9月11日『Vivify』で6人揃って夕飯しました。マウント・シャスタ市にあるマクロビ・オーガニックの日本食カフェレストランです。7月半ばからロサンゼルス界隈でＥメールとミクシーで話題の『5年ものマクロビ梅干』を販売・発送してくださっているアヤコさんがオーナーシェフです。 (ビーガン丼 /Vegan Bowl $15) "Vivify Organic Cafe": All six of us had a dinner there on September 11, 2010. It's a Macrobiotic Organic Japanese Cafe Restaurant in Mount Shasta City. From mid July, 2010, "Macrobiotic Umeboshi Pickled Plums aged 5 years" are circulating and selling like hotcakes through emails in Greater Los Angeles. The owner chef, Ayako, has been volunteering to sell that hot item, "Macrobiotic Umeboshi Picked Plums aged 5 years".

The most popular items are this "Vegan Plate" and "Vegan Bowel", the first photo at this restaurant. My friend B and I ordered this. It comes with Brown Rice or Vivify Rice and Miso Soup using a home-made organic Miso paste. The plate had Broccoli, Daikon Radish, Japanese Pumpkin, Tofu and Carrot made Patti, Gobo Roots, Celery, Potato, Mushrooms. It was healthy and gentle seasoning for body.
Soy Sauce Ramen Noodle Soup with Wakame and Nori Seaweed, Carrot, Green Onion, Bamboo Shoots, and Roasted Pork. Two of us ordered this. It was strange that we could eat Ramen Noodle while over-looking Mount Shasta.........
