I didn’t think I would ever be able to find a restaurant that made vegan sushi until I found a restaurant in downtown Kansas City called Blue Sushi Sake Grill. It’s heaven for any vegan wanting sushi. When you look on the menu, everything that has a V beside the name is 100% vegan. When I saw this, I have to admit that it made me very excited! I had more options to choose from than what I expected.
I decided I would try two different kinds of sushi. What did I order?
First I ordered the “EDEN ROLL”. The Eden Roll contains vegan tempura sweet potato, grilled asparagus, edamame hummus, sun-dried tomato, brown rice, soy paper and olive oil. It came in 8 pieces. I was so excited to try it!!!
To say the least, it was delicious and very filling. It had the perfect touch of sweet potato mixed with the flavors of sun-dried tomato and hummus. The texture was typical for any sushi. I really enjoyed it. The waitress said it’s one of their most popular dishes. I can see why.
The second menu item I ordered was the “COW GIRL”. OMG. That’s all I have to say. This sushi went above and beyond any sushi I’ve ever tasted. It was AMAZING! It had crunchiness on the inside with the perfect texture of soft rice on the outside. It contained vegan tempura pickle, sriracha-fried onion rings, vegan mayo and bbq paper. It was a tad smaller than the Eden Roll. The Cow Girl only came with 5 pieces. I do wish it was larger because it was out of this world!
Did I mention they give you cucumber water?
I will definitely be going back because now I want to try all of the vegan sushi on their menu! Have you been there before? If so, how was your experience?
p.s.-sorry for the horrible pictures. The restaurant lighting was very dim.
