Hidden among the cool restaurants of Shibuya Parco’s Chaos Kitchen, this shitamachi (downtown) izakaya-style restaurant serves only vegan dishes. The main dish is the mock karaage made with soy meat instead of chicken, which comes in five different flavours including grated radish, Chinese black vinegar, Sichuan style hot and spicy, sweet and sour, and teriyaki mayonnaise. The outer coating of the tapioca flour gives the chicken an extra crunch while the inside is tender and juicy. The gyoza is also a popular item, filled with minced veggies and soy meat. You can order each separately but we recommend the teishoku (set meal) which comes with a bowl of rice, soup, and pickled mustard greens for about ¥1,00.
Chinese-inspired side dishes – which start at ¥400 – include the nikumiso moyashi (miso-flavoured ground ‘meat’ over sprouts), kyuuri no namashoga (cucumber marinated in oil and ginger), spring rolls and many more.
