427 E Michigan Ave, Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, 49001

Serves meat, vegan options available. Sushi restaurant but with vegan options from appetizers to rolls to sharing plates: vegan appetizers are edamame, chilled marinated tofu, and mushroom medley; vegan salads are house salad, kimchi & rice salad, and seaweed salad. There are 6 or so vegan signature deluxe rolls, and you could substitute for brown rice. Aside from the signature rolls, there are basic rolls like cucumber roll and avocado roll. A hibachi veggie platter comes with rice (steamed or stir fried), grilled vegetables, tempura fried sweet potato (may be shared fryer), and terriyaki fried tofu - ask if uses butter in cooking or not. Housed in a repurposed train building. Open Mon-Thu 11:30am-10:00pm, Fri-Sat 11:30am-12:00am, Sun 11:30am-9:00pm.

delicious fusion sushi and hibachi - Edit

While the options here might not be as healthy as one typically thinks of sushi as (tempura sweet potato, anyone? deep fried terriyaki tofu?) it certainly is tasty! The waiters were very good about letting us know what was/wasn't vegan (the miso soup is not vegan) and also good at explaining how to order, what comes in an order, etc. Presentation is often very important to me when it comes to food and there is no question that this place knows what's up. The food is so pretty I almost didn't want to eat it! But then I immediately did and loved every bite. We got sharing plate appetizers of edamame (with some kind of delicious large flake salt) and the mushroom medley. For entrees we shared the hibachi veggie plate (a HUGE portion) that came with rice (you choose fried or steamed), terriyaki fried tofu, grilled veggies, and tempura sweet potato. We also got the boogie veggie signature roll that came with radish sprouts, cucumber, avocado, kampyo, tempura sweet potato, and maru dressing (a sweet dipping sauce). There were so many vegan rolls it was hard to choose! You can also sub brown rice in the rolls for $1 extra. The interior is really nice as well with a repurposed feel to it next to the train tracks with vaulted ceilings, natural lighting, and different levels. They also offer a selection of special teas and cocktails (I got their house blend of green tea and my mom got some sort of strawberry basil lemonade cocktail).

Pros: the food is quite tasty, presentation is beautiful, knowledgeable wait staff

Cons: Most stuff has deep-fried aspects, Price can rack up fairly quickly
