■Carefully planned SHO‐TATSU style
Okara (soy pulp) from Ohama soybeans grown in Suzu, soybean gyoza (pot stickers), and hamburgers made from Noto soybeans and not a bit of meat are some of the varied and original dishes on offer using Noto and Ishikawa Prefecture ingredients. The different sauces, including dessert sauce, dressings and ponzu sauce, are also all handmade. The chef pays close attention to details such as the ingredients and cooking temperature when planning foods that can only be eaten at SHO-TATSU.
He doesn't cut corners on any dishes, but always serves the food in its top condition, so reservations are required for lunch and course dinners. A la carte dishes can be enjoyed at any time, without reservations. The modern building catches the eye in this neighborhood, and three types of seating are available - open-air tables seating, seating at the calm, relaxing counter, and seating at Japanese low tables with an opening underneath to stretch out your legs.

■Experiencing Noto's flavors the Italian way
This Italian restaurant was opened by the Noto-born chef, who fell in love with the ingredients of his home town. On Noto Peninsula, ingredients come from the sea and the mountain. Vegetables are flavored with the hard work of farmers and the seafood comes fresh from the treasure chests of the coastal waters off Nanao City and from the oceans all around Noto. This chef takes pride in drawing the fragrance and flavor from these ingredients, prepared simply but carefully.
Lunch consists mainly of pasta sets starting at 980 yen. If you would like a full-course meal, try the chef's suggested lunch at 2,800 yen. This includes an appetizer, pasta of the day, main dish, dessert and drink, for a meal that should fill anyone up. For dinner, full-course meals are available starting at a reasonable 2,000 yen, as well as a la carte dishes that include hand-kneaded pasta and seasonal vegetables. Wine made from Noto grapes is also available.
