Plant Based Sushi
Vegan sushi restaurant at Staatsliedenbuurt. Opened november 2020 for take-away.
No more boring sushi
Plant Based Sushi started by South African expat Claudia Deken, who was bored with the available vegan options at sushi restaurants. Having a background in business, she started to organise her own vegan sushi events, where different chefs were doing the kitchen part. One of these chefs was Jessica Lai, they had a good connection and now Jes is the permanent sushi chef. Originally from Taiwan, but she has worked before at restaurants in Spain and Australia!
Summer 2019 Plant Based Sushi found a temporary home at cultural space De Ruimte in Amsterdam North, where they hosted a pop-up every weekend for two months. Then start of 2020 they finally found a more permanent space at lunchroom OKO Cultural Meeting Point. Summer 2020 they moved on again to lunchroom Boterham at Amsterdam Oost.
End 2020 they moved to their first very own location at Staatsliedenbuurt (pictures still of the old location).
Truffle cashew cream cheese
The menu features seven different sushi rolls, including futomaki (the most well-known one, nori on the outside), urimaki (aka California roll, rice on the outside) and temaki (cone-shaped). Lots of interesting ingredients like truffle cashew cream cheese, vegan BBQ fish or onion bhaji (onions fried in a spicy batter).
Also on the menu is laksa soup: a Malaysian coconut curry soup.
