Suzanne, Heather, Julia and I headed to the LES last week to try SOY, a tiny little Japanese home cooking place suitable for meat eaters and meat shunners alike, although all things soy are definitely highlighted.
First of all, it's ADORABLE. It looks like someone's kitchen, and basically is. Prices can't be beat, with most things under 10 dollars. Portions are moderate, yes, but you'll clean your plate and feel good about it.
We ordered some gyoza and a soy pancake which were good, but the entrees definitely won. Above, you'll notice the vegetable curry, everything burger, eeel and cucumber bowl (a special that day!), and the big winner: the spicy tuna and avocado bowl! OWNED!
boo ya, comin' back soon.
