Subway is famous worldwide, isn’t it.

It has vegetarian menu here in Japan, too.
Technically speaking, menu for lacto-vegetarian, so not for a vegan.

You can find Subway everywhere in Japan.
This time, I went to Subway in Ikebukuro.

This time, I went to Subway in Ikebukuro.
There are 3 Subway in Ikebukuro and all are located in walking distance of 10 to 15 minutes on foot from the Ikebukuro Station.

I came to the Subway of Mimami Ikebukuro this time.

It is a small shop and has 9 seats.
Not for a long break but just for a quick meal or break, I recommend you here.

I took a seat at the corner.

I noticed that I’ve rarely come to Subway in my life, maybe just 2 or 3 times in my life when I ordered.

I ordered Veggie Delite, which is for lacto-vegetarian.

And the staff told me that I can choose a type of bread, vegetables and sauce.
I chose sesame bread and tomato, onion, green pepper for vegetables.
They are all the vegetables customers can choose, so I chose all of them.

You can also have an option of vegetables for accent such as olive and hot pepper for free.
I went for olive and pickled cucumber.

Lastly, you need to choose sauce.

There are 9 types such as oil & vinegar, mayo, basil, chili, etc.
There was even Japanese style sauce, wasabi soy sauce.

But some sauce include dairy products or fish stock, so I recommend you most simple one, that is, oil & vinegar.

It was an interesting experience to me to choose each ingredients as I didn’t imagine it.

Enjoy Veggie Delite

Well, the bread is tasty.

A little sweetness, I could taste and it went well with sesame.
It was good I chose sesame bread.

The vegetables were also fresh!
As I chose simple sauce of oil & vinegar, I could enjoy the taste of the vegetables themselves.

This was a substantial sandwich!

But if you are hungry, you can ask large for vegetables for free.
I didn’t ask large, so this is a standard one.

The chips were also tasty.
It is deep fried with its skin.


For coffee, beans grown in Guatemala are used.
I checked if there is a fair trade coffee but not.
Still, it was a tasty coffee.


Avocado & Veggie

I didn’t order this Avocado & Veggie but this is also a veggie one.

Difference between Veggie Delite and Avocado & Veggie is whether it includes avocado or not as long as I see.

This is not a concreate resource but one blog says this Avocado & Veggie uses Wasabi Soy Sauce Dressing which includes fish stock.

The article of the blog was written over decade ago, so it might be a bit old information.

But if you are not a pescetarian, ask the staff of Subway before you order just in case.

I like avocado itself!

Summary of Subway

Summary of Subway

Subway is not for a cafe for a vegan but for a vegetarian, I can say.

So if you are a vegetarian, I recommend you.

Good point of it is, Subway is everywhere.
Veggie Delite and Avocado & Veggie are also not menus only in a limited period but standard menus.

If you want to enjoy a quick vegetarian meal, Subway is recommended.

Depends on the Subway, the size is also different, so if you visit larger one, you can also have a long relaxing time!
