Vegan friendly Japanese food

Masu Sushi offers a number of vegan(izable) items. Make sure to ask for veg food explicitly so that they can sub out non-veg items.

Some of the offerings include agedashi tofu, salads, miso soup, grilled vegetables, soba noodles, tempura (vegan), and sushi.

Special vegan menu. Staff is knowledgable about what's vegan. I've been to the NE and MoA location. Lots of great vegan options I haven't found at other sushi places. On top of that, it's pretty darn good. Service was pretty good at both locations. Pretty quick, too. Employees are pretty good at being attentive but knowing to stay out of the way so you can enjoy the folks you came in with.

this was by far one of the best meals, and service that i've had in awhile. my sister and i are both vegans, and we went out for a belated work-holiday dinner on a monday. the restaurant was only 1/3 filled, ,and that can be dicey- either your servers are slacking due to the lack of customers, or they give you their full attention; tonight we got full attention. first and foremost, i L-O-V-E when a place has either clearly marked veg food, or a separate menu, and masu has a separate vegan menu that actually goes as far to asterisk items with miso, because some vegans may find miso unacceptable due to the live yeast- holy crap. i for one am a miso loving mother f***er, but i think that goes to show how far they are willing to go to please all preferences. they also have an extensive gluten-free menu as well.
my sis and i got 2 grasshoppers due to how awesome they are, a caterpillar, tempura appetizer, ginger chile soba noodles, and robata eggplant. the eggplant is a must for all eggplant-o-phobes. it's smoky, crispy, creamy, and meaty-mushroomy heaven. yes, it's 3.50 for 1 skewer, but you can also pay 4$ for a skewer of crappy fried pickles at a not-so-good place down the road, so i'll gladly fork over my money for these. i also really loved my ginger chile soba noodles; they were salty, sweet, and lightly spicy. my favorite though, after the eggplant, was the vegan grasshopper. not only can you get vegan tempura (!) here, you can get a sushi roll stuffed with avocado and tempura asparagus thats been freaking rolled in crushed wasabi peas- wasabi peas!
as far as price goes, our table of 3 had 5 premium cocktails, 5 sushi rolls, 2 apps, noodles, and a few sides (hell yes we can eat) and before tip we only racked up $140. i say only, because i've done just as much damage at other sushi joints without nearly as much fun food to sift through, sans drinks.
the atmosphere is fine, our server was on point with vegan tips and recommendations, and kept what usually turns into a hot mess of a table, nice and tidy the entire time.
