Cat-themed vegan restaurant - Edit

Hiruneko Shokudou (ひるねこ食堂) literally means Cat Eatery. Stepping into Hiruneko Shokudou is an attractively unusual experience. Their decorations are unique and centered around cats, and every piece of furniture and fittings are special and one of its kind. Most of the furnishings are made of wood, and their design is different from one another. We ordered their vegan pizza and it was really good, esp the vegan cheese. The natto fried rice was excellent also. This is a pet friendly restaurant, and the owners are kind and animal lovers. You can read more about this restaurant in my blog here:

1st Vegan Pizza - Edit

I had learned about this restaurant a while back and finally got the chance to go here recently. I had their pizza(fully vegan), and a chocolate cake with strawberry cream(vegan & gluten-free). The pizza had a pleasantly surprising smell of melted cheese. It tasted pretty good, but was a bit messy; 7/10. However the highlight for me was the cake, it was wonderfully sweet (great for satisfying my sweet-tooth), the texture was perfectly soft, and not heavy at all; 9/10. Although the restaurant isn't located in a popular area, I would definitely recommend people to take the time to come here if they're ever in Fukuoka.

A must go - Edit

The food here is incredible, I would rate it 6/5 stars if I could. Definitely, DEFINITELY worth the visit. Such a beautiful, warm little eclectic restaurant that seats about 12-15 people. The burgers are to die for, their pizza is probably one of the best vegan pizzas I've had to date. The lovely owners are so kind and hospitable. We've gone two nights in a row so far and will continue going for the rest of our stay here in Fukuoka. Arigatou Gozaimasu ?? Love from Melbourne ❤️

Amazing Find - Edit

This restaurant cafe embodies everything I look for in a cafe.

There are only about 4 menu items, but I tried 3 of them and they were superb. I have no problem with a small menu if everything is as great as this.

Great Vegan Restaurant - Edit

This all-vegan restaurant is run by friendly, vegan owners who are clearly passionate about promoting veganism in Japan. It serves a delicious range of Western and fusion meals (and perhaps some Japanese?) in a charming little cafe with a cat theme (hence the name of the restaurant). Their pizza, with vegan cheese, is the best in Fukuoka.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, inexpensive, charming little cat-themed cafe
