Vegan japanese curry - Edit

CoCo is one of the greatest chains in Japan. An Im happy to see that (finally) more and more can offer you the vego curry. This one had english menu and english speaking employees so even if you don’t speak japanese it’s easy to order, but as said before, be sure to ask for the “vegetarian curry menu”, because you can order the dishes with just vegetables and they’ll still give you a dish made with for example beef curry. Be sure to choose the right level of spiciness.

I love coco ichiban - Edit

I had the eggplant curry which is my coco favorite. It’s also possible to choose the size of the rice serving, I usually get 200g of rice since the curry portions are so big. I also recommend choosing the level of spice-ness if you like spicy food.

Ps. You choose rice size & spicy-ness from the regular menu :)

Japan wide restaurant chain - Edit

By far the largest Japanese Curry I've ever had. Don't order the veggie curry without specifying that you want the vegetarian sauce.

Cons: Not a substantial amount of veg. Mostly sauce, and

Simple - Edit

Went here on my day trip to Nara after I'd walked to 2mistletoes or something only to discover they were closed.

I think it is important to note that the vegetarian curries are on a separate menu, because I became a bit dishearted as I flipped through the 'normal' menu. I does state that is free of nuts, eggs etc but produced in a place where dairy is used. So if you are really allergic to diary or other it is not a solution.

They let you choose between seven different curries but I think the only different was the different veggies in it. You can also choose how much rice you want, I choose 300 grams which is the normal amount for them and it filled me up. Tasted nice but not some place I'm gonna miss not going to again. It's a fine solution if there is nothing else vegan in the area but don't let it be your first choice.

Pros: Good location , Fast and cheap, Good portions

Cons: Staff doesn't understand a word of English , Not for people with strong allergies, Vegetarian options hard to find in menu

Great curry and a lot of vegan options - Edit

I ordered the vegetarian curry with vegetables. It was a big plate, but fine by me. It tasted great and it is not expensive.
