Enjoy bread and Mediterranean cuisine at Nishijin's hidden restaurant [RIFIFI STUDIO]

October 31, 2021 open

A hidden restaurant run by a French owner in a building that used to be a Nishijin textile factory, located in the back alley of Nishijin. The landmark is a wooden spoon sign. Inside the store, traces of the earthen walls and earthen floor where the loom was once installed have been deliberately left intact to preserve the atmosphere of the past. The owner, who trained at Bakery Marumo in Sendai for about a year and a half, produces hard, chewy bread.

RIFIFI STUDIO daily plate

Daily plate for 1,500 yen where you can enjoy Mediterranean cuisine, bread and soup as a set. On this day, there will be 7 different menu items on one plate, including couscous salad and beetroot hummus.

Takeout is also available, but we recommend the daily plate. The plate includes several types of Mediterranean cuisine, including baguette and cumin-scented focaccia, bread that goes well with the dish, and a soup that changes weekly.
