Terrific views and food

I recommend the Cafe Tosca restaurant inside the Yokohama Bay Hotel. I've been twice and had the "Smart Vegan Curry Plate" course both times. It had a massive amount of food in it. I was starving when I went in and could barely finish.

All the vegan choices are good. I particularly enjoyed the fried soymeat. The vegan carrot jelly that comes with the "Smart Veggie Burger Plate" course is good too. In the "Smart Veggie Burger Plate" course, the soy meat cutlet burger has milk and egg and the marinated vegetables have milk.

You can request a copy of the paper allergen chart. It shows 31 allergens. It's in Japanese. Other than the soy meat cutlet burger and the marinated vegetables, none of the other options on the vegan/vegetarian page of the menu show any animal ingredients on the allergen chart.

The views of the ferris wheel are beautiful at night and it's well decorated with lovely palm trees. There was a live band once.

The most recent time I visited the restaurant was playing a video on loop of the ingredients they use, including meat, so be forewarned if you don't want to look at that sort of thing.

I'm not sure if they're still seating people in two waves on weekends or if you can be seated at any time.

Overall I recommend it for a lovely course meal (with no dress code even though it's in a hotel) or you can order the minestrone, power salad, fried soymeat, fried soymeat pasta, vegetarian burger, or moong dal curry individually without getting a course.

Worth a splurge

Cafe Tosca is a large buffet restaurant located inside the fancy Yokohama Tokyu Bay Hotel (closest station: Minato Mirai). The buffet definitely isn’t vegan friendly, but they offer a vegan course menu separately that we decided to try.

The vegan course consists of four courses: minestrone soup, salad with bagna cauda (veggies with dip, basically), curry with fried soy meat, and soy milk yogurt for dessert, with coffee.

At a little over 5000 yen per person, it’s not cheap, but I think it’s a pretty good value for the money. You could tell a lot of thought and care went into designing and preparing this meal, from the way the veggies are roasted and cut, to the harmony of the different flavors in each dish. I especially liked the turmeric rice that came with the curry— buttery and delicious.

The dining room was beautiful, with a nice view of Minato Mirai, and the service was impeccable. My only quibble was with the timing of the courses— soup and salad came out at the same time, followed soon after by the main course. I wasn’t even halfway done with those courses when the curry came. They only started offering this course in April, though, and it’s limited to 10 customers per day, so I guess they haven’t worked out all the kinks yet.

Overall, it was a lovely experience that I’d recommend.
