Respond to Review of Senjo Handmade Gyoza Shop
Review: I found this place on http://www.vege-navi.jp, a website for veg/vegan/veg-friendly restaurants in Japan. The shop the only place that serves veg food in a predominantly Chinese neighborhood. The sign is in Japanese only: 篠線手打餃子専門店. Look for a very small shop with only a few tables and many pictures on the wall. I have visited there for lunch and dinner. 2 lunch sets are available: 1 for 750 yen and another for 1000. I had the 750 yen one and portions were sufficient. It included 6, large handmade vegetarian gyoza dumplings, soup, pickles, and main dish of sweet and sour "pork" made with fake meat. The owner said the dumpling sauce is homemade with Chinese medicinal herbs and had a cinnamon-like spice to it, which I loved. For dinner, they have vegetarian a la carte items or you can request a course which starts from 1800 yen. Tell the owner what you like and she'll prepare things to your liking. All in all, the food was very good and lovingly made-to-order not to mention the cheapest veg meal I've found so far in Tokyo. I'll definitely be back. They serve over 30 types of dumplings, some of which appear to contain only plant ingredients, but I only had 1 type so I can't confirm. The food in general does not appear to contain egg or dairy items so it *may* be suitable for vegans but you would have to confirm this with the owner.
