small&nice - Edit

the owner explained us the vegetarian menu in english because we didn't understand all the kanji so don't be afraid if you don't speak or read japanese :) the food was 100% self made, arrived fast, tasted great and fresh, you could feel it was homemade with experience :) the only negative aspects for us were the kinda small portions so you have to spend more money if you're hungry.

Pros: big choice of various foods, perfect taste

Cons: a bit pricey but still at an understandable rate

quaint veg-friendly in Yokohama - Edit

when I walked in I was greeted by the word "vegetarian?", as a man gestured to a table. This place is really quaint and appears to be a slightly modified downstairs kitchen of a family home. Not sure why he assumed I was looking for vegetarian but this is the ONLY place in Yokohama that seemed to cater to anything of the sort so it was a nice welcome for me. I had the sesame noodles which were basically flat rice (?) noodles covered in bean sprouts, poke roots, and other greens. This was simmered in a sesame paste/peanut sauce (I think). In any case, there was an entire page of "vegetarian" options on the menu, although no English translations. I went with the noodles since it was my first time and that's what the proprietor recommended. If you are in Yokohama and don't want to get on the train to search out other vegan/veg places in and around Tokyo then this is a good place. Plus its got great character. Its on one of the backstreets of China Town and directly adjacent to some sort of temple. So if you don't get caught in a thunderstorm without an umbrella, as I did, then it would be perfect for a moderately priced meal, a visit to the temple (I didn't go in cause it seemed there was an entrance fee but not sure) and an evening stroll through the steam-filled streets of Yokohama's China Town.

Pros: vegetarian, quaint

Cons: no english menu
