Definitely check out this restaurant - Edit

Stumbled upon this restaurant close to the end of lunch time service. The owner/cook/bartender was happy to serve us.

Food was incredible, had 3 dishes with my family and all 3 blew us away.

Pros: Incredible vegan food

Funky and delicious - Edit

I arrived at Natural Food Village a bit early for dinner and the place was empty, which meant I got the benefit of the full attention of the one friendly young man who was on duty.

I chose one of the dinner set menus and found all seven items to be quite tasty. The small vegan cake afterward was a little on the dry side, which made it well paired with the cacao shake.

The atmosphere is cozy and funky, a sort-of backpackers-who've-been-to-India vibe. Prices are lower than many other Kyoto veg places, and especially good in light of the quality. (Cash only.)

Recommended. Enjoy!

A must visit! - Edit

Hidden away in the north east of kyoto, on the sneaky second floor of otherwise uninteresting apartment buildings. The place inside is like a stone cavern, all decorated with awesome memarobilia giving it such a cosy, chill feel. It feels like a getaway to a different land. The food was delicious and plenty and the shakes were creamy and satisfying.

Vegan bar that opens until midnight, relaxing and unique vibe, delicious food and drinks - Edit

Natural Food Village is another one of my favorite little hideouts to relax and have a great time in Kyoto. It is probably the only vegan place in Kyoto that opens until late at night so this is always an option when all the other places are closed. I love the dimly lit space and quirky decor which is a good place to get away from your usual routine. The food and drinks are flavorful and comforting; I especially love the katsudon with a sweet and sour sauce that's so good. The tempeh chips, chijimi , rum chai and fruity beers are also delicious. The owner is the only person running the place so you might have to wait for a bit but he is the most calm and relaxed person I've met. It's almost surreal to see how zen he is when he works. Highly recommend.

Fantastic - Edit

This is such an amazing place to eat, do not miss on it! The chef has incredible skills with texture of the food and presentation. The fried tofu nearly scared us because we thought it was meat... Incredible and delicious, give it a try!

Pros: Vegan only
