Norfolk, Va. -- If you think of raw fish when you hear
"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 lobster, scallops, and salmon in colorful rolls packed
with fresh, flavorful fruits, vegetables, and much more. So PETA scoured the
land to determine North America's top
10 restaurants for vegan sushi, and the results are in.
Taking the title is Loving
Vegan, where the Amazing Roll—loaded
with faux lobster, avocado, and cucumber and topped with grilled mushrooms—and
the spicy "tuna" Dynamite
Roll have won fans in Albuquerque, N.M., and beyond. Coming in a close
second was Minako
Organic Japanese Restaurant in San Francisco, which specializes in vegan
eel dishes, such as the unsurpassed faux eel with avocado roll. New York City's
all-vegan Beyond Sushi grabbed third
place, thanks to crisp, vegetable-packed rolls, such as the Mighty
Mushroom, an enoki, shiitake, and tofu roll served with a rich shiitake
Rounding out the top 10 are Tenon Vegetarian
Cuisine in Markham, Ontario; New York's Soy & Sake; Kotobuki in Norfolk, Va.; Los
Angeles' Shojin Organic &
Natural; Sticky Rice in
Baltimore, Richmond, Va., and Washington, D.C.; New York's Franchia Vegan Cafe; and Vegan House in Los Angeles. Garnering
an honorable mention is Cha-Ya in San Francisco and Berkeley, Calif.
"There's a sea change taking place in North America's
eating habits—the more we humans 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 these restaurants for going above and beyond when it comes to
offering creative sushi that is as delicious as it is kind to animals."
All the winners and honorable mention will receive a framed
certificate to display on their walls. For more details on all the restaurants,
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
