OUT AND ABOUT: Eating Vegan Sushi

I have a confession to make.

As a Dallas vegan, my favorite restaurant isn’t Spiral Diner & Bakery, V-Eats, or El Palote. It’s Blue Sushi Sake Grill. Yeah, at first mention I am sure that sounds wrong – but trust me, it’s 100 percent accurate.

Back in the day, BV (before vegan), getting sushi with my girls was one of my favorite ways to spend a long lunch or a Friday night. That obviously changed when I stopped eating fish. And while I’ve been able to find options at restaurants since, nothing really felt worth it. Until I met Blue Sushi Sake Grill.
