Vegetarianism goes Mainstream

Growing number of healthy restaurants appeal to veggies and meat eaters alike.

In the expat haven of Azabu-juban, Eat more greens is doing a roaring trade. The New York style cafe, sells “no meat, egg or dairy products”. The interesting thing is that many diners are attracted because of the health focussed menu—not the lack of meat. This is good news for vegans and vegetarians and great for health conscious Tokyoites looking for more healthy options when eating out. Finding a vegetarian option on a Japanese menu used to be an impossible task—let alone trying to find an entire vegetarian or vegan restaurant. In the past few years though, a veggie friendly movement has started in Tokyo, now all over the city small organic eateries are opening to serve a growing demand for healthy (and meat free) food.
