Beyond Sushi


If you like sushi then you probably have a favorite place you like to go when a craving for a California roll sets in. For a different kind of sushi experience you need to try Beyond Sushi, The Green Roll.  Located on East 14th Street, this small shop offers 100% vegan sushi that is as appealing to the eye as it is to the mouth. Each fruit and vegetable sushi is wrapped in either black forbidden rice or a customized six-grain rice blend that contains red rice, short grain brown rice, black rice, rye berries, hulless barley and pearl barley.

You can get sushi by the roll or the piece which comes with custom sauces like jalapeno wasabe and carrot ginger. Beyond Sushi also offers rice paper wraps, hand rolls and small salads.

On a recent visit I chose the “chef’s special,” — a veggie roll that had lemon roasted artichokes inside and kale chips on top — and “Crunch N’ Munch — black rice wrapped around alfalfa sprouts, cucumber, baked tofu with kiwi on top.
