Daito’s chefs are West Campus’s scholars of Japanese cuisine. From Osaka, they believe in propagating authentic Japanese “Waashoku,” or simple, healthy, and rich dishes, like the beloved curry udon and piping hot stewed pork belly. Daito also cooks up appetizers, imported and local sashimi, donburi, and a wide selection of homemade udon noodles, made with dough that’s been aged for 48 hours. Like the ingredients in its dishes, the restaurant’s interior is simple and elegant, with series of Japanese watercolor paintings adorning the walls and scattered shoji screens.
