Yu-Or-Mi Sushi is a new vegan-friendly restaurant in the Las Vegas Arts District. With fresh, flavorful vegan sushi, it debuts with our nod to being one of the best spots for vegan sushi in Las Vegas.
The hip sushi restaurant prides itself on creativity and art.
“Making sushi, and cooking in general is truly an art form,” says Melissa Robinson, owner. “Everything from the choice of ingredients, to how the flavors compliment each other, and of course creating dishes that not only taste great but look beautiful is what sets us apart.”
Las Vegas Vegan-Friendly Sushi Restaurant: Yu-Or-Mi Sushi Bar
Vegan sushi at Yu-Or-Mi
The vegan dishes at Yu-Or-Mi Sushi bar are indeed beautiful and flavorful. The secret vegan menu includes eats like the vegan inari roll. It also has other traditional veggie rolls.
But, Chef “V” Virakone Vongphachanh, doesn’t stop there. If you ask, Chef will whip up some other rolls, too.
For example, we got a with meticulously placed onions, a delicate sake-poached tomato and roasted maitake mushrooms. It comes finished with a drizzle of a black vinegar reduction.
There’s also a roll with seasonal pickles and asparagus and filled with avocado he does.
“It varies on what inspires him at the moment and ingredients on hand,” says Robinson.
Other options include grilled asparagus with braised tofu, roasted shisito peppers, crispy Brussels sprouts and a veggie platter.
Finally, there is a braised tofu salad to enjoy.
In addition, most of the menu can be transformed vegan, including the yakisoba and stone rice bowls.
Robinson is also considering adding an “Oma-vegan” omakase to the menu. This would allow vegan guests to put their trust into Chef V to create a coursed meal.
“We have lots of fresh produce on site, a variety of vegan sauces and ingredients to make unique, fresh and delicious dishes for our guests,” she says. “This is something we’ve been generally recommending to our vegan guests since we’ve opened. So far it’s been a hit. Our chef loves the creative freedom and opportunity to make new dishes on the fly.”
