Postscript: I took a whimsical approach with this post simply because the name itself “mina no ie” sounded so cartoon-like. To sum it up, Fakegf and I enjoyed our brunch here. Gentle, meaningful, and light flavours created with beautifully thought-out ingredients, meticulously prepared with loving hands. We left with a smile and the traditional Japanese sense of being 80% full.
