Angeles -- If you think of raw fish when you hear the word "sushi,"
think again. That's because top Japanese restaurants today are meeting
consumers' growing demand for vegan sushi—that is, rolls free of the
flesh of fish who are impaled, yanked out of the water, and cut open—by dishing
up vegan crab, shrimp, and tuna in colorful rolls packed with fresh and flavorful
fruits, vegetables, and much more. Two Los Angeles restaurants that offer
creative, delicious fish-free fare are Shojin,
which is number seven on PETA's list of the top
10 restaurants for vegan sushi in North America, and The Vegan House, which grabbed the
number 10 spot on the list.
at 333 S. Alameda St. in Little Tokyo, Shojin offers more than a dozen
varieties of fish-free
sushi, including a roll with barbecue seitan (protein from wheat) and a roll
made with spicy vegan tuna, vegan mayo, and green onion Vegan House, located at
1717 N. Wilcox Ave., also offers a variety of sushi, including
a roll with grilled onions and eggplant and the California Roll with soy crab,
soy fish, and vegan mayo.

learn about how fish feel pain and fear and value their own lives, the less
interested we tend to be in eating them," says PETA Executive Vice
President Tracy Reiman. "PETA is proud to recognize restaurants such as
Shojin and The Vegan House for going above and beyond when it comes to offering
creative sushi that is as delicious as it is kind to animals."
place went to Loving Vegan in Albuquerque, N.M.,
second place went to Minako Organic
Japanese Restaurant in San Francisco, and New York's Beyond Sushi

in Markham, Ontario; New York's Soy & Sake; Kotobuki in
PETA's hometown of Norfolk, Va.; Washington, D.C.'s
Sticky Rice; and New York's Franchia Vegan Cafe. San Francisco's Cha-Ya
garnered an honorable mention.
