Veggie Shokudo


I was in Tokyo for three months not too long ago, and would go to the veggie canteen you mention almost every wednesday, run by veggie-activists Yoyo-san and Yuka (I believe Seesaa is their blog provider, by the way. The cafe is known as Veggie Shokudo). On any other day of the week, the place it's a bar, but since it's closed on wednesdays it turns into Veggie Shokudo. The food is so fresh, cheap and amazing that we decided to do an interview with her. Here's the link for the downloadable pdf:

The Shiroto no Ran guys have a very interesting scene going on there, indeed. We're all rooting for the amateur revolution.

best,
julian.

Nice interview! I knew Yoyo very well in the 90s, when she was living in Paris.

Thanks! (And for the hyperlink, too!)
Wow, Yoyo really knows everyone. I don't know back then, but she has become an amazing vegan chef. Go say hi to her next time you visit Tokyo, and get one of those zapatista cakes for us!

Re: Veggie Shokudo

yoyo's is totally amazing! the Wednesday cafe was really the highlight of my trip to tokyo - great cheap dinner/cakes/coffee, and also being allowed to use their tiny venue/community centre across the road for a gig ... so inspiring. she also cooks a few days a week at Nagi Shokudo in shibuya.
