BEYOND SUSHI - NEW YORK CITY

If you know me, then you know I am obsessed with Beyond Sushi.  When I met Chef Guy at the Vegan Shop-Up (future post about this fantastic event later) I told him how my life is ruined since when it comes to sushi it’s Beyond Sushi, or nothing.  Unfortunately this is true, ever since I discovered the shop last year I haven’t been tempted by any other sushi. Lucky for me they have two convenient locations in Manhattan - one on East 14th Street, a short walk from Union Square, and in Chelsea Marketplace (technically called The Green Roll by Beyond Sushi).

With so many great options on the menu it’s nearly impossible to choose what to get, but somehow I manage.  The Combo 2 is my go-to since it comes with two rolls and two pieces which I mix up every time.

The Sweet Tree has won my heart with its smooth filling of avocado and sweet potato, topped off with alfalfa sprouts and a toasted cayenne sauce.  Another favorite is the Spicy Mang.  This one is filled with avocado, mango, English cucumber, then topped with spicy veggies and that lovely toasted cayenne sauce.  Rounding out the three way tie for the best roll is the Green Machine.  This powerhouse is filled with English cucumber and asparagus, then topped with basil marinated veggies and a jalapeño wasabi.  The roll wildcard is always the Roll of the Month, which features seasonal ingredients for a fun pick-me-up year round.

The second half of the Combo 2 are the individual pieces.  Your choice of six toppings on a bed of sushi rice, all wrapped up in nori.  The seaweed and mango are the perfect pair every time.  These also feature a monthly selection.

As if those weren’t enough to choose from. Beyond Sushi also offers a selection of soups, salads, wraps, and homemade desserts - can someone pass me a black sesame avocado coconut cookie or black bean sweet potato brownie?  While you’re at it I’ll also take a cucumber mint lemonade, thanks!

The only way to do Beyond Sushi justice is to give it a try, and I assure you that you don’t have to be vegan to appreciate their unique and beyond good sushi.

Note: Both locations are fairly small with limited seating, maybe 12 seats tops.  If you are in a rush or with a larger group, I recommend calling ahead for pick-up or delivery if you are fortunate enough to live within the zone.  Beyond Sushi also do catering with some amazing displays, the ultimate food art if you will and the catering goes far beyond just sushi
