Marugo Deli Ebisu

From all the hotspots in Japan I might have spended my most time in this deli! They have the best matcha lattes, they’re super creamy and thick. They serve delicious smoothie bowls with their home made granola! Also they have muffins, sandwiches, vegan soft serve, burgers and a bunch of smoothies!

Sushi Daidokoya

Oke it’s not the biggest hotspot, but I lived around the corner and came here almost every day. It’s better quality than Genki sushi but you still order by iPad. It’s cheap, it’s easy and it’s fast. In the midday they have sushi bowl deals for about 5$!

Healthy stars: 3.5/5

Menu: gf, df, meat, fish, vegetarian, vegan

Recommendation: tofu pancakes!


Nagi Shokudo

Nagi Shokudo is this hidden away restaurant in Shibuya which is kind of hard to find. It’s on a lower level than the road and hidden behind an italian restaurant. They have a few set menus and they’re in Japanese, but this is one of the cutest spots you’ll find in Tokyo to eat vegan Japanese food.

Healthy stars: 4/5

Menu: df, gf, vegan

Recommendation: their Soy chicken nuggets

The Bowl Organic

Healthy stars: 5/5

Menu: gf, df, meat, vegetarian, vegan

Recommendation: the vegan Caesar salad


Alaska zwei

I love Japan and their set menu’s, it makes you try out a few different things for a very food price, and so is it at Alaska Zwei. They used to serve cheese or milk, but they went 100% vegan recently. Not in the mood for food, they have amazing home baked pastries as well!

Healthy stars: 4.5/5

Menu: gf, df, vegan

Recommendation: the curry



Craving some coffee in between shopping? Than Lattest is the perfect pit stop in Ometosando. They have a huge list with all different kinds of lattes! They go from charcoal lattes to matcha’s to just casual espresso’s! Hungry? they also have some pastries or sandwiches!

Healthy stars: 3.5/5

Menu: df, vegetarian, fish, meat, vegan

Recommendation: charcoal latte
