Located on a side street near Aoyama Gakuin University, this 100 percent vegan restaurant has an undeniable trendy flair, but still works for a casual lunch or evening with friends. Borrowing heavily from Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, the atmosphere itself gives you a hint of the restaurant’s extensive wine collection.

Innovative dishes like tempeh souvlaki, vegetable skewers, paprika-sprinkled pita bread, ricotta-sage ravioli and tofu steak demonstrate that 8ablish — while unapologetically vegan — is nonetheless focused on taste.
