Cha Ya

A newly opened vegetarian Japanese restaurant on Valencia St between 18th and 19th. An offshoot or branch of a restaurant of the same name over in Berkeley. Appropriate to Berkeley, this one is right in with the buildings of the New College. A somewhat less prestigious seat of higher learning than UC Berkeley.

Food was quite tasty and portions were appropriately large. Sauces were very good. We had mushroom (Kokinko sp?) soba, crispy tofu, a shredded salad and vegie pot stickers in a vegie stew (don’t remember the name). Green tea was excellent. Pottery was attractive.

The menu has a number of ‘sushi’ rolls that I’ll have to try next time.

We will try it again, for sure.

5/25 – Repeat. Still good food. One dish stuffed eggplant was a little bland. Hana Mogoku was good. Still positive on the place. Cash only.
