Critique by A-grade gourmets
Overall rating ★★
An inn that welcomes you like a home from home. To make the most of local ingredients, no seasonings are added.
The concept of the inn is “a home for the nostalgic heart” and they take great care in hospitality. In order to make guests feel at home, they try not to be too formal, but more like a guest house than a hotel.
The food is another attraction of the inn. With the exception of winter, when vegetables are scarce, most of the ingredients are produced in Niigata. They do not use any processed or semi-processed products, and even the dressings and the sauce for the pot roast are handmade in the kitchen. They also use pickles made by neighbours. The dashi and seasonings are all additive-free.
Not only the head chef, but also most of the kitchen staff are from the local area. They are all very knowledgeable about local ingredients and cooking methods. Not only the cooks, but also the catering staff are mostly locals or have married into the local community.
The young proprietress says, “There are many people these days who say they don’t have a hometown, so I hope those people will think of us as their hometown.”
