How I became the neighborhood SOY mom

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

"Yes, it's real meat."
Soy is not a vegetarian restaurant. Although we serve many vegetarian dishes, we also have choices with meat and fish. In Japan, we cook soy products just like another vegetable. Soy as meat substitute for vegetarian is an American concept. Soy is wonderful food for everyone. We would like to bring soy to everyone's table, because it's healthy and delicious.

"No, we do not have sushi."
Soy is a Japanese home cooking restaurant. We serve authentic traditional dishes such as Niku Jaga and Gomoku-mame, or not so traditional popular favorites like Curry Rice and Potato Croquettes. Sushi is actually not a typical Japanese cuisine in Japan, especially in home cooking.

"Some are traditional, some are my mom's recipes, and many are my own creations."
Soy's owner/chef Etsuko Kizawa is a filmmaker, designer, marathon runner, among other little endeavors. She brings in authenticity and creativity to the SOY's innovative menu.

"Everything is absolutely delicious"
Of course!!
