Vegan Options (?)

I ordered fries, plain edamame and cucumber avocado sushi. Everything was as you would expect, nothing fantastic but all tasty.

A note on the service and vegan options:

The in-person menu labeled vegetarian options; however, they didn’t seem confident in understanding veganism. They appeared to have a few rolls and appetizers, but I was unable to confirm.

For example, I asked if the vegetable tempura was vegan, and the response was, “Uh, I don’t think so because it’s fried?”. Maybe they meant it was due to a shared fryer, maybe the batter had eggs, but I was hesitant to trust the vague answer. I asked my friend later if she noticed that they seemed annoyed at my vegan questions and order, and she agreed. Who knows? To be fair, I’m shy, so I didn’t push and stuck with safe options. I will also give them the benefit of the doubt since I think they possibly were having issues considering we had three different waiters (yet none came by that often).

Few Affordable Vegan Delights

When my sister and I visited San Diego, we decided to try Sushi Deli 3 based on a local's recommendation. We were pleasantly surprised by the affordable prices.

I'm going to focus on the vegan dishes I ordered:
Rice $2.25 - tasted fresh and portioned well.
Edamame Lemon Pepper $5.25 - had a fantastic zing to it.
Green Tea $1.99 - a simple but refreshing choice.
The highlight was the Beehive Roll $7.75 - I would order this again in a heartbeat!
INSIDE: Shishito pepper, avocado, gobo carrot, cucumber & asparagus
TOP: Fresh jalapeños, lemon slices w/ Yuzu citrus sauce

My sushi-loving sister thoroughly enjoyed her rolls too. The service was both friendly and attentive. Overall, our experience at Sushi Deli was marked by its creative and inexpensive dishes/rolls. However, I can't help but wish they offered more vegan rolls on their menu. With the abundance of produce they have available for other items, I believe they could truly get creative and cater to the diverse and growing demand for vegan options.

Pros: Price, Few vegan options, Portion

Cons: Few vegan options
