Craving Japanese eats and live in Southwest Las Vegas? Volcano Grille is a fast-casual teppanyaki restaurant with a build-your-own dish menu. Bonus: they serve vegan Japanese food in Las Vegas.
Rewind nearly a decade ago to when Chef Ken and Chef Fitz joined forces, opening their first location in town. Today, Volcano Grille lives in a new location, but continues to serve up eats that gained a loyal following.
Head to the counter and choose from either a Bowl or Bento Box which comes complete with deliciously grilled tofu (let your non-vegan friends know you’ve got your protein sorted) with Chef Ken’s secret seasoning (no, he won’t divulge what it’s made with, but you’ve got to try it!).
Volcano Grille’s vegan options also include plenty of vegan sides and salads.
Looking to add some greens? Pick from smokey grilled veggies, seaweed salad or the classic Japanese ginger-dressed salad. White or brown rice are available as sides but we suggest giving your meal an extra flavor kick with the yakisoba noodles or ask for the grilled rice, vegan style.
Now, for the main eats — you’ve got the choice of going for a vegan bowl or vegan bento. The Bowl includes two servings of grilled tofu, rice or noodles and your choice of sides. The Bento Box also includes two servings of tofu with two sides and a salad.
Our recommendation? Opt for the Bento Box to load up on your veggies. We like to build ours with the grilled tofu, grilled veggies, seaweed salad and ginger green salad. To make it extra filling, we add a side of grilled rice, vegan-style.
Once you’ve ordered, head to the sauce bar next to the register. Some of the sauces are sweet, some are spicy (Hello, Hot Lava!) and all but the creamy options (Wasabi, Yummy, and Hot Magma) are vegan.

Kathryn Hartwig is a senior writer for Vegans, Baby. She decided to go vegan almost eight years ago while searching for the perfect diet to compliment her role as a professional dancer. After experimenting with multitudes of fads, she finally found a lifestyle that turned out to be so much more than just a diet. She settled in Vegas with her husband/photographer Daniel, and puppy, Layla, after traveling the world on cruise ships and living in New York City. The family recently welcomed the birth of their first child, a true vegan baby.
