vegetarian just back from tokyo and kyoto craving everything

Margaret Santa Monica | Oct 6, 2013 02:36 AM

yuzu ramen? Yuzu everything? with small wedges of japanese citrus that looked like limes but had a tangerine taste?

tempura shiso leaf?

soba with amazing veg

creative things done with tofu skin and tofu

where do I find it in LA?

Had show-stopping vegetarian set meals in Kyoto, at Kikunoi. Deserved all those three michelin stars.

Since then, have been looking for this level of experimentalism and flavor in US japanese food but feel frustrated.

Any advice? I live in Santa Monica. tis!
