Tucked into a strip mall on Windmill, it’s really easy to miss Miko’s Sushi, serving vegan Japanese food in Las Vegas. But, what a shame if you do. Seriously.
Miko’s, owned by the personal Greg and his wife Fumiko Yankovsky, opened in 2008 and has been reeling in the plant-based community since then.
The restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner (with sushi service at night) boasts an impressive vegan menu with non-GMO and organic ingredients. Honestly, there isn’t anything we don’t love about this Japanese restaurant. It’s doing something most Japanese restaurants in the Valley aren’t doing — catering to the vegan community.
It’s evident in their menu, which offers staple Japanese dishes like Hijiki (fried bean curd), but also favorites like vegan gyoza (holy wow is it good), vegan miso soup, vegan ramen, a gorgeous kale noodle salad (when they have it, get it!) and sushi.
Oh. The. Sushi.
We can’t get enough of their innovative rolls like the Hawaiian Caterpillar (pictured) filled with pineapple and topped with avocado, coconut sauce and coconut flakes, or the Popeye Roll with spinach, avocado, pineapple and sesame sauce.
It seems the best is still yet to come from Miko’s. According to Greg, the local spot aims to expand their vegan Japanese food options and minimize animal ingredients more in the future. We can’t wait.
