Beach Muffin is one of those tiny little funky spots that you'll find in the Kamakura/Zushi area. They are a Vegan cafe, which is quite unusual. Also, on the weekends they have 4 taps of Yorocco Beer available, a local Zushi microbrewery. I was going to meet a friend there to sample the brews and was happy to try some food as well, though not as much I wanted (so I'll have to come back with some Vegan friends for a fuller review).
|Bean soup (be warned: here be celery!)|
The soup was probably quite good, but unfortunately contained lots of celery, so I didn't have more than a bite or two. My wife would have loved it I'm sure. The potatoes were indeed excellent, coming in a large amount, nice firm wedges, and covered in a lot of satisfyingly chewy batter that reminded me of cheese (but it wasn't!).
|Great fried potatoes|
Apparently the house is really old and used to be a tofu store, so meat has never entered the kitchen...thus the vegan theme. I met the proprietor as he was running off to perform a wedding (a common side job for gaijin here), and he was quite an interesting guy who I hope to chat more with in the future.
Anyway, I'm giving this place a Very Good rating based on the fries, and hope to try more of their food next time I visit.
