sairam-6Finding vegan restaurants close to downtown Yokohama can be a bit of a task. But located just a short walk away from Okurayama Station, vegan cafe and restaurant Sairam offers a healthy variety of deli options, sweets, and drinks.


A fermented brown rice (which is high in nutritional content and often used to help detox) and miso soup set is available for ¥500, with free refills on the rice. All of the deli items are priced at ¥450 per 100g portion. Though the selection changes slightly each day, you will find mouth-watering teriyaki hamburg made with soy protein and oatmeal, deep-fried radish steaks, natto spring rolls, lotus root cutlets, sautéed eggplant, and more. Among the drinks on the menu are decaffeinated cereal coffee (¥450), herbal teas (¥450~), soy latte (¥600), lassi (¥750) and smoothies (¥800~).


For those with a bit more of a sweet tooth, Sairam offers a popular French toast set (¥1,500) served with soy ice cream and coffee. There is also an option to get a sweets set (¥700) with either a seasonal fruitcake or muffin (some gluten-free sweets available) and your choice of herbal tea or coffee. If you want a quick bite, various muffins (¥380) are available for individual purchase. You can choose to eat everything there or get your meal to go.


Guests are required to remove their shoes giving the charming interior a homey feel. The cosy ambiance is perfect for intimate gatherings, a date night out, or afternoon lunch with an old friend. With branches now in both Kamakura and Ogikubo, Sairam is one new vegan chain that we hope continues to expand.
