Are they still vegetarian at all?

1 Posted on 07 / 26 / 2013

In recent weeks I've been into three different outlets that I used to frequent and all have stopped doing any kind of veggie burger. They couldn't tell me whether this was nationwide and I was unable to find an email contact so I sent a letter to their headquarters in Aoyama requesting a clarification and explanation. I wrote it in Japanese leaving my full details but I never got a reply. Can anyone else update me on this?

It may just be the places I go, but after many years in Japan I feel things are getting less vegetarian-friendly (not that it was ever very friendly). Several products that I used to buy have been discontinued or have had non-vegetarian ingredients added to them.

    Thanks for this update Paul. I don't know if it's everywhere but I dropped into a Kichijoji branch today and sure enough biinzubaagu was back. I'll try to go often enough to convince them there really is a veggie clientele out there.

May not have veggie burger

1 Posted on 04 / 14 / 2013

We stopped here for some veggie burgers, after hunting in vain for something else in the area. We did not see either the bean burger or tofu burger on the menu. When we asked, we were told they were "sold out" of those. I don't know if that means they normally have them or not.


Cons: may be out of veggie burgers

    I've been to Freshness Burger in Hino and Koenji and both have the beans burger again. No tofu burger though unfortunately.

Not veg-friendly if you are a strict veggie

2 Posted on 01 / 23 / 2013

The two vegetable burgers may be meat free but they are cooked on the same grill as the meat burgers, as are the buns. Depending on how strict you are you may want to skip and get a real veggie burger elsewhere! Fries and onion rings are also cooked alongside meat products. I do love their iced chai though...

Pros: Many locations, Yummy chai
Cons: Not strictly veggie

None of the burgers are vegan

The two vegetable burgers are not vegan, as the buns are with eggs and milk.


Cons: Not vegan, Milk and eggs in the bun

Tasty Burgers

We tried both vege burgers - the bean one and the tofu burger. Both were excellent - so much so that we ordered seconds!

The place is a simple fast-food style restaurant. Order at the counter and the meal is brought to you in a basket.

Good for a quick snack.
