New-Shojin Vegan Japanese Cuisine
MEDICINE features traditional Zen Buddhist food based on Shojin Cuisine in Kyoto, Japan. The food incorporates only 100% vegan, vegetable-based food using the freshest organic, sustainable ingredients. A modern touch has been added to this traditional cuisine that is based on the notion that food has historically been taken as "medicine" and the term "shojin" means "working to better oneself".
The cook staff also includes executive chef Bryan Waites who comes from a background of being the Sous Chef at Millennium, an organic gourmet vegan restaurant also in San Francisco.
Prices are more affordable than Millennium with appetizers and lunch sets ranging from $5-$10 and dinner appetizers and entree sets ranging from $5-18.
