Let’s be real: ordering vegan sushi isn’t really challenging in Las Vegas. But, it is more challenging to find more creative dishes on Japanese menus that aren’t the run-of-the-mill cucumber/avocado/veggie rolls.
While Kabuki, a popular Japanese restaurant, doesn’t label anything as vegan, it does have plenty of items marked as vegetarian. However, upon a little digging, most of these items are vegan, too.
Small plates include fresh tofu, steamed veggies, garlic edamame and our favorite — spicy tofu served atop crispy rice. They also have a healthy selection of salads to start off the meal.
While the sushi options aren’t awe-inspiring, they do offer a handful of rolls to choose from, including a veggie rainbow roll, as well as the sweet bean curd roll.
For entrees, try the pan-fried tofu in yuzu pepper teriyaki sauce with shiitake mushrooms and asparagus, or spicy veggie ramen.
Sorry gang, no vegan desserts … yet.
