Event

Vegan Gourmet Festival Tokyo 2018

Visited Vegan Gourmet Festival Tokyo which is held on 22th April.

Vegan or vegetarian event is not so many here in Japan.
And it was not like very big festival.
Still I could see many people enjoy the event.

I’ll introduce the atmosphere of Vegan Gourmet Festival here.



Review

Vegan Gourmet Festival was held in Kiba park.
It is not the center of the Tokyo, rather close to the sea area.
But I could see Tokyo Sky tree in Asakusa in the back there.

What are they selling?

Hatsutamono

I see, bread of natural yeast.
No egg, sugar, milk, chemicals are used.
I know most organic or vegetarian restaurants or shops use brown sugar or maple syrup instead of white sugar but this shop doesn’t use any sugar.
That’s rare.
This shop is Hatsutamono, it is a small shop located in Tokyo.

Takoyaki?

Nyaku-yaki (Vegan Takoyaki)

I never imagined to see Takoyaki here.
By the way, Takoyaki is octopus ball.
But, yes, what they sell is vegan Takoyaki.

Nyaku-yaki (Vegan Takoyaki)

I couldn’t find what they use for the ingredients but I think they used Konyaku.
Because they sell their Takoyaki as Nyaku-yaki.
This Nyaku must be Nyaku of Konyaku, I think.

Hemp beer, that’s rare.
They were also selling fried soybeans, soybeans ice cream.
