さるぅ屋 is a cafe/bar/diner in a lovely old renovated machiya on Imadegawa. The food menu concentrates on burgers (between ￥850-￥1000), sandwiches (￥800-￥850) and curries (￥800) and is generally pretty meaty. As I don’t do the meat thing, I settled for an advocado and cottage cheese sandwich, expecting something bland and was surprised by its sweet deliciosity. And the bread! That was something else. I finished off with chocolate cake and ice-cream for ￥780. Smashing. Below are some pictures and you can see some pictures of the renovation process up here.
On the drinks menu, a cup of coffee will set you back ￥450, and they also have a full range of Yogi teas (￥550-￥600)and fruit smoothies (￥650-￥700). As well as wine, cocktails and shochu, the bar also has Premium Malts on draft (￥800) and also some Mexican and Belgian beers. Salut Ya is super easy to get to from the keihan Demachiyanagi station. Take the number two exit and go east from the Family Mart on the corner of Imadegawa/Kawabata and Salut Ya is right there on your right. Here is a handy map.
Opening hours: 11:30~24:00
On the way out I asked where they got their delicious bread from.
“レ・フレール・ムトウ”, she said.
And I said: “What?”
