Finding a truly vegetarian café in Tokyo is always a pleasure for those of us who don’t partake of meat or fish. Island Veggie in Hiroo is located in a cozy alley just far enough from the main street to provide a serene and peaceful atmosphere while munching on an array of delicious vegan and vegetarian treats.
What’s more is that the latest addition to the HealthyTOKYO network is offering HealthyTOKYO membership cardholders 20% off of their individual bill anytime and as often as you visit.
Their extensive menu of Hawaiian macrobiotic delicacies includes sandwiches like veggie burgers, vegan ham and homemade peanut butter and banana (a HealthyTOKYO staff favorite!). Vegan salads, falafel and soy chicken nuggets are also waiting for hungry souls to gobble them up. A wide variety of mixed bowls are offered, including the Sambazon Berry Bowl, The Rio Bowl, Matcha Bowl, Coconut Mango Bowl and Chocolate Banana bowls. Several Acai-based smoothies and Island Veggies’ famous Peanut Butter Shake are ready for the most scrupulous straw-toters. And there is more – hot and cold homemade drinks and organic teas to accompany your meal or as an alternative to the local Starbucks.
This vegan and vegetarian café in Tokyo has been around since 2011 and is well visited by locals as well as people who travel to this wonderful shop, tucked away on what some refer to as “Hiroo Organic Alley”. With all this great vegetarian fare at a special price for HealthyTOKYO cardholders it is time to head over to Island Veggie – an oasis in Hiroo.
Soy protein isolate with more arginine and glutamine than whey — a perfect vegetarian alternative!
