Sushi is one of the best cuisines for vegetarians, despite there being lots of fish involved, there are usually more vegetables used than types of meat and fish! A lot of people are always confused when you tell them that you're vegetarian (or vegan) and you're gonna go for some sushi, usually you hear “but its all fish!”, but most people don't realise the word sushi means “sour” or “being sour”, not something that implies that it is meaty or fishy!

So, checking the menu, (and eating there probably a little too often!) the following items are suitable for vegans:

 

Soups and Broths

  • Miso Soup – Seaweed, tofu, spring onion, soy bean broth (unlimited refills)

Rice and Noodles

  • Vegetable Firecracker Rice – Spicy sushi rice, Asian vegetables
  • Vegetable Yakisoba – Noodles, vegetables, mildly spiced tangy sauce

Hot Classics

  • Pumpkin Katsu
  • Vegetable Gyoza – Vegetable dumplings, soy & vinegar sauce
  • Miso Baked Aubergine

Sushi

  • Inari Pocket (Nigiri) – Sweet soy bean curd pocket, rice
  • Kaiso Gunkan – Su-miso marinated Japanese seaweed, rice, nori
  • Cucumber Maki – Cucumber, sesame seeds
  • Avocado Maki – Avocado, mayonnaise – To make this vegan, ask for it without the mayonnaise

Salads

  • Edamame Salad – Soy beans (squeeze & suck – discard the pod), Cornish sea salt
  • Kaiso Salad – Sesame marinated Japanese seaweed, edamame, carrot, su-miso
  • Aubergine Salad – Fried aubergine, harusame sauce
  • Sunomono Salad – Cucumber, wakame seaweed, ponzu, sesame

Desserts

  • Fresh Fruit

  1. Hi Rich
    This was such good reading! The links full of info. Yesterday I was discharged from hospital so needed a lift! Especially useful for me was info on eateries. I knew nothing about Sushi and now can’t wait to give it a go! Pity that Vegsn Fairs are so popular but good to have your must and plan ahead. However as have fresh hip replacement the thought of pushing my way through the crowds makes me feel quite week! But just how much better shall I feel once healed. I shall be ready to take them all on!
    Not sure how you find the time to write your blog but very grateful that you do. I shall make sure I don’t ‘lose ‘ thus email and look forward to the next one.
    Many thanks and good luck and happy hunting !

  2. Hey Rich, just to let you know, YoSushi have vegan – tofu katsu curry, its peta approved aswell. Thats the best dish they have in my opinion! You should list it 🙂

  3. Thanks for this! Also, I’m sure that the apply gyoza with salted caramel is a vegan desert too! And also Yasai Rolls without mayo are vegan! x
