Cool place, great burgers!

Island Veggie in Hiro-o is a cool little Hawaiian burger joint with a casual, laid-back vibe. They do a selection of soy meat burgers in a variety of flavours (terryaki, BBQ etc.) with lots of lovely salad topping. Burgers come with small portion of fries, bit soggy, but still good. They also do soy 'chicken' nuggets. I've tried several of the burgers and the nuggets, and they are truly delicious. When you've had your fill of Japanese food, this place is a nice change. They are also open for breakfast, and make the most delicious acai berry bowls, with granola, fruit and honey. Last week I had a veggie BLT sandwich for breakfast, with a soy latte, soooo good. Oh, and their shakes & smoothies are also yummy. Can you tell I like this place?
They have a loyalty card too, you get a stamp for every 500 yen you spend, and you either get a free mug or money off. Very inexpensive, good comfort food, and easy to find. Take the Hibya subway line to Hiro-o station and exit at gate 2. Turn right when you exit onto the street. Take your first right and walk along the street for a few minutes. There is a tiny side street on your right, there should be a sandwich board advertising Island Veggie. I walked past it the first time, the street is so unobtrusive, so just keep your eyes open. By the way, Hiro-o is a great area for wandering around in, nice shops etc.
Great food, Nice atmosphere, Inexpensive
