Respond to Review of Kabuki
Review: Kudos to the chef for providing a veggie menu. It is a delicious and extensive one too. We visited this restaurant for the first time and asked the waitress details about it. It is vegan! Yay! They use vegan mayo for the spicy tofu. So we splurged and ordered: Spicy Tofu on Crispy Rice, Mizuna salad with 3 dressings: kale mustard, black sesame dressing, and honey tofu dressing (only this one is not vegan since it contains honey), Veggie Rainbow Roll, Veggie Ramen, and Veggie Tofu Katsu with brown rice Spicy Tofu on Crispy Rice is out of this world! Yummy! The spicy tofu filling is the same as the one used in Veggie Rainbow Roll so it is a duplicate but we love it. Rainbow Roll was also good and addicting! The toppings of sushi are all veggies and colorful. Mizuna salad has raspberry, blueberry, green apple, edible flowers, roasted almond, and urugula. Dressings were good. Colorful and refreshing! Veggie Ramen has a lot of kale in it. It came out pipping hot. It's not that salty. I added a tad of soy sauce and sriracha. It was good and will keep this in mind for the coming winter. Tofu Tonkatsu was bland and crispy but hubby dipped it into wasabi and soy sauce. Then it was good. The black sesame dressing on the side was not the appropriate sauce for it, we thought. But wasabi, soy sauce, and pickled ginger was good for it. We were stuffed! A lot of food and portions were generous! Service was helpful and friendly. Our waitress, Sophie, was generous with her answers and even went back to the kitchen to check for the ingredients for us. She also told us that a few items in the regular menu are vegan such as the Spicy Miso Ramen, Garlic Edamame, and a few others (just ask). Yay Sophie! I highly recommend! We love Japanese food and don't have any veggie Japanese restaurant in OC. This is a good find. Thank you for the delicious and extensive veggie menu. We went to Kabuki in Ventura, Ca and they weren't as good as the one in Irvine.
