    A Vegan Sushi Wave Hits Los Angeles with 2 New Restaurants

    Angelenos have been hit by a wave of new vegan sushi options, including the first plant-based omakase restaurant in the city. Opened earlier this month, Kusaki—named after the Japanese word for “plant”—brings high-end, vegan sushi to the city’s west side. 

    Kusaki boasts an extensive, all-vegan menu featuring sashimi and vegetable-forward sushi rolls crafted by a world-class team of chefs, many of whom previously worked in Michelin-starred restaurants. 

    Patrons longing for a taste of sashimi can choose between Crispy Garlic Tuna (made with avocado, microgreens, and seaweed confetti); Salmon Shiso (featuring wasabi, crispy onions, and shiso vinegar); and Sailfish Crudo (made with radish sprouts, yuzu kosho, ponzu, and sea salt). Tuna, salmon, sailfish, seared tuna, and calamari round out the restaurant’s vegan nigiri sushi menu.
