Various thoughts that go hopping down the bunny trail. Now I am more bunny like than ever. Vegan adventures have begun.

We had lunch today Ra Sushi in Harbor East. I was hoping a Japanese inspired restaurant would have several vegan options. They really did not have that many. Several vegetable appetizers are cooked in garlic butter. I am thinking that is not very authentic. I started with a Strawberry Sakitini. Sake is used in place of the vodka. I am not a big sake fan, but I thought the strawberry might over power the sake taste, it didn't. If you like sake, this might work for you.
For the an appetizer, I had the Miso Soup. It tasted like it was made with a chicken broth. That is okay for me, because miso has a lot of good health qualities. The soup was very tasty once I got to eat it. The bowl was not very stable and my first bowl was dumped on the table and floor before I had any. Tommy had a shrimp appetizer that was in an unstable dish that kept tipping over. Function should outweigh aesthetics at a restaurant.
I had some grilled vegetables next. They were are mix of sweet potatoes, asparagus, onions, bell peppers and Japanese eggplant. I had eaten most of the dish before I remembered to take the picture.
I finished off with the Tempura Vegetable Sushi. This was very nice with a mix of sweet potato, asparagus and eggplant for the filing.
