Vegetarian Japanese and fusion food

Brown Rice Cafe is a whole foods based cafe that focuses on brown rice, vegetables, and soy. They also have a deli attached to the cafe.

They specialize in traditional Japanese bowls which include a variety of steamed vegetables, seasoned tofu, and rice. They also serve sandwiches, soups, desserts, juices, and organic beers.

Brown Rice used to be completely vegan but are now using honey in some of their dishes, and perhaps egg and dairy. Please check with the staff before ordering.

There is an English menu that indicates which dishes contain egg and/or dairy (including dessert items).

This place was my all time life saver in Tokyo. It was close enough to walk and they had a take out counter, so I could eat something that I knew was vegan. Brown Rice Cafe had a small cafe as the name implies as well as the take out counter which also had organic, natural products for sale. From my recollection, the food was very good. They have an English menu too.

It was a bit spendy for the portion size. I didn't mind the smaller portions too much, but i wasn't too hungry then. The food was tasty. We got the burger and the tempeh & vegetable fritters. We had 2 desserts - the cheesecake and the tofu tart. I liked the tart the best, though the tofu cream was very beany tasting. The cream that came with the cheesecake seemed like it could have been dairy, but I never found out, just didn't eat the rest.

Take the Hanzoman line to Omote-sando station. Take the B2 exit and walk in the opposite direction that the exit leads you. Go down the first alley on your left (about 20 feet away), and walk a few minutes until you see Crayon House on your right (it's on a corner). Take a right here, and Brown Rice will be half way down the block, on the left side.
