Sticky Rice, with four locations including Aliceanna Street in Baltimore, has been named by PETA as one of the top 10 restaurants for vegan sushi, taking the No. 8 spot.
PETA was impressed with Stick Rice for offering two types of tofu-based sushi as well as a dozen sushi dishes featuring vegetables, running the gamut, PETA said, from the Dirty South (vegan tempura fried sweet potato and sesame seeds) to the Hot Hippy (spicy marinated tofu, scallions, peanuts, cucumbers, and carrots).
"PETA salutes Sticky Rice for offering creative sushi that is as delicious as it is kind to animals," said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman, in a press statement announcing the vegan sushi list.
The top-ranking vegan sushi in North American, PETA said, was at Loving Vegan in Albuquerque, N.M. See the whole list here.
