In the heart of one of Tokyo's old working-class Shitamachi (downtown) neighborhoods, Sasa-no-yuki has been serving meals based on homemade tofu for the past 315 years. The food is inspired in part by shojin ryori (Buddhist vegetarian cuisine). The basic three-course set menu includes ankake (bean curd in sweet soy sauce), uzumi tofu (scrambled with rice and green tea), and unsui (a creamy tofu crepe filled with sea scallops, shrimp, and minced red
pepper). For bigger appetites, there's also an eight-course banquet. There's both tatami and table seating, and the dining room includes a view of the Japanese garden complete with waterfall.
