There were 3 different kinds of vushi on the menu: Alaya, Shakti and Kali, both Alaya and Kali are raw. Alaya is a carb-free vushi, made of romain, alfalfa sprouts, cucumber, carrot and avocado. The ‘rice’ was made of crushed almonds and walnuts. Shakti was made of enoki, marinated portobello, french bean, rocket, red pepper and whole grain rice. Kali was made of srouted hummus, avocado, baby spinach, cucumber and brown rice.
There were some fermented red cabbage pickles and fresh cucumber on the side, served with wasabi and soy sauce. The texture of the seaweed was like jelly-candy, i don’t love grains very much thus I pretty enjoyed Alaya vushi which was made of crushed almonds and nuts. There was nothing ‘wow’ on the taste side, but it is indeed a very healthy snack – you should care about what do you put in your body.
