Sushi Counter

Whilst looking for healthy sushi options I could veganize, I came across Sushi Counter which had vegan options already on the menu! They have many branches in the UAE and I visited the one at The Dubai Mall. Sushi Counter is located in the food court on the lower ground floor. I browsed the menu, ordered and the food was delivered to my table.

The menu is great as it has a section for ‘Vegetarian and Vegan’. However it does not clearly state which options are completely vegan, but does include a list of ingredients. Make sure that you stay clear of anything with yoghurt or egg in it, and you can always ask the friendly staff for clarification on any ingredients.

I ordered the Sun Dried Tomato and Basil roll which had the strongest flavour of them all. Another one of my favourites was the avocado roll, which was a large slice of avocado on top of rice. The creaminess of the avocado was divine.

The best roll of them all had to be the Sweet and spicy veggie hijiki roll which consisted of avocado, cucumber, carrot, crispy onion and sweet chilli sauce. I have never had crispy onions on sushi before and they really made the roll pop. I would go back again and again for this roll.   

I also tried a Mango Roll and Dal Roll. Both were beautifully presented but lacking in flavour which I found surprising as Mango usually has a strong flavour.

Sushi Counter also have the classic vegan friendly items on their menu such as edamame, seaweed and salad. The prices are quite decent with 6 sushi rolls at around 18aed.

I would definitely recommend you visit Sushi Counter if you are looking for a quick sushi lunch with a twist. If you have tried any other sushi places with great vegan options then let us know.
