Tasty Vegan, macrobiotic , raw options

Posted on 10 / 08 / 2014

Location: in a small lane off Kitsubashi-dori , directly behind the parking lot of the Kyoto Tower hotel annex. The Kyoto Tower hotel annex is 2-3 mins walk from Kyoto main station, and the Post Office. At the corner of Shinmachi-dori , and Kitsubashi-dori , at the hotel, turn right and walk one half block past the parking lot . You'll see a sign for a shop/ building "Nadia," and a narrow alley entrance on the right. That is the lane for Salute restaurant , located in a wooden townhouse Machiya with a sign and menu board in front, right at the bend in the lane. (. In fact, when you are walking past the hotel parking lot, you can see the townhouse behind the lot 's back fence; you just have to go into the lane to get to it, past some other small houses.)

The map on this Happy Cow review page really helps!

Menu /Ambiance: organic groceries for sale at the entrance , table and tatami seating , view of the back garden. Lunch set or 2 or 3 other vegan meals, such as tofu quiche, or veg curry , approx 900 yen. Smoothies, teas, coffee, sweets, and dinner too. There's an English picture menu. Salute is Friendly and peaceful with Delicious food, quick service , moderate portions. The raw cocoa & cashew smoothie was delish, as was the lunch set.

We had some trouble finding it, and we're in a bit of a rush to catch a train, but enjoyed a fairly quick lunch here. English menu available. Flavors were a bit mature for my 5yo gaijin but not bad.

With photos and the directions on this site, we were able to find the house no problem. The lady working there was so sweet and welcoming. It is very small on the inside, so we were glad we had put our luggage in lockers! Much like most small restaurants in Japan. The menu had roughly 5 set options. My husband had the vegan curry set and I had the pita set. My set came with a green smoothie! Both were very tasty. We were still slightly hungry after, but as typical Americans we are usually hungry after every meal in Japan. ;) Part of that is due to starving for days with no where to eat. Kyoto is our haven for vegan and vegetarian food and we just added the Organic House Salute to our list of stops for Kyoto. There are a few organic goods you can purchase there in the restaurant.

Pros: convenience
Cons: Small

Hard to find, more than worth the effort. Basically an organic macrobiotic restaurant. Food 10/10 vibe 10/10. Wow!

Nice japanese-style vegan restaurant

Posted on 08 / 23 / 2014

The meal consists in a variety of small dishes served in traditional japanese style. The dishes are very tasty, and include a selection of raw desserts.

Price is low, and the location is very close to Kyoto Station, even though difficult to find.

Pros: Traditional japanese food, Ambient, very calm, Location
Cons: Difficult to find

comforting awesome veganness

This restaurant was a comfort and joy to me after spending a week not knowing how to find vegetarian cuisine in Tokyo. Organic House Salute is nestled in a tricky-to-find residential area, but the search was totally worth it. My family and I tried three of their main set meals- the curry, pita salad, and some sort of mixed plate set. It was delicious and hearty! we also had dessert- everything was lovely and vegan. The place was also very calm inside- it seemed like a traditional Japanese home turned into a restaurant. The vegan cheesecake with chocolate swirls was the best dessert (and Im vegetarian meaning I eat regular cheesecake- so that's saying a lot). Loved this place. I recommend it.

Pros: comforting, vegan in the middle of Japan
Cons: not so many options

The location is quite hard to find, but it's a really nice traditional japanese house. I had the special lunch set of the day and it was delicious! Fresh, raw, extra ordinary meal. The raw cake was great too. They have a huge selection of really tasty looking raw cakes. I loved it and definitely want to go there again.

Pros: not just vegan, some meals are even raw, wide range of sweets, inventive meals

The Organic House Salute is a small, out-of-the-way restaurant and store. We had a set meal at dinner. Nice variety of dishes. The price was reasonable.

Pros: Great set meals, Variety of seating (Japanese and western
Cons: Beer selection limited, Tricky to find
