A new Asian fusion restaurant opened in East Sacramento recently, and they’ve got lots of vegan options. Origami Asian Grill offers several made-to-order dishes for which you can pick your protein, and one of the protein choices is marinated tofu.
I stopped by for lunch a couple of days ago, and after a few moments spent contemplating the menu, I decided on the rice bowl. I asked for brown rice, marinated tofu, a vegetable mixture containing green beans, corn, and peppers, and the fermented chili miso sauce. It was a simple but thoroughly satisfying dish.
I also ordered the sunomono, an appetizer made of cucumber slices, garlic, chili, and sesame seeds. It was the perfect accompaniment to the rice bowl.
Other Origami entrées that can be veganized are the ramen (ask for the vegetarian broth), banh mi sandwich, cold noodle salad, and mixed baby green salad. All three of the sauce choices are vegan – charred onion glaze and house hot sauce, in addition to the fermented chili miso.
