Really tasty ramen in hub - Edit

This ramen is a great and convenient find. It has a good amount of vegetables and the broth is particularly tasty. They're the only restaurant that has put avocado in their ramen, which was a surprising but welcome addition! Very affordable meal and easy to access in the hub of Umeda. Very highly recommend for a great ramen!

Pros: Very tasty ramen, Quick and fast service, Affordable

Cheap and tasty - Edit

English menu available, order from the machine and the waitress will take your order slips (just be sure to specify veggie gyoza as it is all one button!)

Good food for the area - Edit

If you're stuck for vegan food this place is a good option. Handy to know it's a chain too. The ramen tasted like a place that does chain store ramen, but that's kind of what you expected anyway. Dumplings are just ok, but you got your food from a robot so that's pretty cool right?

Good option when you're stuck - Edit

This place is a chain and is great to have as a back up when you can't find vegan and vege places.

The ramen was really yummy and it was fun to order via ticket machine. There are a variety of pickles and sesame seeds etc on the side so you can pimp your meal.

It was cheap too!

Pros: cheap and available

Cons: serves meat

Vege ramen was sooooo good - Edit

Living in Japan is a constant search for good Japanese dishes that are 100% vegetarian (no secret bacon), I am delighted that Chabuton offer a vegetarian option, it is absolutely delicious, warming, comforting and full of flavor. A real mix of veg from tomato to ocra, it even has avocado in. You'll be thinking 'f*** this is good!* with every mouthful. Big flavor, big portion and cheap price. I also got the vege gyoza and they were delicious too!

Pros: Delicious , Cheap

Vegan ramen - Edit

Cute place in the 8th floor of a shopping center. Only 2 vegan options but SOO good. The only other time I've had fresh vegan ramen was in San Fran and it was not flavorful. This ramen was the opposite, perfect seasoning and flavor, so many different veggies, tomatoes, avocado, lotus, greens. Cool to be able to use the "vending machine" ticket method that a lot of ramen places use in Japan. Staff was very friendly.

Pros: Amazing flavor, Unique

Cons: In the top of busy shopping center

tasty, convenient - Edit

Only 2 vegan menu items, but both are delicious. Buy a ticket for the "limited edition" veggie ramen (which has been on the menu for years) and buy a generic gyoza ticket and specify veggie when handing to the staff. No break between lunch and dinner service, so great if you are passing through on some weird travel schedule. The chef behind this chain is the first person ever to earn a Michelin star for ramen. Fun to get proper vegan ramen at a "normal" restaurant.

Vege ramen in Umeda! - Edit

I am so concerned of the fact that, in JR OSAKA station, obviously the busiest station in Osaka, has NO vegan or vegetarian restaurants (sob) so your bet is coming to this huge Yotsubashi Camera building (in front of JR Osaka station- connected underground) go up to the 8th floor for this amazingly delicious vege ramen! Otherwise Kunanjai(?) Thai restaurant at Breeze Breeze 5th floor is also good but this acha button opens almost all the daytime and night time too!

No long with vegetarian options - Edit

Edit: They discontinued the vegetarian items, so no longer worth visiting

If you are near Umeda Station, this is a good place to try a couple of traditional Japanese foods done vegan style. Paid 1190 yen for the ramen and a beer while my daughter had the veggie gyoza and an orange soda for 450 yen. Kind of fun ordering from the machine as well.

Pros: location, price , filling

Not Many Options - Edit

Vegetables ramen contain fish stock cannot be replaced sadly, for vegetables dumpling will be the only option other than rice lol, fair enough for Japanese style restaurant I suppose.

Negotiation required - Edit

I went there expecting to be able to order the vege ramen and say "no fish broth". When I did so, they kind of looked at me strangely and one of the kitchen staff came out to talk to me. He said that the fish stock came in the broth, and it couldn't be made without it and offered to give me my money back. When I pointed out that the menu said "vegetable only" (I was hungry at this stage), he disappeared for a minute and when he returned he said it was okay and directed me to sit down.

The food itself was okay, but not fantastic, and while not expensive, it was not especially cheap either. Would not recommend unless something changes.

Only the gyoza are veggie! Sauce & ramen are not! - Edit

The sauce that comes with the vegan gyoza is not veggie! I asked and there was fish in it. The gyoza themselves are delicious enough without the sauce though!

There's fish in the ramen broth, and when I asked (in Japanese, so they definitely understood) they told me they could not make it without the fish broth.

not vegan - Edit

Double checked this today, and the vege-ramen is not vegan friendly. It doesn't contain any actual chunks of meat, but it is made with fish stock. Staff were very nice, but we canceled our order.

Chabuton - Edit

Spirulina ramen and gyoza. I remember the ticket ordering machine only took 1000¥ notes and most coins. I went their after arriving from the. airport ,with my luggage .the staff look after the luggage putting in the store room. Enjoy the ramen but the soup did not taste vegan. I notice the the chabuton in Hong Kong has a Michelin star according to the promotions on the ramen bar. The ramen is promoted as 100% Vegan and easy to find on the ordering machine.

Pros: Nice and light meal , Open late , Inexpensive

Cons: Soup did not seem vegan. , The cook can easily cross contaminate , Must have small notes 1000¥
