Have you heard of vegan sushi? I hadn’t, but I love sushi, so of course, I had to try. Read more about how it tasted, and which varieties I tried, and some more info about the restaurant.
Beyond Point – Vegan Sushi in New York
This is one of the first restaurants that serve 100% vegan sushi. The ingredients are local and seasonal. Prices are very reasonable given to the restaurant’s location in Manhattan and that it’s a New York restaurant in general.
The owner of the concept is the renowned chef Guy Vaknin and his wife, Tali. The supply is mainly sushi, but there are also other dishes like noodle soup and salads, also 100% vegan. Beyond Point is both cozy and homey place with a simple interior, yet with an excellent food standard.
Here you go for a quick and delicious vegan dinner. Perfect as lunch or quick stop between all the sightseeing.
I tried these sushi rolls
- Sunny Side
- La Fiesta
- Chic Pea
- Spicy Mang
- Mighty Mushroom
Except for vegan sushi, I also ordered some Kimchi, which is a South Korean dish. I love Kimchi, so of course, I had to try. The home made Kimchi from Beyond Point was delicious. However, it was quite more spicy than what I’ve tried in South Korea.
Of the varieties I tasted, Sunny Side was my absolute favorite, containing black rice, dried tomatoes, braised fennel and avocado topped with Butternut pumpkin and almond pesto. If the sushi were an Italian invention, the Sunnyside would be a real classic.
Besides Sunny Side, I also liked the Spicy Mang and La Fiesta. These two were also very good, and if I would recommend three dishes, I would undoubtedly choose Sunnyside, Spicy Mang, and La Fiesta.
Spicy Mang contains black rice, avocado, mango, English cucumber topped with spiced vegetables. Sure it was a little sting in it, but the flavors worked well together, and spiciness was just right.
La Fiesta, on the other hand, had a soft and delicate flavor, almost like liverwurst, thanks to the purée of black beans.
