Not that we are strictly vegan but we do enjoy meals minus the meat due to the horrendous way animals are slaughtered all over the industrial world. The food and welcome here are stupendous. Thanks a million.

Wala extends her genuine love of preparing unique meals and drinks and welcomes everyone with a big smile and hug. She speaks Spanish, English and French. A must for everyone in San Jose....even if your not vegan.

As a vegan, finding good gluten-free and healthy options can be difficult in San Jose, but not at Yukawala. Not only is the food delicious and healthy, but you can tell how much love also goes into the food and it's a ridiculously good price....More

Great home cooked food by a woman who puts love into her dishes. Prices are unbeatable as far as vegan food goes in San Jose. Live music on Thursday nights. Such a happy friendly vibe.

I have a special affection for this place. Since I have been traveling for a year, I really felt home meeting this atmosphere. The food is really good and cheap, ideal for people who have special diet or simply adpets of vegetarian or vegan food....More
