Dear sister and brother
Sist Zoe, Malaysian who visited Fukuoka last time, gave an advice… when traveling in non Muslim Countries and hard to find halal food, macrobiotic foods could be a great option.
Luckily in Fukuoka, since September last year there’s a very nice macrobiotic food stall, I shortly call it “Deli Vegan”. Located in several places including Kitte Hakata, Nishitetsu Tenjin Station, Iwataya, etc.
Macrobiotic is a “meatless”, “vegetarian”, or “vegan” meal. Japanese more likely to understand the term “macrobi”, which refers to a Macrobiotic diet. This diet ideas drawn from Zen Buddhism.
The major principles of a macrobiotic diet are to reduce animal products, eat locally grown foods that are in season, and consume meals in moderation.
While there are rumors that this type of “clean eating” can help rid the body of diseases, it has not been scientifically proven. It is said that during the Edo Period (1600-1800) in Japan, peasants were not allowed to eat meat and had a diet based on staples of rice and soybeans.
The modern macrobiotic eaters are spoiled with the good taste and various of microbiotic foods and beverages product.
We’ve tried the Deli’s rice box with deep fried vegan oyster, it’s yumm!
The bread with red bean and green tea whipped cream inside, also taste good!
