Prefectural vegan soba - Edit

Had a stop in Otaru and this was the only place that came up on HappyCow; a cute old fashioned so aha with separate smoking and non-smoking areas. I speak Japanese but they have an English menu and chart system for which dishes are vegan, vegetarian, wheat-free, etc. You can choose noodles made using pure Hokkaido buckwheat, or those blender with imported American. They have both hot and cold dishes.

Contrary to this page's main description, they didn't need advance notice for substitution; both just before and after the afternoon break they changed the fish stock broth to seaweed. They even asked me whether it was too light or strong. I was so pleased I went again on my way back.

Prices ranged from ¥550 (imported basic soba) to around ¥1300 for more complicated dishes (most of which aren't vegan). The bowls are big, but as a tall foreigner I could've done with some more noodles. Menu prices don't include tax!

Pros: Domestic Hokkaido buckwheat soba, Non-smoking seating, Friendly staff

Cons: Limited vegan options, Not the greatest value for portions
