Hg2 : The Hedonist

Bon

Forget raw fish. Vegetables, in all their seasonal glory, are not to be missed in Japan. At Bon, the art of eating veggies is elevated to spiritual heights – quite literally. Here, the specialty is ‘shojin ryori’ – the vegetarian cuisine of Zen Buddhist monks. Delicately flavoured, meticulously prepared and exquisitely presented, the sampling of such cuisine is not to be missed.

At Bon, a serene establishment in Iriya, guests are seated at low tables in private tatami mat rooms. With an emphasis on the ‘fucha’ brand of ‘shojin ryori’ , the food at Bon is more relaxed than conventional temple fare. Kicking off with tea ceremony, a rainbow-hued stream of dishes – from vegetable sashimi and sesame tofu to miso soup and tempura – are served to guests.

Presentation is paramount: the Zen-like balance of colors is apparent in the prettily prepared dishes adorned with seasonal flowers and leaves and served in delicate ceramics and lacquerware containers.
