senroppon salad (shredded salad) at cha-ya, san francisco

i visited cha-ya’s san francisco location and was more than pleasantly surprised. first off, you should believe the rumours that cha-ya gets crazy busy, but i visited during lunch and it wasn’t too bad. i didn’t even have to wait for a table.. maybe it was an off-day.  i ordered the senroppon salad, which is so lovely you don’t even want to eat it! there is shredded daikon, turnip, cucumber, carrots, tofu, radishes, soybeans, sprouts, and pine nuts, all topped with a soy-vinaigrette dressing. YUM. everything is really affordable, but just remember it is cash only. it’s also all vegan.

hello vegan roll. these sushi rolls are massive! there is asparagus, tofu, cucumber, broccoli, pickled burdock, and shiitake all waiting for you. i must have looked funny mooshing it all into my mouth; however, i enjoyed it and i can’t wait to go back for more!

i don’t have a photo, but the vegan chocolate cake is amazing!

thank you, cha-ya for existing.
