Came here looking good shabu shabu beef and pork but left underwhelmed. The quality of the beef and pork is excellent but everything is far more expensive than it should be. The soup was also water based instead of dashi stock. One person was almost $40USD.I ate at another restaurant just around the corner and had far better shabu shabu pork at almost a third of the price.

It's a typical Food Court on top of one of Kagoshima's famous Yamakataya Department store. You can shop til you drop and have casual dining here before you head out or just taking a break before hitting the shopping again. Best known for their "katayakisoba" stir fried noodles, but i like mine in soup, so i'll order the "champon", soup noodles with a variety of meat and vegetables, kind of like a bowl of ramen.

On the drive to Ibusuki, we wanted a rest stop, and by chance we found this restaurant. The food and coffee were very good. I enjoyed the seafood side order, cooked in garlic oil, and Apple pie - so yummy. The view of Sakurajima was something to die for. The staff were exceedingly friendly. It wasn't crowded at all but it was a Tuesday, not quite lunch time when we came.

Really healthy meals are the hallmark of this Cafe - all made with locally grown vegetables, as well as fish and meat options. You can tell that the veggies were grown in good soil, because their flavors are deep. We went to the Farmers Table three times, and it was our restaurant of choice during our time there. The MSG in Japanese food often affects my sleep, but we slept very deeply after our meals here, and I felt quite nourished and restored the next day. The only problem is that it is small and only sits 16 people, and there are often lines at lunch time. We found it easier to get seats in the evening. If you do have to wait, you can go through the tiny door in the back into the neighboring bookstore and check out the books while you wait. They only have one table for 4 people, although you can also sit at the table that runs along the window and fit 4 people there.The set lunch/dinner has many delights. When we were there they had green bitter melon salad with shisso leaves, a salad made of sweet potato (a local specialty) with a tiny bit of egg, a small bowl of stewed root vegetables with a tiny carrot on the top, miso soup that was full of greens and other vegetables, some fried eggplant, a bit of something that seemed like quiche, and an interesting bowl of two kinds of rice, which had their own delicious home grown flavor. Another meal we had included their "hot salad," which was an excellent sort of vegetable stir-fry, and we also tried their Korean stone rice bowl, which had perfectly crispy rice with vegetables. I would definitely eat that meal again!I would recommend this restaurant as the best we visited in Kagoshima. It is located one block away from the big Yamakataya Department Store, which is a great place to go for shopping, so the location is extremely convenient, across the street from the Airport Bus stop near City Hall. Their sign is small - but they are on the corner, so it is easy to find. They are also right next door to the Fuku-re Bakery, so if the tomato-basil gelato which comes with the set isn't enough, you can run upstairs to the Bakery and get some volcano cookies or vegetable muffins! But I don't think you will be hungry... the Farmer's Table has ample portions that are very nourishing and satisfying.
