Respond to Review of CLOSED: Cafe Eight
Review: Cafe Eight is not as conveniently located as its sister location, Pure Cafe, but way tastier, and has a bigger menu. It's more of a restaurant than Pure as well. We visited back in April 2008, but can't wait to get back to Tokyo to try it again. To start, we had deep fried tempeh with avocado that was absolutely fantastic, and my mouth is watering just thinking about it! We shared some roasted veggies and a natto bowl as well. And another starter than I can't remember, but I'm sure it was good. All together with the bottle of organic Greek wine and a beer, it came to 9.000, so definitely the most expensive place we went to in Tokyo, but well worth it. We also had a chocolate tart there that was really nice, and the spicy carrot cake. Chocolate tarts seem to be a standard in Tokyo vegan establishments (we had three during our 4-day trip), but I can't complain. This is a good place to go on a date or if you're just looking for some awesome vegan food. It was kind of hard to find, but this is one of my top veg restaurants in the world, so keep looking!
