[Tokyo] Vegan Izakaya Masaka (ヴィーガン居酒屋 真さか): A Restaurant Serving Only Vegan Dishes Hidden Among Others in Shibuya PARCO, Shibuya


Masaka: Authentic Vegan Izakaya Delights in the Heart of Shibuya PARCO

Located on the subterranean first floor of Shibuya PARCO, “Masaka” entices visitors with a brick facade that evokes the charm of the Showa era. Upon passing through the noren, spirited greetings from the exuberant staff set the tone. Adorning the walls, a meticulously arranged menu showcases reasonably priced items, capturing the essence of a traditional Japanese izakaya.


A haven for those seeking an affordable yet authentic experience, “Masaka” embodies the populist allure of izakaya culture deeply rooted in Japan. Remaining faithful to this heritage, the eatery exclusively crafts dishes from plant-derived ingredients, catering to the discerning tastes of the vegan community.


For lunch, the Karaage set (deep-fried soy meat) at ‘Masaka’ tantalizes with a choice of five sauces: Sichuan Mala (spicy), Teriyaki Mayonnaise, Green Onion Salt Lemon, Tartar, and Yuzu Pepper Mayonnaise. Remarkably, this delectable dish is entirely plant-based, devoid of any animal-derived elements, making it a wholesome and eco-friendly option. Renowned for its meat-like texture and savory flavor, it caters to the satisfaction of both vegans and non-vegans alike.


Beyond Karaage, the vegan haven “Masaka” expands its culinary offerings to include dumplings and an array of set menu items, providing a diverse palette of dining choices. With a steadfast commitment to environmental and social causes, Masaka actively champions sustainable food culture through its plant-based approach, creating an inviting dining experience and space that appeals not only to vegans but also to those embracing a more eclectic culinary journey.
