Try shabu-shabu without the meat at this veggie-centric restaurant located inside Ueno's Sakura Terrace. Using produce sourced directly from farmers across the country, Yasai-ya serves up fresh veg that tastes just as good when boiled in a savoury hot pot as it does with their homemade bagna càuda sauce. If you're in the mood for a chat, sit around the central counter, watch your food prepared and listed to the chefs discuss the finer details of ingredients and preparation methods. Full veggie courses at dinner start from around ¥4,000.
