NOTE: Some places might be selling something (bought from other companies) that might contain butter or honey so it is always a wise idea to triple-check before you buy or consume anything (for that matter anything in Japan). However, all above listed places (in this category A-Vegan) do not use eggs, fish, and dead animals as ingredients in their own cooking at the premises.

It is near Ginza station on Ginza line exit A2. They use eggs in preparing their Naan bread so it might be better either order Rotis or Chapattis that are made of Wholemeal flour (without any eggs).  Recently they have started writing in the Menu that they use eggs in Naan bread. It is pricey location when compared to their Ogikubo’s place.

They provide one Roti to Vegan people during their lunch buffet during weekdays (Yen 950). Only lunch on weekday is reasonable priced.
