Tubo Cafe: Perfect Saturday lunch spot in Kanazawa

Met the girls for lunch today. Tammy is a veggie so they decided on a place they'd been to before & knew did great food. It didn't disappoint. The Tubo Cafe is another trendy hangout this time in the pedstrianised shopping area in Katamachi (main shopping district of Kanazawa). Go past the 100 yen shop on the left walking away from Mcdonalds and its there on the right.

Tubo does a lunchtime set menu costing 780 yen which includes miso soup (naturally), main dish and a drink. Bargain! The choices aren't massive, its tomato curry and rice (which looks and tastes a lot better than it sounds), mexican tortillas and rice (which I had. It comes with the token raw egg on top, not very Mexican but still lovely) and a ham sandwich and chips. Yes quite random choices but still good food.

Tubo is a deceptively spacious bar with a huge upstairs area (see picture) offering comfy sofas and free newspapers & mags if you fancy. I loved their style; wooden floor boards, exposed brick and soft lighting this is a great place for a lunch, a coffee, a few drinks with friends or just to oggle at the lovely barman!

Very cool, although everything I see in Kanazawa seems to be so nothing new there!
