The review of  Minokichi

I really love the restaurant!
As this restaurant has been operated for hundreds year and the menu basically is original Japanese menu which consists of vegetables and no pork.
However, since Japanese still use mirin or alcohol for cooking, so basically we (Muslims) cannot eat the food.
But, Minokichi does great!
They provide halal menu which are no alcohol but still has authentic Japanese taste!
I ate there with my Japanese colleagues and I asked them about the taste of halal soyu seasoning.
They said that it was the same as the original. It was awesome! Halal menu that they provided was perfect and complete as they have seafood, halal chicken, tempura that very delicious and so Japanese!
Eating authentic Japanese halal food is just perfect, I feel safe and happy. This is the omotenashi of Japan.
