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 standout Gobo Roll sporting earthy crunchy Burdock Root, and piquant Secret Weapon Roll featuring: shiitake mushrooms, tempura, spicy tofu, jalapeños, pineapples, and habanero peppers.

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