Vegan in New York: Franchia

by Kortney Campbell on January 19, 2012

Vegan SushiI just want to take a minute to talk to you about sushi.  This was the last thing I gave up before going vegan and if I told you I didn’t miss it, I’d be lying.  Sure, there will always be the “veggie roll”.  It is usually the same at every place and every once and a while, I may even have a pretty decent one.  That doesn’t make me miss the real thing any less though.

Franchia’s is an “Asian Fusion” restaurant on Park Avenue.  They specialize in mostly Korean dishes but have the best sushi I have encountered.  The best part?  It’s vegan.  Yes, you heard me…vegan sushi.  My life is complete.

I’m not going to ramble on and on about these 12 small pieces of heaven that they call the “Franchia Roll”, filled with avocado and vegan crab meat.  However, I am going to highly suggest that you try this place out if you are in New York.  You won’t regret it.

Have you ever been to Franchia or had vegan sushi?

I've been vegan since December 2007, but have loved to cook & create pretty things since before I can remember. I started Vegan Housewives because I don't think you have to give up the joys of food when going vegan!

    That sushi looks amazing, do you think you could post the recipe for vegan crab sushi or maybe suggest a place here?

    We have a couple of sushi recipes in the loop but haven’t tried it with vegan crab yet. Maybe we can add that to our to do list! We have yet to find crab sushi in the Tampa area, however we are on the lookout!

    I have to know what vegan crab consists of! My fave (non-Vegan but I’m sure they have veggie rolls) sushi places in the Tampa area are Sushi Rock in St. Pete and Samurai Blue in Tampa. Samurai Blue has this crab roll called the Blue Moon that is to die for. If you can get them to make that Vegan, I will try it! ;)

    Not sure how they do it but here is what it appears to be made of: Also- Hooks is one of our favorites here…The veggie crunch roll is amazing. The new Rollboto place is pretty fun too- the brown rice option is great!
