TOP 8 Affordable Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Tokyo
As you may already know, Tokyo is not the most friendly city for vegans or any kinds of vegetarians. Vegan or vegetarian restaurants are hard to find and good ones always end up expensive. I have a few vegetarian friends and they all tell me that they end up eating at home.
I am not a vegetarian myself but from my vegetarian friends votes and my votes as non-vegetarian, here is the list of the best affordable vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Tokyo.
1. Lotus & Flowers One - Koenji
Lotus & Flowers One has been one of the most popular vegan restaurants in Tokyo and now announced for its renewal in 2018 January. It definitely is not a big restaurant so don't forget to reserve before you go.
This Italian vegetarian bistro does not use broth from meat or seafood so you do not need to worry about that. However, some menu is reliant on eggs and cheese, so you need ask the staff.
During the dinner time, they only serve course. Another cool thing here is that they only serve bio wine which I love! You can order by glass too.
