Sampling Old School Favorites

When most people think of vegetarian sushi, a few traditional favorites probably come to mind. The cucumber roll has always been a hallmark of a classic sushi restaurant. It’s the perfect blend of seasoned cucumber with sesame and rice wine vinegar padded in between some sushi rice and wrapped in seaweed. It’s simple, elegant, and refreshing making it the perfect appetizer to kick off your sushi feast!


The Best of What’s Fresh

California living is all about enjoying the freshness. After delighting in the cucumber roll, most people choose to explore some of the other great options like the simply delicious veggie roll. This takes the cucumber roll up to the next level and adds in a variety of the raw, crispiest veggies. Here texture reigns supreme as you get the snap of fresh vegetables blended with the soft texture of the rice and seaweed.


The California Twist

It’s California, so naturally, one ingredient must always come to play somewhere in a dish—avocado! We enjoy avocado on everything from toast to milkshakes and, of course, sushi. Traditionally, the avocado wasn’t a part of Japanese cuisine as the tree tends to grow in warmer climates. But if you head to any sushi restaurant in Tokyo, you are sure to see a wide array of different rolls featuring the creamy treat. Our San Diego sushi restaurants offer a more standard avocado roll that gives you the creaminess of the avocado wrapped up and served alongside savory soy sauce.
