Myogaya

A small quiet place with seating for about 10. Run by a very friendly elderly woman. We had lunch - the menu was set with two choices both were tasty. Our Japanese is poor, but the owner cheerfully assisted us.

I was worried about my trip to Takayama in November 2011, as i was unsure of finding vegetarian options. As soon as I arrived, I visited Myogaya and they had just finished breakfast, so were only open for tea. I popped back at 12pm and was in for a treat. The elderly owner speaks very little English, but her nephew was waiting for lunch there too and had studies in Australia and the UK, so we were able to translate! It was such a friendly spot, meeting a tea ceremony instructor from Kyoto there also. We all chatted (with translation) whilst the lunch sets were made. I was asked if I was ok with gluten and wheat. I am fine with this, but perhaps there is a gluten free option available? I ordered the lunch set and had free green tea and a plate of yummy things, including marinated tofu, pickles, seaweed, squash and a sauce, curried cauliflower, cabbage and radish salad and a deep fried panko coated fu. It was all delicious, and although it didn't look like much, it filled me up. The service was quite slow, but only because I arrived as soon as it opened and had to get a bus for a trip. It was lovely there waiting, though. I stayed at J Hopper's Hostel, and it was a 5 minute walk around the corner. It was closed on the second day of my trip, so do check the opening times and days first!

Pros: Lovely atmosphere, Great location, Yummy food!
Cons: Small portions (ok for some), Very little English, Short opening times

    I forgot to say, as well as the plate of goodies, i got a bowl of brown rice. You could choose your grain (although I can't remember the options!) and I think I had some miso too

I really enjoyed eating here. Myogaya is now completely vegan. The korokke was so delicious.
