Meat lovers who cannot do without a slab of beef or a generous piece of pork chop in a meal simply find it difficult to fathom what on earth vegetarians eat to keep them happy and satisfied. Thank God there are now so many options for vegetarians — so much so that they can now even choose what cuisine they want for lunch and what’s for dinner.
For Japanese food, Red Kimono has made a Vegetarian Menu available for vegetarians who are craving for something delightfully Japanese. A walk through Red Kimono’s Vegetarian Menu allows one to discover that a vegetarian diet is not boring at all. Instead, it comes in a spectrum of colors, flavors and textures other than just salads, vegetables and tofu.
Red Kimono consciously allotted a space in their menu for vegetarian dishes to cater to those leaning towards healthier food options. And since they know that not all vegetarians subscribe to the same eating philosophy, they offer their guests the option to customize the dishes to their preferences, whether they are lacto-vegetarians, lacto-ovo-vegetarians or total vegans.
Red Kimono carries a huge selection of dishes, including one of their best sellers, the Layered Spinach and Tofu (served with sweet miso paste), as well as main courses such as Veggie Kyuri Kani Salad (with iceberg lettuce, cucumber, veggie crab strips, and vegetarian mayonnaise),Veggie Yakitori (vegetarian version of the famous yakitori) and Veggie Teppan (spicy chunks of “mock chicken” served on a sizzling plate with with assorted vegetables), which are vegetarian versions of Japanese favorites which the chefs have crafted with mock meat and rich servings of vegetables.
For sushi, Red Kimono offers a full-blown array that goes beyond the usual cucumber-filled rolls. There’s Jumbo Tofu Roll (which is fully loaded with shiitake mushrooms, spring onion, carrots and tofu and served with special soy syrup), Veggie Surprise (mango, avocado, cream cheese and asparagus rolled into one), Veggie Kani Shot (two fully loaded pieces of sushi bursting with veggie kani salad), and Crunchy Veggie Maki (filled with mock crab salad).
A selection of vegetarian sushi platters is also available for dine-in, takeout and delivery.
