Restaurant Reviews: Tsubu Tsubu Cafe

Our third stop in Tokyo was Tsubu Tsubu Cafe (-or- ( This is near Ushikagome Station on the Oeda Line. The map is a little hard to understand and we had to ask someone, but we found it. It's located in a neighborhood of mostly houses.

That morning we spent a little too much time at the Apple Store (getting my iPod fixed) and Urban Decay (getting vegan makeup) so we totally missed the lunch time and thus had very limited options that we could order.

There were only two things we could choose from, pizza on naan or a veggie burger. Since Sarah had the burger at Deva Deva she went with the pizza. I have no idea what that sauce was, but it was garlic yuminess.

Our Tokyo BFF and I ordered the veggie burger since we had pizzas at Deva Deva. It used a miso paste for the flavoring and some other things that I couldn't quite place.

The service was a bit lacking. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day, but the girl on the register seemed confused and overwhelmed even though they didn't appear to be busy. The power also went out right after we got there, which was kind of cool because the place makes it's own energy. The whole interior was beautiful as well. I'd like to come back here and actually catch the lunch time. Lunch is from 12 to 2:30 and then cafe time is until 4:30. Upstairs they have a small shop and an office. I think the restaurant is more of a side activity and they actually focus more on producing a vegan magazine of the same name and organizing various events and teaching classes.

It's not a great picture, but you can see the counters, for teaching classes (I presume) and the whole area lining the wall is planters.
