On Monday August 31st, my birthday, the Missus invited me to our favourite sushi restaurant in Shizuoka City, namely Sushi Ko!
There are many reasons for Sushi Ko to be our favourite sushi restaurant that I have mentioned many a time before: supreme fish and vegetables (and even meat), great side dishes, including cooked dishes, originality, great service and willingness to tackle customers’ challenges! On top that add a great list of sake, shochu and even wines! As for the icing the prices are more than reasonable and clearly indicated!

Although neither of us is vegan, mr. Oda and I have this little game every time of a challenge consisting of a plate featuring at least four vegan sushi.
Here is what the chef came with this time:
Himenegi/young thin leeks reminiscent of French ciboulette.
Kaiwaredaikon/Japanese radish sprout, lightly boiled and topped with some umeboshi/Japanese pickled plum.
Betarazuke/daikon lightly pickled in sweet vinegar. In this cases served with a piece of shiso/perilla leaf between the shari/sushi rice and the neta/topping. Some lime skin was grated ontop making for a sweet sophisticated taste!
Mitsuba/Trefoil: the stems and leaves were slightly boiled and sparated, making for a bicolour combination accentuated by finely cut kyuri/cucumber!

It all looks so perfect! Happy Belated Birthday!!
Thank you so much, dear Maya!
I didn’t try it before, how does it taste like? It is good? hope that I have chances to try it once in my life, 🙂
I’m not a vegan, but I can assure you ought to try it!
I have only tried vegan sushi once (actually, I only have tried sushi twice), in a Japanese restaurant in St.Petersburg. Japanese restaurants are all the rage in Russia!
I have a package of sushi rice in the cupboard, waiting. I should definitely try to make vegan sushi at home =)
The sushi you ate look like real gourmet dishes! =D
We are lucky here in Shizuoka as this is one of the best gastronomic areas in all Japan!
