Shizen Vegan Sushi

The faux sushi at Shizen, a vegan Sushi Bar & Izakaya in San Francisco’s Mission district is will impress straight-up Vegans, Leaning Vegans, Pastafarians, even Qualmnivores, or those who have doubts about everything they eat.

Starring rolls here include a Gobo Roll composed of earthy, crunchy Burdock Root, and a very piquant Secret Weapon Roll featuring shiitake mushrooms, tempura, spicy tofu, jalapeños, pineapples, and habanero peppers.

Other menu standouts include the vegan Gyoza, an ample Sake selection, and some unique and intriguing desserts, including Sweet Banana Tempura served with tart vegan blueberry ice cream.
