Vegan sushi. Let it sink in first and then hear us out: it may seem like a ludicrous idea, but Shizen pulls it off flawlessly. Imagine egg-free noodles in savory ramen broth; green mango nigiri, piquant with sweet ume vinegar and avocado crema; and specialty rolls like the Open Invitation (pumpkin tempura, spiced burdock, shredded tofu, tapioca, and renkon chip for crunch) to create a veritable umami inception. In a minimalist, sleek wooden environs, this Mission hotspot is a vegan’s paradise.
