Vegan

Pizza nuts welcome here! A little secret, I am a tiny bit of a pizza fiend. It is a running joke in my family about who eats pizza more often in a week since we all are kind of obsessed

Nakameguro is a trendy neighborhood just next to swanky Daikanyama. It’s a great place to just take a stroll, either along the Meguro River or through its small streets lined with cafes & shops. I always feel a bit of imposter syndrome when I go, pretending that I’m much more sophisticated and fancy than I really am. It is also home to some of my favorite places to eat in the city. Below are my top 3 (in no particular order).

1. T's Tan Tan (Tokyo Station, Ueno Station, Narita Airport)

T's is your go-to, staple vegan food here in Tokyo. It is very popular, and rightfully so. T's provides reasonably priced vegan ramen, allowing you to try traditional Japanese food without any animal products. The vegan gyoza are delicious and crispy. They are smaller than most gyoza you will find and have a thinner, crispier shell. The gyoza contain veggies and soy meat and definitely tops the lists as a fan favorite.

My favorite dish in Tokyo

With so many wonderful vegan restaurants in Tokyo, it is hard to choose which one is my favorite, let alone which is my favorite dish. I decided I would settle on picking a favorite dish of the month so I would have no choice but to sample all the delicious vegan food I possibly could. My first spotlight will focus on the soymilk doria from T's Restaurant in Jiyugaoka. I have had this dish many times and it seriously doesn't get much better than this.
