NileGuide Expert tip:
If you do not follow a macrobiotic diet, the fish dishes here are a delicious and more mainstream option.
Inaka has been serving their Japanese macrobiotic fare for over 30 years. If you are not familiar with the macrobiotic diet, which is based on whole food and whole grains, you may find the food here a little bland. The umeboshi side dish (Japanese salted plums) can help to spice things up. On the other hand, if you do follow a macrobiotic diet this place is the motherlode. You get the feeling that a lot of the diners here stop by once or twice a week for this healthy, conscious food.
