Minamato bedeutet Wurzel. Mit unserem Konzept distanzieren wir uns vom Convenience-food und kochen Frisch, unverfälscht und im Einklang mit der Natur , eine cuisine du marché, die mit ausgefeilter Schnitttechnik, kurzen Garzeiten bis ganz roh der Natur ihren Respekt zollt. Gerade deshalb ist die japanische Küche leicht, bekömmlich, reich an Vitaminen, Proteinen und unzerstörten Fasern und Zellen.Minamoto begeistert die Gäste durch leckere japanische Gerichte, welche dem europäischen Geschmack entsprechen.
