I’ll (try to) spare the talk and get on with the pretty pictures!
Mr. Young Men
Kyoto (Teramachi & Shijo)
Osaka is the famous place to get this cuisine, but Mr Young Men is accomidating and has a ton of options. Just ask for no eggs, mayo, or katsuo-bushi (fish flakes).
Not pictured: Soy Mince & Chive Chijimi (korean ‘pancake’) and almond and chocolate poundcake for dessert. The almond poundcake was one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long time.
Nara National Museum cafe
Chinese style cafe
Chewy sweet and sour tvp on a bed of greens and chinese buns to pick it all up with!
Way over priced. I got a nice plate of food and my mom got almost nothing for the same price. Good, but not recommended.
Breaded chickpea drum sticks with bamboo. Also a side of aglio e olio.
Pumpkin cake with an orange glaze with crunchy pumpkin pellets and puffed rice to the side. Also a soy cappucchino.
Brown Rice Cafe & Deli
I’ve never been in the actual cafe, I love the deli too much. It’s my favorite place!
I got my usual veggie burger and a brown rice ratatoulle pocket (past post). And for dessert?
Chocolate Tofu Torte. MMMMMMM It was like mousse!
German, Vegan, Macrobiotic bakery
Right down the road from Brown Rice, this bakery gives out samples and has a great array of baked goods for us vegans!
I had an apple jam pie, coconut banana cake, and curry bread (curried veggies and rice baked inside pastry).
Pure Cafe, better known for its (now defunct store front) sister store Cafe Eight, is located in an Aveda. Sadly its website is lacking photos of this wonderfully place and its food. They have a small ever changing menu, as well as breakfast!
Vegetable Torte. Sauteed veggies on a lovely crust covered in a nutrtional yeast and tofu cheez sauce. MM!
Tiramisu. The end.
