Respond to Review of CLOSED: Mikouan
Review: We visited this little hidden away cafe after reading a number of reviews on veggie websites. Well worth checking the directions offered in other reviews as without them we never would have found this place. When we entered we thought we'd made a mistake and walked into some womans front room. There were three old men sitting at a bar while a woman behind it cooked and no one made any move to welcome to chase us away so we walked in and attempt to sit down. We were then herded to a different end of the bar and ignored for about 10 mins. It wasn't bad, just very odd as we felt we'd interrupted the other folk. None in our group of three speaks Japanese so we just had to wait until shown the menu that really only has two options - curry or the veggie platter plate. We all ordered the platter and got to watched it being put together. We all got miso soup [best I've ever had], and brown rice and then five different sides. Everything we had was super tasty but we felt like we couldn't really talk during the meal for fear of disrupting the other people. At 1000 yen a plate we felt it was very good value but if your looking for a nice evening meal were you can chat maybe not the best choice. The decor was really interesting. While we were eating another group of Westerners arrived in but they were chased out due to the cook being out of rice....it was all very odd.
