【Vegan Diner】 Morpho Cafe 【Natto】

Hi! Welcome to Machi's Taxi Restaurant Guide.


I don't think it's easy to find good vegetarian restaurants in Kyoto.

So this time, I am going to introduce you to an informal diner-"Morpho Cafe", which specializes in vegan meals.


On my first visit, I ordered this.

"Avocado and Tomato-don (donburi) with Natto and Yam"-price 850JPY

It seems that they use brown rice for this meal. Since brown rice includes bran, it is healthier than white rice.

Natto (some people describe it as "sticky-stinky little beans") is fermented soy beans, and it's usually necessary to first acquire a taste for it. After that it is delicious!

When someone tries natto for the first time, he usually puts it into his mouth and, with a wry face, says "This is terrible!"


Japanese people usually add mustard and soy sauce, mix it up well, and put it onto white rice.

In my opinion, this is a very good dish for encouraging or challenging people to try natto for the first time.
Actually, from the Japanese point of view,  this is really tasty.



On the second visit, I had a "Veggie-Burger"-price 850JPY.

There are no big burger chains which serves veggie-burgers in Japan.

I think it is quite nice, although I have not experienced tasting any other veggie-burgers.


"Morpho cafe" is a 15 minutes walk away from Kyoto Imperial Palace.

If you show this picture to your taxi driver in Kyoto, he’ll have no trouble taking you to this restaurant.


Taxi fare will be:
1520JPY from Kyoto station
1120JPY from the Golden Temple
The above prices are just my approximate guess.
