The second shop of the “haishop” brand cafe is opening in Shibuya on the 17th of September. 80 percent of its dishes are vegan. Their concept is “sustainability” and they buy 75 percent of the ingredients directly from growers, which makes it possible for them to reduce food loss by using nonstandard fruit and vegetables.
Here is the website of the cafe.
Midorie, an organic restaurant in Meguro, Tokyo, announced that they would begin accepting orders for their vegan osechi on the 10th of September.
