Would've been nice if they offer quinoa and brown rice in stead of white rice.
It's nice to have more variety of vegan mock seafood like salmon, tuna, scallops, etc
I recently visited ABQ and was excited to see so many 100% vegan restaurants (though most are asian-inspired). Loving Vegan ended up being my favorite. Located in trendy Nob Hill, it has a large, beautiful, sunny space and a menu to rival any asian restaurant - vegan or not. My boyfriend ordered the bento and I got the pad thai and egg rolls. I am a pad thai fanatic, I rarely order anything else, and Loving Vegan's pad thai is probably one of my all-time favorites. I had to pay $2 extra to add vegetables (a vegan wants vegetables, who knew!), but the sauce was spot-on, the assortment of broccoli/carrot/zucchini was perfect, and the chewy tofu was delish. For $10 + $2 for the vegetables, it was an extremely delicious filling lunch and I had a leftover portion for dinner! My boyfriend scarfed up his bento before I could even steal some, he loved the combo which included sesame chick'n and rice, salad, sushi, miso soup, and egg rolls for $10. Their miso soup was good, and the egg rolls were really just deep fried spring rolls. Loving Vegan is definitely on my list of places I'll be visiting again!
This is one of the best vegan restaurants I have ever been to-- in the world. Not fancy, but wonderful, delicious food. The sushi options are fabulous. The hot main dishes leave a bit to be desired, and tofu is not a listed option; I am not a fan of the chewy fake meat choices in the hot items. However, the appetizers are great, including the shrimp tempura and age tofu! Also, they have a range of desserts, such as cupcakes, that are divine!
This is another one of my monthly eateries when I come into the big city for my weekly shopping. I actually have a hard time deciding between this and Thai Vegan. But this place is absolutely wonderful. I usually order the Miso soup, veggie egg rolls and the New Mexico Roll. I have had other items as well with my non-vegan friends and they are all delicious! It is a bit pricier but well worth it when you eat out as little as I do. I usually read and enjoy the atmosphere as I am usually by myself. The service is excellent and you get your food very fast.
As a fairly new vegan it's great to be able to go in a restaurant and have Absolutely Anything you want!!
Did you know they also have cupcakes!
The waitress is always super nice and helpful!
My non-vegan friend said "I'm loving loving vegan sushi"! They have other stuff besides sushi too!
Admittedly I am not a fan of Japanese food. I felt queasy after my Loving Vegan meal. I'm writing a negative review (which I seldom do) because this restaurant touts itself as endorsed by PETA, yet, according to the local business newspaper the owner owns several other eateries that feature chicken and pork. How is this different from restaurants described as veg friendly? My vegan/AR friends wish only to patronize businesses that to not offer animal flesh as food whether it is on site or at another eatery owned by the same person.
This was the first place we ate it while visiting Albuquerque and we had to restrain ourselves from going back for every meal after that. We got the amazing roll, loving vegan roll and the heart attack, all of which were absolutely fantastic. The other vegan restaurants in the city are great but this will definitely be the first one we go to when we visit ABQ again!
We got the amazing roll, the monkey balls, and a spare ribs bento box. The monkey balls were the favorite, crisp and sweet. I couldn't eat the spare ribs because they were a little TOO authentic, but my girlfriend loved them. The ginger tea was delicious, and the server was very nice. There were cupcakes and brownies available for desert, but they were a little dry. I will definitely be going here again.
The Amazing Roll, Dynamite Roll, Forever Green Roll, and the Loving Vegan Rolls are all excellent. Best vegan sushi I've ever had. They have super good service and they make the sushi on the spot for you. They also offer very good vegan bento boxes with vegan spareribs and other vegan meats. The gyoza, heart attack appetizer, and the monkey balls appetizers are all good to order for a large party, too. Must visit for vegan food in ABQ and worth the drive.
Though small and plain, this is by far my favorite vegan restaurant in town. The sushi chef is so friendly, remembers all of our favorite rolls, and makes amazing food! The futomaki roll is delicious as are the bento boxes-especially with spareribs!
Hello sushi! Ever go to a joint with your friends and be stuck with kappa and avocado rolls and rolling your eyes thinking: wow, I could have a better meal just about anywhere... Ok, well, this is your sanctuary. Vegans can eat everything on the menu, everything!
The special rolls are spectacular - with items like bell peppers wrapped around the sushi rolls, bbq sauce, portobello mushrooms, asparagus, sweet potato, avocado, cucumber, and mango as ingredients. This place is amazing. Tempura and spiciness, stir fry and bento boxes - you will not be disappointed in the amount of food you can eat. However, the non-sushi items are only mediocre. Go elsewhere for noodles or rice entrees. Save room for as many special sushi rolls you can stomach - they are so exciting, it's worth it.
I dream of having a place like this come to my city, but alas, it would make me gain tremendous weight. Delicious vegan sushi to satisfy all of your wildest vegan-sushi dreams, and even to create new ones. So creative, it's awesome!
I've only tried the sushi there, but some of their other dishes seem like they'd be good. The NM roll and the Monkey Balls are my favs, but everything I've tried has been pretty good. I wish they would have a location closer in the city, but I'll make a point to go there whenever I find myself on the West side.
I was thrilled to find a restaurant with such a large selection of vegan sushi. I had the miso soup & salad to start then had the New Mexico roll (AMAZINGLY delicious tempura green chile), Caterpillar (beautiful and yummy) & cucumber roll (thought I could use something refreshing after the others but couldn't finish this - the others were too good and filling!). Service was great. Friendly and welcoming. I found out after I ate that they also offer brown rice which I would have preferred. It may have been listed on the menu and I just missed it.
THis isn't your typical Asian restaurant. It's more like a "diner" style but cute and clean! I don't understand all the coffee art on the walls though...
If you are living in or visiting the Albuquerque area then give this place a try. It is based on Japanese style food so you will find the usual sushi and such items on the menu. They also have bento boxes, soups, and salads. The prices are a bit high for the amount of food but this is what I expect for a vegan restaurant. They have veggie choices like portabello mushroom and the processed vegetable proteins like fake chicken, beef and shrimp. I rarely eat the processed stuff so I leave that up to you to try but the veggies were decent and the soup was just right.
Enjoy this place and let them know you want this to last by eating there.
My vegan spicy tuna cucumber roll was wonderful
Large selection,ended up with a lot of food! It's owned by Sushi King so they get it right! Even the dessert was tasty! Excellent service!
Really good food and lots of it. You will have leftovers. Love the Bento Boxes. Great service!!!
