Farming Residence Restaurant: Jiroemu
HIGHLIGHT: Admire the 300 year old architecture that is this old farming family residence passed down through generations, now converted into a restaurant. True to their roots, the owner family grows their own organic vegetables, organic rice, and even collects eggs from their own free-range organic chickens. There’s no flourish or fanfare, but these details make all the difference when you have a bite of their delicious traditional Japanese farmer’s meal.
RECOMMENDED: Though it may seem like the simplest dish to make, the rice here is cooked with a great deal of attention and skill. The grandmother sits by the old-fashioned wood burning stove, manipulating the temperature of the fire throughout the entire process as the rice cooks.
