I always look at vegetarian/vegan restaurants with a mixture of suspicion and caution, and inevitably, the question I ask myself is: "Would this meal have been improved with meat?"
And for Itadaki Zen? Absolutely not. The food here is so fresh and full of flavour that meat would completely spoil the experience, as they bring out dish after dish of pickled vegetables or tempura.
If I can describe Itadaki Zen in three words, it would be 'Good wholesome food'. This restaurant has a minimalistic zen feel to it as the name indicates. It isn't much expensive either, you can get a complete bento box for £10 or so. To top it, they have some great variety of teas and wines. The service is prompt and fast. The food is delicious and has a feel of Buddhist cuisine to it...more
My boyfriend too me here for a special anniversary meal. As I'm a veggie this vegan restaurant was very exciting! We ordered from the selection of set meals! They brought us little tasty starter plates, followed by some sushi and then our main dishes. I had the tempura menu. The ingredients were very fresh and tasty! One of my favourite things was the sushi. It was simple but lovely!...more
This place has been on my list for freaking forever! I came here with some of my girls and we had fun sampling lots of little bits. The menu is confusing with lots of incredible-sounding and complicated items so in the end, to accommodate the coeliac, we went with the gluten-free noodles which were made from sweet potato and so uber-delicious that we ended up getting another portion!
Japanese vegan. When I heard these two words, I prepared myself for the worst. I thought that most of the affair would be oily veggie tempura and some soy chunks. And man I was proved wrong. The food was beyond my wildest expectations. It did not seem like a compromise in any way. It was actually good Japanese food. That it was also vegan, was an added bonus.
We started with the sushi set....more
