Trendy and good

A nice restaurant with seated or floor tables (japanese style). Minimum order: 150 NTD and max
60 min. I visited during a work day, and it was not crowded but can definitely be otherwise. I am usually not the biggest fan of mocked meat, but their vegan chicken is very good with an interesting texture. Fried but not greasy at all and well-balanced by the chicken. A bit pricey but you pay for the decor. ( Service fees)

I’m glad there was an available table where six of us could sit down on a Saturday at lunch without a reservation. The place was bumping! The menu is bilingual and clearly indicates which food items are vegan, ovo, ovo-lacto, or contains allium. However, just because a dish contains allium doesn’t mean that it’s vegan by default: we had to order the pumpkin croquettes without mayonnaise to avoid consuming animal products. The desserts are also not clearly marked, but if you order them without condensed milk, you’re all set. (They didn’t seem willing to let us order the seasonal ices that usually come with cheese without the cheese, though.) I thought it was just a tad pricey for what it was, but I guess we were paying an Instagram tax. The staff were also cautious about letting us order the rainbow mixed fruit shaved ice without condensed milk because they were afraid it would lack flavor. But it turned out to be quite sweet. I’m not sure I’d order it again because of that.

You pay in cash only when you order at the counter, and you serve yourself water, utensils, and condiments. The staff does bring out your order, but you bus your own dishes after you’re done.

Pros: bilingual menu

Cons: a bit overpriced, not 100% clear about veg*n status of each item

Clean and well decorated restaurant. Don’t be fooled - there are no ramen on the menu! However, I had the kimchi which came with soya meat, rice and a broth. Pretty tasty and almost oil-free which I loved! Paid 119 Taiwan Dollars and was fully satisfied. Free drinking water. They even have an English menu, just ask for it😄Would go again if I were around, but not overly in love with the place.

Pros: Cheap, Healthy, Tasty

Cons: Serve egg and dairy, Staff is not overly friendly/helpful

Better menu would be nice

The food was nice, but the menu was not labelled, so I had to find an English-speaking server to figure out what is and isn't vegan. In the end I got mapo tofu (with breaded tofu subbed for non-breaded) and the macha shaved ice. The Maps tofu was nice but not as good as I've had it (vegan) several other places.

Pros: New veg option in area that recently lost 2 others, Do actually have vegan meals and desserts

Cons: Vegan options not marked on the menu. , There is not free Wi-Fi in the whole restaurant.

Great Japanese Food

The restaurant is crowded with students because of its decoration and location. If you like to try Japanese food and take beautiful pictures, this is the place you will fall in love with.

Pros: Nice Service, Great Atmosphere, Vegan Ice Cream Available

Cons: Expensive, Not Completely Vegan, Food is Okay
