From Try Vegan Veggie Rāmen In Kōjimachi!

Probably the healthiest ramen on our list! Sora no Iro has a variety of ramen to choose from, all made with organic ingredients.

However, their most popular item must be their vegan ramen. The soup stock is made of carrot juice and topped off with seasonal vegetables. You can also choose their variety with egg topping which would make it vegetarian, not vegan.

The flour of the noodles is mixed with paprika which gives the noodles a flavor of their own. If you want your ramen to be even healthier, you can replace the regular noodles with brown rice noodles.

The ramen is very mild in flavor but you can add spices like fresh ground pink sea salt and fried garlic to taste.

If you are not interested in vegan ramen, you can also choose one of their other options.

Sora no Iro has shops all over Tokyo. Every shop has a different menu but all of their items are healthy and delicious.

RockanDo is a quiet ramen store located in Ikebukuro. They have various ramen to choose from but their most popular dish is their salt-flavored green noodle ramen with yuzu and Japanese parsley.

AFURI has long made a name for itself with their high-quality ramen. The soup stock is made in Kanagawa with fresh spring water and local ingredients.

A couple of years ago they added a vegan version to their menu. The dish is called "seasonal vegetable vegan ramen". The seasonal part just refers to the vegetables, not to the ramen itself. You can get their vegan ramen all year round.

The noodles in this vegan ramen are made from powdered lotus root and flour. The soup stock just uses vegetables and salt and the dish is garnished with fresh vegetables as well. As its vegan, no animal products are used in the soup or in the noodles.

You can also try their bestseller, the yuzu salt ramen. It is a chicken based ramen with a gentle, refreshing taste. The thin noodles are made from a blend of rye and whole wheat flour from Hokkaido. The special noodles and the chicken soup make this ramen another healthy choice at AFURI.
