Excellent veggie buffet
29 May 2012
This buffet was full of vegetably goodness! When we were there, there was one fish dish; the rest of the items (probably 2 dozen) were vegetarian. Note that there are both brown and white rice, both at the end of the buffet. Food was quite good overall- our favorites were the kabocha squash dishes, seaweed salad, and mushroom dishes- but there really was a huge variety to choose from. A bit pricey at about 2500 yen per person, though it certainly seemed reasonable given the high vegetable prices in the city.

Yummy gobo burgers
29 May 2012
Located just off of the Shinkyogoku shopping arcade, this is a hip cafe for vegetarian burgers and pizzas. We ended up ordering the evening's special set meal, a gobo (burdock root) burger, fries, salad, and homemade ginger ale. The gobo burger was quite tasty, and the salad was nice to get in a city with few salad options. There isn't an English menu, though the staff tried to be helpful in translating menu items and we tried to use our limited Japanese. The set was about 1200-1500 yen.
