Beyond Sushi – New York

photo 2All vegetarian and vegan sushi bar? hell yes! Beyond Sushi is for all the sushi lovers out there that have been to so many Japanese restaurants and requested, begged and pleaded for vegetarian rolls. With 2 outposts in New York City, this place is not to be missed. They make interesting concoctions with mangoes, kiwi, micro greens, tofu, black rice and much more.

After a complaint from our side, and many unnecessary frowns on their side, we were finally shown to a table that one could consume a meal at. Read more
