YES! sushi has launched a new vegan Sakura menu for two at all locations across the UK. The international assembly-line sushi franchise continues to expand its vegan offering with a new seven-course menu for two, priced at £25.
The new YO! Sushi Sakura’s plant-based menu features a selection of Edamame, Mushroom Teriyaki, Faux Duck Rolls, Loaded Gyozas, Veggie Volcano Rolls, Red Pepper Dragon Rolls, and DoughChi. The company offers a wide variety of vegan products on its menu, and its Tofu Katsu Curry won the Best Vegan Curry category at the 2015 PETA Vegan Food Awards.
Vegan sushi is at the forefront of the alternative seafood movement, with fish-free sushi making its way into foodservice channels around the world. In the plant-based space, Current Foods — formerly known as Kuleana — makes sushi-grade vegan seafood from ingredients like radish, peas, bamboo and seaweed.
In the field of precision fermentation, Aqua Cultured Foods produces sushi-grade whole muscle fillets and recently announced new advances in its fermentation technology to double its biomass production. In the world of cell-cultured seafood, US-based BlueNalu has partnered with Japan’s largest sushi company to deliver cultured tuna.
