Gibier – I first heard this word last year when I saw a TV show featuring chefs serve meat at their restaurant that they hunted themselves. Then today, it happens that I saw this word again in the menu of the cafe (Okayama Garden Cafe) that we dropped in for lunch. It’s something unusual, so we decided to give it a try.
By the way, Okayama Garden Cafe is located right next to horse-riding school that I had my first horse-riding experience few years ago.
This cafe serves deer sausage in bun, which happens to be a Mimasaka gibier. Mimasaka is a place in northern Okayama Prefecture. It’s just interesting to know that there are places in Okayama City that serves gibier.
Inside Okayama Garden Cafe
Inside the cafe, there’s a section of goods for sale like Bizen wares, accessories, local food products, etc.
〒709-0604 Okayama-ken, Okayama-shi, Higashi-ku, Terayama, 147−1
Aside from the cafe, there is restaurant on the second floor in the building. This restaurant mainly serves food from Setouchi. They also have BBQ-set menu with Mimasaka gibier, boar or deer.
Have you tried any gibier? How was it? We’d like to hear your experience and your thoughts about it.
Thanks for reading!
