All You Can Eat Vegan Sushi

Going to a Japanese Restaurant for All You Can Eat sushi as a vegan is quite easy. Depending on where you go, options may vary, but I found a little useful, and I am very willing to share it with you.

Here we go…

  5. Avocado Spring Salad. (Double check the dressing)

Appetizers

  4. HACK: Futo Maki. Customize your roll, and ask for no egg.
  5. HACK: Raindrop Roll. Ask for no cream cheese or tempura.
  6. Vegetable Roll.
  7. HACK: Customize your own roll. If the restaurant you are at seems leniant enough to give you this option, do it. Pick out what vegetables you like, mango pieces or tofu slices.
  8. Sometimes the restaurant may offer a vegetarian roll section in their menu.

Teriyaki and Grill

  1. Any sort of grilled vegetable. Double check it is not fried in the same oil as the meat.
  2. Spicy Tofu.

Fried Rice/Noodles

  1. Veg Fried Rice or Noodle. Check if they do not use bonito in their soup stock.
  2. Steamed Rice.
  3. Vegetable Fried Udon. Check again if they use bonito in the hot Udon.
  4. HACK: Ask for pineapple in your fried rice/noodle.
  5. Vegetable Pad Thai. Make sure they do not use fish sauce.
  6. Thai Style Curry Rice/Noodle. Check if the curry sauce is vegan, containing no milk.

Desserts

Dessert is a tough spot for vegans. However options are vegetarian.

  1. Steamed Sweet Red Bean Bun. If the restaurant you are at offers Dim Sum, sometimes they may have this option. Double check the ingredients.
  2. Deep Fried Banana. Ask them to fry it without egg in the batter, or simply without batter.
  3. Sesame Balls. These are actually vegan and so deliciously good.

**Other Tips

  1. If you want to up the flavour, order extra pickled ginger and eat it with any of your rolls. You will thank me later 😉18789682_10156339650098508_1434352301_o1.jpg
  2. Its totally acceptable to drink your soup directly from the bowl.
  3. If you are a fan of wasabi, but don’t like having too much, here’s what you can do. In your soy sauce dish before you put your soy sauce, place a small amount of wasabi. Slowly start adding more soy sauce and mixing the two together until you feel you have just the right amount of wasabi-soy sauce ratio.
  4. If you really can’t get the hang of chopsticks, it is totally acceptable to eat your sushi with your fingers. Just make sure your hands are clean. dscn3720-e1496775146829.jpg
  5. Since it is All You Can Eat, we know we’re going to be leaving the restaurants with pretty full stomachs. A great way to help with feeling sickly full is to order a hot green tea. It will relax your tummy muscles.

All You Can Eat Sushi is a great place to go if you have friends that do not follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. There are options for everyone.

Enjoy!
