Beyond Sushi is a vegan sushi restaurant, currently with three locations in New York City. East 14th St, West 56th St and one in Chelsea Market.
Now before everyone goes into a tizzy here, I’m not a food expert. All I know is what I read on the site and what I ate when I was there. If you have food related concerns contact your doctor.
OK, back to the article. My favorite roll from them is the spicy mango roll. It’s delicious. It includes black rice, avocado, mango, English cucumber and spicy veggies. The sauce is toasted cayenne. I have eaten dozens of those rolls. I could go for one right now. So if your in the area, bring one or two by for me please.
Speaking of right now, they deliver from their 14th St and West 56th locations. To get the full information about their delivery range you may visit the site.
While researching Beyond Sushi for the article I learned some interesting things.
Not only do they cater, they will actually bring a sushi station to your next event along with one of their chef’s. They will have one of their vegan sushi chef’s making fresh rolls at your event. I may have to check pricing because I’d like that at my apartment. While I’m writing my blogs, working on my laptop or having friends over, I can have spicy mango rolls made on location. Yummy.
Another interesting thing I learned was they offer lessons on how to make sushi. That last sentence almost had an exclamation point. Sushi making classes. It doesn’t get much better then that. Visit their website or call for details regarding pricing and locations. I’m mean seriously, how awesome would it be to learn how to roll vegan sushi from professionals.
The workshop menu you will be learning with and preparing consists of individual pieces and rolls from their menu.
A few quick examples of their menu include:
Rolls [Every roll comes with 8 pieces]:
Sweet Tree. Six-grain rice, avocado, sweet potato and alfafa sprouts. Sauce is Toasted Cayenne.
Green Machine. Six-grain rice, English cucumber, asparagus and basil marinated veggies. Sauce is Jalapenõ Wasabi.
Pickle Me. Black rice, marinated carrots, roasted rosemary and Jerusalem artichokes. Sauce is sweet peas and mint. Topped with spiced walnut shavings.
They also serve individual pieces, wraps, hand rolls, salads, soups and drinks.
As per their website they are not organic or kosher.
All in all I have to say I have never had vegan sushi and I enjoy it.
