Baltimore -- If you
think of raw fish when you hear the word "sushi," think again. That's
because top Japanese restaurants today are meeting consumers' growing demand
for vegan sushi that didn't cost a fish a fin and a tail by dishing up
colorful rolls packed with faux fish and other mock meats, fresh and flavorful
fruits and vegetables, and more. PETA has ranked the top 10 restaurants for vegan
sushi in North America,
and Sticky Rice, with four locations—one at 1634
Aliceanna St. in Baltimore, one
H St. N.E. in Washington,
and two in Richmond, at 2232 W. Main St.
and 2227 W. Main St.—has taken the
Sticky Rice offers
two types of tofu-based sushi, including the Hot Hippy made with spicy
marinated tofu, scallions, peanuts, cucumbers, and carrots. A dozen sushi
dishes with vegetables run the gamut from the Dirty South (vegan tempura
fried sweet potato and sesame seeds) to the aptly named Gardens on Fire with
tempura carrots, cucumbers, and avocados rolled with optional vegan wasabi mayo
and umeboshi (pickled fruit) paste as well as a loud and clear warning on the
menu: "really spicy!!!" Other standouts include the G.I.
Jane—cucumbers, optional vegan cream cheese, scallions, and sesame seeds rolled
in crushed wasabi peas.
"There's a sea
change taking place in North America's eating habits—the more we learn about
how fish feel pain and fear, the less likely we are to eat them," says
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA salutes Sticky Rice for
offering creative sushi that is as delicious as it is kind to animals."
Top honors go to Loving
Vegan in Albuquerque, N.M. Second place goes to Minako Organic Japanese
Restaurant in San Francisco, and New York's Beyond Sushi has grabbed
third place. Rounding
out the top 10 are Tenon Vegetarian Cuisine in Markham, Ontario; New
York's Soy & Sake; Kotobuki in PETA's hometown of Norfolk,
Va.; Los Angeles' Shojin Organic & Natural; New York's Franchia
Vegan Cafe; and Los Angeles' Vegan House. Garnering an honorable
mention is Cha-Ya in San Francisco and Berkeley, Calif.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
