If you’re a fan of sesame, you won’t want to miss Gomacro! Everything on the menu – including the drinks and desserts – is made using some form of sesame, giving their dishes a distinctive and delicious flavor. The focus here is on healthy and seasonal food. As well as being vegan, the restaurant uses no white sugar or chemical additives. They offer a choice of four different lunch sets – ramen, a macrobiotic vegetable plate, curry, and a burger – each of which can be ordered with a drink and mini dessert included. The ramen is made with soy milk, sesame, and miso, creating an unbelievably rich and creamy sauce. For dessert, you can choose between rich chocolate cake, a flavorful sesame and nut tart, and a unique sesame brûlée. Can’t decide? Go for the assorted dessert plate and you won’t have to!
