In Higashi-Ueno, about 5 min by foot from Ueno station Iriya exit, there is a small café called "Guruatsu". They offer a variety of muffins, scones, cookies and drinks. They also have a daily changing vegetable lunch. You can eat in or do take out! About their Philosophy Guruatsu is a vegan and macrobiotic café.

If you read my blogpost about Apellila in Kyoto and Kamakura24sekki then you probably know how much I love bread♡ I was a bit sad that there was no such place in Tokyo, or at least none relatively close to where I live. Buuuuuuut: On May 22th "Universal Bakery and Cafe" in Setagaya Daita, a completely vegan bakery just opened! （＾◇＾）♡ About Universal Bakery and Cafe The bakery offers lots and lots of vegan breads as well as coffee♡ They have everything from baguette, German-st
A little while ago the Japanese burger chain Mos Burger introduced a plantbased vegan burger in 9 of their Tokyo branches, which is so amazing! However, because they were pretty far away and because of the corona crisis I didn't have a change to try it. When I went for a little walk a few days ago I passed the nearest Mos Burger and I couldn't believe my eyes - there was wa poster in front of the shop stating the plantbased green burger was gonna be available from 21. of May!
Since the weather got quite hot recently, I've been enjoying a bit lighter dishes rich in fresh veggies. As I like soba noodles (buckwheat noddles) a lot, I came up with this colorful soba veggie bowl! Not only is it rich in vegetables, it also contains healthy noodles for carbs, chickpeas for protein and sesame oil for healthy fats. Ingredients Ingredients100g Soba noodles (I use wide ones as they don't get as soggy, see pic) 1 carrot 1 zucchini 1/4 leek 1/4 medium sized oni
Falafel - the love of (most) vegans. It's not easy to find falafel in Japan, at least I personally have never seen it anywhere. Since I had heared about Falafel Brothers, I was looking foreward to going there someday and on my birthday it happened by chance. A friend and I went to their newest shop in Shibuya. They also have one in Ebisu and one in Roppongi. Falafel Brothers First of all, if you don't know what falafel is, let me explain it real quick. It is a traditional Med
Especially if you're vegan like me it is nearly impossible to find bread at supermarkets. Some bakeries do offer vegan breads but they too are usually sweet. However, I recently discovered an amazing little bakery in Kyoto which not only offers delicious savory and sweet bread. Everything is vegan as well! APELILA "Apelila" is a small vegan bakery near Demachiyanagi station, locaded next to a river with lots of sweet but also savory vegan baked goods. When you come inside, yo
In Germany when we go to someones home to celebrate or if there are parties at school or work we often bring muffins with us, just because it is so easy to prepare them and everyone can just grab one. As I grew up in a culture where we eat them a lot, I kind of missed eating them here in Japan. Especially as a vegan it is hard to find really good ones. So, when I came across "Go!MuffinsGo!" on Instagram, I instantly decided to give them a try. 「Go! Muffins Go!」について According
