Organic Restaurant SOAKS in Nakameguro Since 2011


Organic Restaurant SOAKS in Nakameguro is a small charming shop and café that offers a variety of healthy vegetarian and meat dishes, including organic salads, hearty pastas, homemade sausages, and delectable pancakes. Located just a few minutes’ walk from Nakameguro Station past the Meguro River, Soaks specializes in creating wholesome meals imbued with their unique vitamin-and-mineral-packed ingredient: 100% vegetable powder.

In addition to scrumptious food, SOAKS also serves organic fruit and vegetable juices, as well as make their own nourishing vegetable lattes. With flavours such as pumpkin, carrot, and spinach to choose from, you’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated as you sip on them while taking in the quaint woody interior, watching the cooks prepare in their open kitchen. Craft beer, wine, and other cocktails and drinks are available for those who choose.

SOAKS is the brainchild of Kumiko Takeshima, a former television personality food and gourmet reporter. In 2008, she developed OK Doughnuts, a concept that came from Kumiko wanting to devise a healthy delicious snack by combining vegetables and doughnuts. That’s when she struck upon the idea of utilizing 100% vegetable powder as a main ingredient. After finding success with her line of lotus root, ginger, burdock, tomato, and ashitaba (Angelica Keiskei) vegetable powder infused doughnuts, Kumiko thought to broaden the use of vegetable powder into foods and drinks. By 2011, SOAKS was born.

SOAKS is the first in Japan to have created menus based on and featuring vegetable powder. Its benefits to health and diet come from the fact that the powder is made from 100% fertilizer-free vegetables from western Japan and is concentrated in form (three grams of vegetable powder amounts to thirty grams of actual vegetable). These powders smell and taste amazingly vibrant and dynamic! For those who don’t like to eat vegetables the traditional way, SOAKS provides the perfect solution to getting all the health benefits without having to!

Organic Restaurant SOAKS in Nakameguro is open from 10:30 to 23:00. Their mouthwatering menu is written in English and Japanese, and their chefs go to great lengths to develop and design dishes that aren’t just about tantalizing the taste buds; all the senses are attentively tempted and catered to. Soaks also cares about every element that goes into their food. Take their OK Doughnuts, for example: aluminum-free baking powder, whole wheat flour, transfat-free 100% palm oil, sugar beet, and vegetable powder are all they contain.

With their unique drinks and healthy treats and eats, Soaks is the ideal place to take a break or have lunch or dinner while you’re in town. As Kumiko says, “Eat yourself beautiful.”

Thirteen varieties of vegetable powder are available to purchase for home use. SOAKS provides free recipes and how tos for those eager to try.
