Nearly vegan restaurant in central Kyoto.
About the food:
Good food. Been there several times and had a tasty tofu-burger don (see picture) for 950 yen (L-size). Doria was very good, made with soy milk and coconut flakes to add some crustiness. Ramen is quite okay but doesn’t have a strong flavour - mostly tasted like coconut milk really - and sadly uses spaghetti instead of ramen noodles. Quiche was absolutely delicious but.. very tiny. Tofu cheese cake tasted really good but looked brown instead of white.
If you want to save some money:
If you order coffee with your food ask for the 200 yen discount and not the A-set (same coffee 40 yen more expensive).
Wednesday is ladies day with 10% off (it says ladies only but I went with my boyfriend and we both got the discount).
About the ingredients:
They do not use meat, eggs, milk or white sugar, but they do use fish stock and honey. However the non-veggie dishes are clearly marked. If there is a fish mark next to a set menu this means there is fish broth in the miso soup AND in the side dishes. The drinks with honey are called honey blablabla (soy-kinako-honey and ginger-honey) so that’s crystal clear as well. I must say I don’t really see the point in leaving out nearly but not completely everything that is not veggie.
There is an English menu.
I love the interior. Very cosy, but with lots of space.
