Tasty curry! - Edit

Stopped by for lunch on a Friday afternoon at this cosy cafe run by a really friendly woman. The menu is mainly in Japanese but we asked her for the 'Vegetable Curry' and she understood immediately. At ¥800 it wasn't super filling but very tasty curry and comes with a side of salad and pickled veggies.

Nice curry nice atmosphere - Edit

We were happy to stumble upon this little restaurant as there aren't that many vegan options in this part of town.

FOOD:
Not your typical Japanese curry but not really Indian curry either - something else. The curry was quite spicy, which I like. You also get a decent portion of rice and the usual free water so your mouth won't be on fire or anything! ;) Lots of different vegetables on top of your curry and some pickles on the side (see picture).

They also have a sandwich with egg salad, so that one's not vegan but maybe vegetarian - please inquire. Other than that they have a salad which could be vegan but I forgot to ask so I don't know - please inquire. They have some vegetarian sweets (not vegan). I only know of 1 item on the menu that definitely contains meat (the meat curry).

SERVICE:
I like that it's a one person restaurant and the service was fast enough considering. It's nice to see your meal be made right in front of you.

ATMOSPHERE:
Cosy little place. 3~4 counter seats and Japanese seating in the back for about 4~6 I'd say.

TOTAL:
I'd give it 3.5 stars: minus one for the meat served and minus 0.5 for the limited options. But the options are limited for everyone because it's just a one person restaurant and they are trying to make it accessible for vegans so I'll give them the 0.5 back and that makes 4 stars in total!

Pros: Good curry, Cosy place

Cons: Also serves meat, Limited options
