I am sad to announce that SOAKS – Nakameguro has permanently closed down, and is no longer offering their services. However, HealthyTOKYO.com have a vast range of other vegetarian cafes and restaurants we would be happy to introduce to you. Such as Trueberry, also located in Nakameguro!It is with great pleasure that we can announce the addition of SOAKS, the first vegetable powder restaurant in Japan, to our network of Healthy Partners.
SOAKS has an interesting approach to healthier and organic eating. By supercharging their dishes and drinks with vegetable powder, SOAKS serves flavor-rich cuisine with greater amounts of vitamins and minerals. To create the powder, vegetables from western Japan, certified fertilizer-free are used. Ten grams of vegetable is concentrated into one gram of powder, making it easier than ever to fill your daily quota of greens and reds.
Gourmet reporter Kumiko Takeshima first started experimenting with baking healthy doughnuts using vegetable powder when she created OK Doughnuts. These donuts are healthy and rich with vitamins. Healthy Restaurant SOAKS evolved naturally, becoming the first vegetable powder restaurant in Japan. Over-time she has expanded her vegetable powder food line-up with pasta, pancakes, soups, salads, meat dishes and the SOAKS specialty: vegetable latte.
Check out their video below to get a feeling of the cozy nature themed interior with wooden furniture, as well as the warm atmosphere surrounding the wonderful people at SOAKS.
For HealthyTOKYO Premium Members visiting SOAKS, they are happy to be able to offer a choice between a free complimentary Green Leaf Salad with Ginger Dressing or Vegetable Latte with your dinner or lunch order. The salad dressing is made with ginger powder and the vegetable lattes come in four flavors: carrot, pumpkin, spinach and purple sweet potato.
For those who want to supercharge their own food, assorted vegetable powder packages can be purchased in the restaurant as well as through SOAKS online shop. To inspire the chef in us all, Kumiko has put together free recipes and created instructional videos on how to cook healthier and tastier with the help of vegetable powder. Stay tuned for an upcoming article and video on how to create a salad in a jar.
