First Review by MaryC

Great vegan menu- rare in Japan - Edit

Traditional Japanese restaurants tend to be full of meat these days. Shibata has a full vegan menu if you ask for it, and will veganise dishes off the main menu (replace dashi with vegetable stock for example). I’ve eaten there 3x so far along with family members who are not vegan. I’ve had daikon radish salad, fried tofu, udon noodle soup with tempura vegetables, other family members have had bean curry with rice (it’s vegan) - and there are lots of vegan dishes I haven’t tried yet. Not much English spoken, but the manager understand “vegetarian” and “no meat” - and how to alter any menu items to be vegan. Book early as it gets full up each night.

Pros: Understand how to make s meal vegan. , Inexpensive , Close to everything

Cons: Popular- book early. , Japanese wait staff sometimes misunderstand orders
