Isetan dpt store, 5-11-5
Vegan eclectic & Japanese food
M Deli is a macrobiotic food station located in the underground food court area of Isetan department store (a few blocks from Shinjuku station). This place appears to be all vegan, but they have a large restaurant in the same building that serves tons of fish, so it wouldn't hurt to double check. Neither place uses egg, dairy, or other meat.
As everything else in Japan, all the food comes in tons of plastic, and the containers say "M Deli" but the big sign behind the counter says "Chaya Macrobiotic" so I'm not sure what the name of the restaurant actually is.
They have potato salad, tofu, veggie, seaweed and cabbage dishes, along with veggie burgers, other fake meats, and some desserts. All the food is premade and either packaged, or is weighed and then packaged. You can get a mini sampler (the size of an appetizer) for about 700 yen or a larger one (a meal) for around 1200 yen.

Exit Shinjuku station at the EAST exit (very important). When you walk out, face the huge buildings with monster TVs and the JCB credit card electric display. Walk to this side of the street and take a right. Walk about 5 minutes until you get to the Isetan store and go in and go downstairs (below the cosmetic/shoe level).
