Main dish is included in the hot deli which priced 280¥. However, you can also purchase a set with 2 hot deli and 2 cold deli including bread or rice with 1000¥, or 850¥ set with 1 hot deli and 2 cold deli including bread or rice. I chose the second set with one sesame fried mackerel, caesar salad, and one cold dish (which I forgot the name) with fish and olive oil sauce. Because I stay for quite long to do my homework, I also ordered a dessert set of matcha new york cheesecake and a coffee.

Just like the Ikea Restaurant concept which offers Sweden typical menu, Cafe&Meal Muji offers a Japanese style home cook menu; one cup of rice, three or four small portion of dishes with a misho soup and hot green tea. The flavor was not something unexpected as I tried Japanese home cook before. Nevertheless, I can say it represents what Japanese eat at home so it will be an experience if you are a tourist visiting Japan as the price is cheaper than most washoku restaurants. As for the matcha NY cheesecake, I would say 4 out of 5 stars for the flavor. In fact, I like it a lot that I look for the recipe on their website.
