Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurants

Although vegetarian restaurants have increased in number recently in Japan, the reality is that there are still just a few. In addition, it is rare that supermarkets carry vegetarian ingredients, making it difficult to customize your own vegetarian meal, even if you have vegetable broth.

However, in Tokyo, there are shops serving hamburgers that vegetarian diners can enjoy.
This article feature must-try hamburgers made with healthy ingredients that are ideal for visitors who’d like to fill themselves up with delicious plant-based food.

1. Hanada Rosso: Enjoy a Meal Made with Healthy Ingredients

Hanada Rosso, located in the back of a building close to exit 7 of Meiji-jingumae Station, is where you can relax and enjoy a delicious meal. The restaurant has a cute, red and white themed interior, and even solo diners will feel comfortable here.

This space also serves as a destination for art and culture, as art exhibits are held at the shop at certain times throughout the year.

Pictured above is the HANADA veggie burger with additive-free french fries (1,580 yen excluding tax). This is only available at dinner time.

The burger is flavored with organic tomato ketchup and makes for a filling meal. Both the burger and sauce are made entirely from vegetables and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. For customers who are unable to eat gokun (*1) for religious reasons, the shop can prepare burgers and sauces without them.

For dessert, we recommend the homemade vegan chocolate cake (500 yen excluding tax) which uses fresh seasonal fruit. The restaurant also has a full drink menu that includes organic juices, lassi (a chilled beverage from India), and smoothies, so you can also stop in for a cafe break.

*1 Gokun: Vegetables belonging to the green onion (negi) family of plants, including green onions, shallots, garlic, onions, and Chinese chives.

Roppongi is a popular neighborhood, home to large-scale commercial complexes like Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown. Veganic to go is located about a five minute walk away from Roppongi Station. The shop has a cozy interior and an eat-in space. You can relax and take your time dining at this restaurant.

This is the Veganic Tartar Fish Burger (980 yen excluding tax). The fish patty is actually made from tofu, and the shop staff experimented in order to create a fish-like texture.

As you can tell by looking at the photo above, this is a monster-size burger! This is a very delicious burger that provides the same level of satisfaction as a burger made from meat.

The menu is in both Japanese and English, so customers without a command of Japanese can order easily.

These burgers are made with vegetables equivalent to a serving of one entire salad! Serving vegetable-filled dishes are not only good for consumers but also supports local vegetable farmers.

All the menu items are suitable for vegans with 100% plant-based ingredients and are made without artificial additives and preservatives, and chemical seasonings. Alcohol is not used in any of the restaurant’s dishes, making this ideal for halal diets.

Meals prepared by Veganic to go will certainly make your body and mind feel healthy.
