Azabu-Juban's go-to place for vegetarian grub, Eat More Greens draws a cosmopolitan crowd with the promise of meat-free taco rice and vegan pecan pie. Modelled after the kind of eatery you might find in New York's Lower East Side, the restaurant has high ceilings, a long counter and ample terrace seating. Lunch options include a daily soup, curry and rice bowl, though many people opt for the staple dish: vegetarian taco rice, made with black soybeans and black rice (pictured). At dinner, the choice expands to include falafel, veggie bolognaise and a daily pasta – and make sure you leave room for some vegan cake afterwards. In the warmer months, Eat More Greens opens for breakfast at the weekend, when you can start the day with some own-made bread and jam.
UPDATE: After 're-opening' in spring 2016, Eat More Greens is no longer a vegan – nor even a vegetarian – joint. There are still a few vegan options on the menu, but these are crowded out by a lineup of barely average café fare. And to top it all off, a ¥300 table charge has been added (not that the service has gotten any better for it – quite the contrary). Disappointing, to say the least.
