Amazing place!

Amazing place for vegans and non-vegans alike. The owner is vegan and very friendly, she really knows her stuff! The clientele is a mix and the atmosphere is brilliant. The food is delicious and the experience authentic to Tokyo!

Best Campus Meal

Located right across from Waseda station's entrance, this is the perfect place for university students to grab lunch. The owners are so friendly and will be happy to talk with you or recomend you something. There is an extensive vegan menu, though I usually get the sweet and sour soy meat bowl which is delicious. The cuisine is Taiwanese, but there's Japanese influence as well. It's usually quite quiet inside (at least for lunch), so don't be alarmed if you show up and the lights are off or something. They open for lunch (10:30-2:30), then close and then open again for dinner (5:00-11:00).

Pros: Friendly staff, Good portions, Great menu variety

Okay

I got the vegan spicy hot pot, and thought it was just okay. Surprisingly bland.

Nice cozy place

(English follows Japanese)

ヴィーガンのものだけが載っているメニューがあります。いろいろ選べるのが嬉しいです。生姜の温素面を頼んでみましたが、とても美味しかったです。スタッフの方も優しくて、居心地がいいところでした。ランチにもディナーにもおすすめです。

There is a separate vegan menu, and they offer a lot of vegan options. I tried hot ginger noodles and it was very good. The staff is very friendly. Perfect place for both lunch and dinner. #Veganuary

Amazing vegan Taiwanese food

Came here with my family and we all ate vegan! So many options I will need to go back to try them all. My favorite were the vegan kare age and fried mochi in broth. The owner is wonderful and does a great job managing everything by herself!

Pros: Huge vegan menu , Delicious food, Friendly owner

Delicious Taiwanese Food

Had the sweet and sour soy meat Kara-age don. The portions are generous, and at a reasonable price too. The pomegranate vinegar drinks are a staple in Taiwan cuisine, and it’s a refreshing beverage to go with your meal. They’re very accommodating and they even asked me if I was fine with onion and garlic.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan menu, Take-out ok, Reasonable prices

Vegan Taiwanese noodles

Had a great rice bowl and soba set that was recommended. Delicious, filling, inexpensive lunch time choice. Has about a dozen vegan dish options and some sides.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Inexpensive , Does vegan without garlic and onion

Vegan friendly Taiwanese restaurant

The restaurant was easy to find. I went today for lunch after trying to go for dinner yesterday but finding that the hours didn’t match the ones on google. Despite this, the food was definitely worth coming back for.

Inside was pretty small but the seating arrangements made it not so cramped. There were clearly labelled vegan options on the menu and a vegan sign outside. The waitress was able to talk to me confidently about what options were vegan.

I had the 揚げ出し豆腐 lightly deep fried tofu and it was extremely delicious. The tofu was a lot more generous in portion size than other tofu meals I’ve eaten thus far, so it’s good if you’re monitoring your protein intake.

All in all I would recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be returning to try out some of the other options. It would be great for their evening opening hours to be less murky, however, so I’d recommend going for lunch.

Pros: Lots of clearly labelled vegan options, Easy to find, Free wifi

Cons: Unclear evening opening hours

Good vegan options in a cosy place

We chose one of their vegan options for take away. A bowl with rice, pickles, scrambled tofu and braised mushrooms. Very tasty and fulfilling. The owners were very kind. We recommend this place for dinner if you want to feel an authentic vibe.

Amazing flavours

I was really surprised by this place, the flavours of the vegan food here are incredible and really unique! Soy meat has Great depth of flavour. The vegan mushroom balls emulates meat texture a little too well lol. Great if you love Chinese flavour food. Also good for drinking in a cosy Izakaiya!

Pros: Amazing flavours, Not expensive, Ubereats okay

Cons: They sell animal flesh too
