This is a great place to go for vegan food in Tokyo, and will satisfy even the fussiest of meat-eaters. I visited the Falafel Brothers Ebisu branch, but if this location isn't convenient for you then check out their other branches in Tokyo as there may be a store closer to you.
Japan has been notoriously difficult for vegans and even vegetarians to navigate in the past, but that has thankfully changed a lot over the last few years. It’s becoming more and more common to find vegan restaurants, and wait staff in general have become much more aware and accommodating to those with dietary restrictions.
The salad bowl set that I ordered is customisable in terms of toppings and salad dressings, and was absolutely delicious. I’ve saved this place in my Google Maps as a favourite and already plan to return on my next visit to Tokyo.
I’ve made a couple of posts about vegan cafes on this blog, and also try to mention cafes that have vegan or vegetarian options, but I suggest doing your own research too. Aside from individually searching and checking store Instagram pages or Google Maps pages, I recommend the website Happy Cow for anyone looking for vegan or vegetarian food in Japan. The website has a lot of useful information, so you’re bound to find a place that has just what you’re looking for.
