Takayama soba - Edit

I dined at the main branch, which was conveniently open when several other options in town were not. There's a Happycow sticker on the sign out front and the waitress spoke a little English.

They have an English menu with, if I recall, three choices that don't use fish stock, but they are more elaborate and expensive options than the straight up soba, which I wanted. Through Japanese, I was able to get the normal zaru soba done vegan, but I can't say whether this would be possible using only English.

The soba itself was alright; much harder than most I've had, which may be a regional thing. It also wasn't the cheapest place I've been to. They provided a pamphlet for my friend on how to eat the noodles and drink the broth.

Pros: Vegan English speaker friendly, Open for late lunch

Cons: A bit pricey, May have smoking at times

Fantastic noodles - Edit

Fantastic food and super friendly service. They have a vegetarian section on their menu (they have an English menu which makes ordering easy). Some of the vegetarian dishes are already also vegan, one of them contain egg and is easily omitted.

They also provide you with English language instructions how to enjoy soba.

One of the best meals I had in Takayama.

One of the best meals of my Japan trip - Edit

We went here twice during our stay in Takayama. English menu with a clearly labeled vegetarian section is available. Some of the items include an egg topping which can be left out to make them vegan. Staff is very friendly and speaks some English. We tried the sweet potato and seaweed soba and the ginger and mushroom soba. Both tasted incredible! Highly recommended!
