cafe salunpowak

Wanting to share my recent cafe experience with Satoshi, over the weekend I suggested we go to Cafe Salunpowak for lunch.

The past couple of days, the sky really changed to Autumn clouds, though during the day, the nip is gone and it is still quite warm.

At least it isn't humid.

This cafe is vegetarian. Satoshi ordered the curry, this is made with root vegetables like gobo (burdock), carrot, potato and other vegetables....945 yen (about US$9.45)

If you order a drink with the curry they minus 100 yen (about US$1) from the price of the drink.

Satoshi chose to try the grain coffee, a non-caffeinated drink....450 yen (about US$4.50) with discount 350 yen (about US$3.50).

I chose the Pita sandwich set...1050 yen (about US$10.50).

This came with 3 pita sandwiches...onion carrot slaw, chickpea curry & tofu pumpkin. I loved the flavors of all of these, especially the tofu pumpkin because it fakes you into thinking you are eating egg salad. Though the pita were REALLY chewy.

My set came with a drink, I chose the iced version of the grain coffee and it also came with a tiny dessert...chocolate soy "ice cream" with nuts.

I think my lunch set was the best deal.

Satoshi enjoyed his curry, the coffee not so much but thought the ice cream tasted good too.

We liked the food and atmosphere overall, very quiet...we'll be back.

Hi Kat - I can't say that I've ever had Gobo in curry before. That sounds interesting.
