Respond to Review of CLOSED: Sofa Vegetarian Cafe
Review: The directions in the other review were spot on. Easy to find a super convenient to Shibuya station. The interior is quaint with seating on 2F+3F. Wine selection is abundant but I sadly did not partake this time round. One MAJOR thing to note is that the menu is ONLY in Japanese and is impossible to figure out if you do not read it. I took the advice from the former review and tried the lasagna...and died and went to heaven. Its part of the 'O' menu, so there are no onions or garlic in it. I was doubtful a tasty lasagna could be made without those items, but was pleasantly surprised to have my taste buds tingled by the finished product. The marinera sauce contains soymeat, which is a healthy and filling bonus. I was able to ask our waitress about some hot dishes and found they have gobo fritters, wedge French fries with rosemary and deep fried mock ham roll-ups. I took a bet on the fake ham...and was shocked and delighted by their taste and appearance. The siso leaf rolled in the middle of each piece gave them a very unique and yummy taste. The lasagna was Y1200, and the roll-ups were Y580. Not bad prices for Shibiuya. I will definitely go here again, but make sure I bring a Japanese reader along to translate all the other tasty things that must be on their menu.
