It’s April!

The first of April brings such a beautiful day in New York City. The sun is out with warmer temperatures. Flowers are about to bloom in the Union Square park. One can only hope this forever winter is about to end! Why not start your April right with our new roll and piece?

Read away to see what we have this month! Mushroom fans will definitely be in love 😉

It’s Kale Time

Hi vegheads, 

Many apologies for the late announcement of the March roll and piece on the blog. The roll and piece have been in our stores for a few days already. We were just so busy with the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival last weekend. To sum everything up shortly: It was an amazing event with amazing people! We were so overwhelmed with all the positive feedback and support from everyone. Our entire menu was sold out both days! We can’t wait for next year’s event. Shout out to the organizers who put together a very well-planned event.  

Back to our roll and piece announcement, if you haven’t had a chance to stop by, here they are. Spoiler alert: There’s a kale theme going on here.

For the Roll of the Month, we have black rice, dehydrated kale, roasted sunchoke, and marinated carrots. The roll is topped with Cajun kale chip and sweet green peas mint sauce. The kale chip has a tiny bit of heat just enough to spice it up. 

If you’re not familiar with sunchoke, this root vegetable looks like ginger with the taste of potato. Sunchoke (a.k.a Jerusalem artichoke) is a great food to prevent colon cancer. Other than that, it helps lower blood pressure and decrease blood cholesterol. There are tons of health benefits of these little guys that we will cover in our future blog posts. Stay tuned for more!

Ingredients of this lovely piece are noted in the photo! And as always, deliciousness is guaranteed.

Now that you know what we have for March, come by our stores and check them out! They will be in store until the end of month. 

The Mobile Vegans!

Hey friends,

Long time no see. We hope you’re still doing great in this freezing snowy winter. Just bundle up, drink water, and patiently wait until Spring!

Anyhow, as the title reveals, we want to share three cool vegan apps/ websites that we’ve found recently. Hopefully, these will make you veg-life a lot easier.

  1. Is It Vegan?

Simply perfect app to use while browsing grocery stores’ shelves.  You just need to scan the UPC code on a product, this app automatically analyzes the ingredients and let you know if the product is vegan or not. There are two versions available: One is free and the full version is $4.99. A little bird also told us that 25% of profit of ad money in this app is donated to help animals.

2. Vegan Food is Everywhere.

VFE is a world map with places that have delicious vegan food. Yes, you read it right – A WORLD MAP. VFE is a crowd-sourcing website, which allows anyone to add food items to the list. Another great thing about this map is that it includes vegan dishes at regular restaurants or how to make your orders vegan. This makes easy when you dine out with non-vegans. As far as we know, this map is free and open to everyone.

3. Animal-Free.

This is a pocket guide that lists common and hidden animal ingredients. Animal-Free is a little bit similar to Is It Vegan?, but if you really want to investigate every ingredient, this is a great tool.

Do we miss any other great apps? Let us know in the comment. We’d love to hear your suggestions!

P.S.: Don’t forget NYC Vegetarian Food Festival is next weekend  TOMORROW! 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Metropolitan Pavilion. See you there!

Valentine’s Day is Almost Here…

The Haricat and February Roll of the Month.

To end the night on a sweet note, a black bean sweet potato brownie and chocolate coconut oats round make a great pair of desserts. And Valentine’s Day wouldn’t complete without a handwritten note, right? No worries because we’re sending an exclusive Valentine’s Day card with the package. We can guarantee that you won’t find the card anywhere else!

The whole package is $41, which is a pretty great deal in this expensive city. Hurry up and place your order with us today 😉 One more note, this package is only valid for takeouts and delivery (within our range).

Hello February!

It’s official. The first month of January has gone in a blink of an eye. Crazy, isn’t it?

Now is the time to start a fun February with us. We have some great new things at Beyond Sushi this month for you!

First, we’re so excited and happy to introduce the new roll and piece of the month. They’re both very flavorful with a hint of curry and roasted balsamic-marinated beets (don’t like beets? this may change your mind!).

Image

The roll of the month includes black rice, chayote, avocado, roasted balsamic-marinated beets and topped with lemon-infused beluga lentils. The February roll comes with curried cauliflower purée.

The piece of the month has black rice and curried cauliflower. The sauce is roasted balsamic-marinated beets. This does not only look good but also tastes delicious! It’s packed with protein from the lentils and plenty of nutrition from the beets and cauliflower.

In other news, we plan to feature and give more information about our ingredients. Therefore, we pick Beet as our Veg Star of the Month! In the next 27 days, we’ll be posting facts and interesting information about Beets on our social media pages, so keep checking on us. It’d be fun!

Last but not least, beet will be the topic for our brand new “Cooking with Beyond Sushi” YouTube series! Beets may not be the most beloved ingredients (most of us just have no clue how to deal with them), but we hope to give beets the love they deserve this month.

This is all the news for now. We don’t want you to get overwhelming. We’ll be updating the blog next week with more news at Beyond Sushi. Until then, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube for more actions. Or give us a shout out on Google+ 🙂

See ya!

Happy 2014!


Jan 2014 ROTM-01
We can’t believe 2013 has gone like a blink of an eye. It was a great year for us as we received tremendous support from our customers and as we expanded to catering service. We hope that you also had an awesome year too. If not, just believe that everything will be okay and keep your head up!

For 2014, our first priority is still to bring you the freshest and most delicious food. If you’re not happy with our food, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Your honest opinions and feedbacks help us improve every day.

In the new year, we also want to bring Beyond Sushi to more and more people. Keep checking with us for news and events! A new website is also in the work with a purpose of creating a seamless experience for our customers. Launch date is still up in the air, but we’re shooting for late January or early February.

And if you love our food, write us a review on Google here as we’d love to show up more on Google search. We’ll be eternally grateful!

Last but not least, have you noticed that we have a new roll and piece of the month? If you’re out celebrating 2014, swing by our stores to try them. Let us know what you think too!
