I visited the “Shokujin” Asian cafeteria at the Kanda University of International Studies during the weekend when it is opened to the public. Shokujin was packed with foreign customers and I felt immersed in an exotic atmosphere, completely unlike that of Japan. 7 dishes were available, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Halal, and a kids’ meal. Lunch, served with dessert and noodles, will only set you back 1,000 yen. It was quite delicious and the serving size was perfect.
The “Shokujin” Asian cafeteria is the first student cafeteria in Japan to acquire “Muslim Friendly Halal certification” from the NAHA (Nippon Asia Halal Association).
Broth is used, as alcohol is contained in soy sauce, vegetable oil is used for frying, and mirin is not used. Of course they don’t use pork, and the cooking process is strictly managed. The cookware and tableware provided to customers enjoying the Halal meal is only used with Halal items, and Halal foods are also stored in separate areas.
Here is a coupon. The drink bar is free
The buffet in the evening is 1,980 yen for adults, 1,180 yen for elementary school students, and 480 yen for infants.
