 It is Nerikore beyond 100 articles in 2,013 years. "Specially made cabbage roll of cabbage from Nerima of screw fatty Saito is one of the products authorized newly this year, too". Special Menu that we made for old woman of regular customer became popular and, according to the Misao Saito of chef, came to provide as the back menu.

"We wrap ground meat of Japanese black beef and black pork in cabbage from Nerima and we stew with red wine-based sauce and put on 1st. Furthermore, we add red wine and complete sauce. It is the finish such as old beef stew (chef)

 We say that it is appreciation to area to use vegetables from Nerima.

When "we can contribute to Nerima what it is. Local vegetables have just finished being produced in that and are fresh. Such vegetables which farmers knowing traditional how to make sell surplus of vegetables which oneself eat to are the most delicious. There are few pesticides, too and is safe (chef)

"We notice that we boil vegetables with many pesticides for smell. We are in the middle of cooking sauce and start again. We think that it is not cook if we take that out (chef)

 For calm demeanor, it is chef with core. Kayoko of wife as sommelier seat chef kitchen…Screw fatty Saito which did this in tandem. We set up store in Ekoda and reached the 15th year in 2,013 years.

"It is student street, but breaks French and Italian border when we provide pasta and rice to needs. We were determined to be allowed to be destroyed and carried through faith to "be faithful to basics of bistro". You became able to gradually come toward the hometown (chef)

 We are loved as shop which adult can enjoy in Ekoda by such faith and disposition.

We love dishes since childhood
Original is born by trial and error

 Chef was 24 years old, and encounter of two was time of Kayoko 21 years old.

"Husband went so that I still ate as visitor in the shop for the study era. Moment when we met, "bibibi!" Come in this (laugh). "This person is successful in later years. I support!" We felt intuitionally in this and attacked hard (Kayoko)

 Sudden marriage is the most fatal one year later! But we call "chef" at workshop and distribute the official and private matters well. It was from advice of chef that we got qualification of sommelier. On the other hand, Kayoko recommends chef to take license of "food education instructor instructor". It is wonderful couple raising each other! >

As for "the husband, dishes are lovers (laugh). Though we are absent, we stand in the kitchen when "that child lets fire and wants" and. Often say somniloquy of dishes; (laugh) (Kayoko)

 Chef who loves dishes and ingredients like own child. The love dates back to the child era.

Since the days of "elementary school 2-3 years student, we went to field at the very beginning when we returned from school. We learned there true taste of seasonal vegetables. Vegetables of Nerima think that taste that we ate these days is near. We hate to see recipe from the old days. What make dishes with self-image, and make trial and error is fun how it becomes this taste. Original menu is created from that (chef)

It "was suffered a disease, and customer of regular customer had opportunity when "the Last Supper" was ordered. It is deeply impressive when we think whether you provided dishes left on page 1 of history of the person. We felt importance of dishes some other time and felt that mind was tightened (chef, Kayoko)

 Dishes and screw fatty Saito which is sincere, and continues facing each other. Therefore we felt that it was chosen as shop which we wanted to spend with person who was important for knot of the life.
