Homely Cafe in a Lush Green Space
Iwane Goes Nature is tucked away inside a homely space in Asoke neighbourhood. This cozy little cafe is adjacent to a Japanese restaurant called Sharaku by the same owner, which serves a more traditional Japanese fare.
The lush outdoor patio space is filled with leafy plants and you can spot a few resident furry feline casually loitering around. While the interior is just as inviting and is enclosed by glass panel windows overlooking the surrounding green space. Chairs and tables are made from big chunky piece of wood which gives it a cozy homely feel.
Brunch with Japanese Twist
Iwane Goes Nature is popular with young family and local Japanese residence. So it does not come as a surprise that the menu here has a strong Japanese influence. For the health conscious amongst us, healthy dishes like avocado tofu salad served with Japanese sesame dressing are available. And for those who are not counting every single calories they intake (like us), we highly recommend their fluffy pancakes which are the real star here. Marron Five Cake (served with chestnuts) and Ricotta Pancake (served with berries compote) come highly recommended.
Fluffy Pancake here is a Must
The hearty Farmer’s Breakfast Set where potatoes, bacon and eggs are served up on a hot skillet pan. Some Japanese option include Katsu Curry on rice and there is an Asian fusion dish like Tom Yum flavoured pasta. Overall we felt that the food was well priced and the quality was satisfactory. However it is their pancake that is the real star here.
