Pariya is a nice delicatessen in Kita-Aoyama/omotesando. If you’re feeling like you need a well-balanced meal with veggies and healthy options, this is a great choice. They have a wide variety of options to choose from + it includes miso soup and any drink from their self-service drink bar section which has all sorts of options (such as Hot/Cold coffee, tea, soda, etc.). And guess what? It’s also all you can drink which is quite rare in Japan.
I had such a hard time deciding on my main dish and salad options since everything looked so good. I got “this week’s rice” so my combo came out to 1050yen and I have to say everything was pretty good. The portions are a little small but I noticed that you can get more rice if you’re still hungry so you could do that or add another dish for 300yen more. They change their menu every week so you won’t get tired coming back here either (check their websites for the weekly menu).
This cafe is located in a nice area so you can enjoy some shopping afterwards too. In fact, the 2nd floor of this cafe is also a store.

Located near the entrance to Ebisu Garden Place is an organic deli called Grano Delicatessen which opened in September of 2011. They have many healthy choices to choose from and we had the dinner plate which includes two selections of your choice from the deli window case + main dish + brown rice or bread for 1300yen. For the main dish you can select a protein such as fish or meat, but this is also a great place for vegetarians as well. Since there’s not many vegetarian options in Japan, this is definitely a good option for those who are looking for good veggies. It’s an affordable and healthy choice despite its high-end Ebisu Garden Place location.
I really like their Honey Pumpkin Gorgonzola salad and their ginger lemonade hot tea. Not a huge fan of their desserts though. I’ve tried three different desserts so far but they were all just OK.
