Cha-ya

Vegan Japanese food finds a home on Valencia in the Mission and on Shattuck in Berkeley. At the cozy restaurant in the heart of the Mission, light and fresh meals make their way out to you in the hands of sweet and un-hipster elders keeping it simple. Veggie rolls, bowls of tofu curry and soba are carefully dotted with sauces, edamame and plenty of pea shoots. Expect a parade of colors that’s ultimately flavorful and filling without that dreaded food-coma feel.
