This Vegan Sushi Spot Has More Than Just Cucumber Rolls!
The French have a reputation for love. So when it comes to wooing your taste buds, forget macarons, croque monsieur, or french fries. One Montreal establishment is making vegan sushi, and we’re smitten.
When the MTL Blog recommends locals check out Sushi Momo for Valentine’s, you know they’re not playing around. Whether it’s your weekend date choice, or you’re going to surprise your Valentine with a flight to the French Canadian city, you’re going to want to rekindle your connection with soy sauce quickly. We’re hoping this fish-free trend catches on and spreads as quickly as regular sushi shops have.
Don’t be confused by the word “végétalien,” that’s French for Vegan. On the menu, there’s much more than just your regular cucumber and avocado rolls. Diners should get excited about their unique jack fruit, faux shrimp, and Japanese plum offerings. Do you think I can hire a uber driver to deliver it to me in Toronto?
This animal friendly Japanese joint is the love child of chef Christian Alatorre Manuel Ventura, who we assume had more than enough inari and enoki before creating an alternative. Thank goodness for creative vegans, and an excuse to practice our French AND Japanese again.
