Sushi Samurai has been around for over a decade, but it’s practically a whole new restaurant now that their menu is now entirely vegan. The small plates, rolls, and nigiri rely heavily on faux seafood, so you’ll find fishless options like tempura-battered konjac shrimp, imitation salmon sashimi, and spicy “tuna.” Your best bet is to stick with the fake shellfish—the texture is spot-on, and the tempura breading makes the konjac taste more similar to real prawns, as opposed to nigiri featuring striped slices of what resembles opaque Jell-O.
