Tofu Ryori Sorano is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant in Tokyo, specialising in – you guessed it – tofu. It’s a tiny, traditional Japanese place where my tall Hungarian head kept butting the rafters. But that’s all part of the fun.
It’s not the kind of place you stroll past by accident. And the door is unassuming – literally just a white curtain with Japanese writing on it. But this was one of my favourite Tokyo dining experiences and definitely worth tracking down.
In the Shibuya District. Ten minutes’ walk from Tokyo’s epicentre and that world-famous, crazy-busy road crossing.
Tofu Ryori Sorano sits right next to the train tracks on (there’s no getting away from it) a dodgy looking road. But remember that Tokyo is the safest place on earth and this area is just a little industrial. So don’t be put off walking down and discovering this hidden gem.
A traditional Japanese dining experience. And more tofu than you can shake a stick at.
