Kinari is a Japanese spot in West Hollywood with a massive sushi menu and tons of plant-based options, including vegan sushi and ramen. Their plant-based broths are pretty good, with the salty, rich miso ramen earning an honorable mention. But the creamy mushroom and onion ramen had us questioning what we were eating (in the best way): it was cloudy, creamy, and hearty like tonkotsu, but didn't coat our mouths with fat. However, we should note that only the broths are vegan, meaning you'll still get slices of a slice of chashu on top unless you request otherwise. Kinari is a solid option for plant-based eaters who feel left out at ramen and sushi night, plus, it's easy for walk-ins and there's a streamlined takeout operation if you just want to enjoy noodles on the couch.
