Gorumando is available to design creative menus to fit any occasion for gatherings large and small. Our cooking philosophy is informed by the deep history of Japanese cuisine and, in particular, obanzai ryori, the traditional home cooking of Kyoto.
Obanzai uses fresh, local vegetables cooked and seasoned lightly to retain their natural flavors, supplemented with small portions of simply prepared meat and fish, rice, and pickles. Many of its hallmarks that were once done out of necessity—using seasonal ingredients, preserving foods through fermentation, and not wasting anything—we now recognize to be good for both ourselves and the environment.
In keeping with the tenets of obanzai, our first priority is wellness. That's why all of our food is seasonal, local, organic whenever possible, and 100% non-GMO.
