Shojin ryouri in Kamakura

Can anyone help me remember the name of a place in Kamakura (that I hope is still there)?

I used to eat at a shojin ryouri restaurant in Kamakura when I lived in Yokohama from 1999 to 2001. I am trying to remember the name so I can send a friend there who will be in Japan soon. The restaurant had 2 locations: one on the shotengai leading from Kamakura station. I belief it was on the right as you walked away from the station. The other was a bus ride from the station and was on a side street that led to a temple with a nice bamboo forest behind it.

I believe both were known for having very good goma dofu. I would always order shojin chirashi which seemed to be possibly their most popular thing. I also had ume soba there once which was great. It was very affordable - I think less than 2,000 yen for lunch sets.

Does anyone know who I am talking about? I know I'm not giving much to go on. Any help greatly appreciated!
