2. Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant
Although Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant isn’t entirely vegan as many items include eggs, most of their menu is vegan-friendly, and some are even gluten-free. You’ll love their shrimp, which consists of soy proteins and yams; when served with General Tso’s sauce, tastes excellent.
3. Naked Lunch
If you know MOM’s Organic Market, it isn’t a surprise that Naked Lunch brings the same ingredients you love into their meals. Their several vegan meals include salad bowls mixed with rice, beans, and various other veggies.

6. JINYA Ramen Bar
JINYA is famous for its slow-cooked Ramens that they simmer for 10 hours. When you think of traditional Japanese, it might be hard to imagine a bowl that doesn’t have a meaty broth. But at JINYA Ramen Bar, it’s impossible. They feature vegan miso ramen that they top with soy meat, tofu, bean, and sprouts.
Nevertheless, this bowl is enough to leave you full and satisfied. For this reason alone, JINYA is an excellent Japanese vegan restaurant in Fairfax.
