Shizen Vegan Sushi

The faux sushi at Shizen, a vegan Sushi Bar & Izakaya in San Francisco’s Mission district is of sufficient artistry to impress not just straight-up Vegans, but also Leaning Vegans, Pastafarians, even die-hard Qualmnivores*.

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

Other menu highlights include vegan Gyoza, a broad Sake selection, and delightfully intriguing desserts options including Sweet Banana Tempura served with tart vegan blueberry ice cream.
