piatto nono

the best soup is in shoo

image (1)

It’s hotter than a preheated oven here in Japan so I know you’re not going to want to hear about soup but believe me when I say the soup lunch at Piatto Nono is the best I’ve ever had. EVER. Plus, the place is air conditioned so anything’s possible. So what makes their soup so special? Probably the fact that it contains the entirety of Mimasaka’s summer produce. Seriously. Let’s play spot the vegetables.
mushroom
onion
broccoli
potato
green beans
carrot
cabbage
eggplant
radish
zucchini
celery
asparagus
spring onion
Pumpkin
and if all that weren’t enough of a flavor boost, a poached egg and some very good quality bacon are present, too.  For 1180 yen about hmm $13 NZD you get the nutritious dense soup, a choice of mixed grain rice or a bread roll and a drink, too! So what are you waiting for? Grab your ladle and head to Shoo.

An additional non-food related note:
restaurant is fancy (doubles as art gallery/jewelry store) so you know, don’t rock up in jorts.
