Kyoto, Japan 600-8032
A all-vegan, funky little restaurant-bar in downtown Kyoto.
Mikoan is a hole in the wall place with two women cooking up a Japanese vegan storm. Diners sit at a long bar facing the kitchen in this eclectic little space. Posters and art fill every possible space (ceiling too), and Jazz plays on the stereo.
Dinner items included sweet-potato croquettes, tofu spring rolls, miso soup, various salads, seaweed salads, and more.
They moved to a new location Nov. 2005, so make sure you don't go to the old location by mistake.

(Tricky but worth it.) From the intersection from Shijo-dori and Teramachi-dori, walk 1.5 blocks South. That intersection is the southern exit of the Teramachi covered arcade. You'll walk past the East side of the Fujii Daimaru Dept. Store on a relatively small street. Pass a bookstore on your right, then the Funahashiya candy store with some games outside on the street. Look for an alley-like entrance-way on your right with a hand-made sign saying "Vegetarian Restaurant & Bar." Go down the narrow alley between two buildings and straight ahead through the courtyard.
