Tokyo Joe’s Bowled Us Over with a Big Dairy-Free Menu


Last Updated October 2020! Asian might seem like an obvious one for dairy-free, but milk-based ingredients are used in a lot of Asian restaurant kitchens. Tokyo Joe’s on the other hand is almost completely dairy-free. At last check, all twelve of their sauces, proteins, salad dressings, and other bowl, bento, and poke bowl items were made without dairy. Just a small handful of items contain dairy, and they are very transparent about it. They also use vegan and gluten-free labels on their menu where applicable.
