Jackfruit – The Wonder Fruit

One of our star ingredients in the seasonal specials is jackfruit. After months of developing recipes, chef Guy introduced the seasonal specials with BBQ jackfruit in early July. Jackfruit remains a rare treat in the U.S despite its popularity in its native Asia. The fruit brings multiple health benefits in addition to its aromatic, sweet flavor. Let's find out what lies behind the spiky skin with us!

Q&A with Chef Guy Vaknin

Beyond Sushi is always looking for ways to improve and expand. This spring, we're launching our new, extended menu with many new vibrant flavors and exciting dishes, including new wraps, rolls, dough pockets, salads, and noodle dishes. You can check out the new menu here.

Processed with VSCOcam with a9 preset

We've already debuted the new menu at our 14th Street location, as well as Chelsea Market, and will be extending to Midtown West in April. Also please note, the roll and piece of the month will not be available, as we are expanding new menu items for you to try.

All of our menu items are carefully and thoughtfully developed by our very own Chef Guy Vaknin and his wife / co-owner Tali Vaknin. To get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his genius thought process, we sat down for some Q&A with the chef himself: 

What inspired you to expand the menu at Beyond Sushi?

It’s been three years since we opened our first location in Union Square and we felt the need to revamp our menu and create new exciting dishes for people to try. We decided to offer additional hot menu items such as our signature soups that we used to offer only in the winter as well as dumplings and a variety of noodle salads. Essentially, we removed some of the least selling items, and replaced with some new, more interesting ones. Our menu was a bit hard to navigate through before. Now we have streamlined things so that there are starters and entrees – people will know what to order to make a full meal.

Where do you draw inspiration for your flavor profiles and combinations?

Our menu is eclectic. Chef Guy chose flavors that he has come across from over the years. His palette has evolved and therefore wanted to mix in more interesting ingredients and flavors into the menu.

The expanded menu has new items like dumplings and noodle salads. How were these recipes and menu items inspired?

We wanted to put our fun twist on a traditional items. We wanted to make them both fun and interesting and to be able to captivate a non-vegan audience with delicious vegan offerings.

Can you explain what a few of the ingredients used in some of the new menu items are, including green tea noodles, ponzu and kaffir lime leaves?

Ponzu is a citrus based sauce traditionally used in Japanese cuisine. It is tart with a watery consistency. 

Green tea noodles, otherwise known as soba noodles are made from buckwheat and wheat flour with the added ingredient of fresh green tea leaves. In Japan, they are considered a delicacy and only eaten on special occasions.

Kaffir lime is a citrus fruit native to tropical Asia. The leaves have a very pungent taste and are very commonly used in Thai, Indonesian, and Malaysian dishes providing a very aromatic and citrus flavor to dishes. Chef Guy brings in flavors stemming from various cultures, Korean, Mediterranean, Japanese etc. He enjoys manipulating the flavors and adding them to our signature menu items to have that added zest or pop of unusual but stimulating flavor combinations.

Where do you source your ingredients from?

Locally when possible – Good Water Farms, Union Square Market are some examples.

How long have you been working on creating these dishes?

Years – Since we opened in 2012.

Processed with VSCOcam with a8 preset

What is your goal with expanding the menu at Beyond Sushi?

To have more variety and offerings four our clients and to attract new customers as well. We are aiming for a broader but quality driven menu. When people hear the name Beyond Sushi, we want them to really think beyond the sushi rolls. What else do they offer? We are a health conscious eatery providing a unique twist on traditional items, making them unconventional and tasteful to the masses.

Of the new menu items, what are a few of your personal favorites?

I love everything that is new! There is something for everyone on the menu. For adults, kids, you name it. People can frequent Beyond Sushi at any one of our outposts and always have something unique to delve into.

You definitely don't want to miss our extended menu! Stop by our 14th Street location or Chelsea Market, and we will also be extended to Midtown West soon!

A Statement from Beyond Sushi on Our Products


To Our Loyal Customers:

It has come to our attention that imitation vegan sushi that either mimics or directly copies our products, names, and photos has been popping up on menus of establishments not affiliated with Beyond Sushi.

Every item at Beyond Sushi is made by hand with exceptional care, and our recipes were all thoughtfully developed by our very own Chef Guy Vaknin. We hold ourselves to a high standard of quality, and we want to be sure our customers know they’re getting true Beyond Sushi products, which are available at our 3 restaurant locations on 14th Street, West 56th Street in Midtown, and Chelsea Market.

7 Ways to Replace an Egg in Vegan Baking

Baking is one of life's simplest and best pleasures. What's more satisfying than creating something delicious and sharing it with the ones you love?

Transitioning to a vegan lifestyle means changing the way one cooks and bakes, and sometimes this requires simple swaps to make old recipes vegan-friendly.

Here at Beyond Sushi, we strive to help customers live their best vegan lives, so we're sharing some resources for vegan cooking and baking.  

Read on for some easy ways to replace eggs in your favorite baked goods! And give some of our delicious desserts a try next time you stop in!

1. Flax egg: 1 egg = 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water or non-dairy milk

Grind flax seed (or use pre-ground flax seed) and add to water. This works wonderfully in baked goods and adds a nutty flavor, as well as a good source essential omega-3 fatty acids.  Works well in almost all baked goods, including pancakes, cookies, muffins, cakes, brownies, and quick breads. 

2. Chia egg: 1 egg = 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water or non-dairy milk

Add chia seed to water and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before adding to baked goods. A congealing gel will form and hold baked goods together. Chia seeds are highly nutritious (packed with protein, fiber, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids). Chia eggs work well in nearly any baked good, including savory recipes like veggie burgers.

3. Applesauce: 1 egg = 1/4 cup applesauce

Appleasauce is a wonderful way to replace eggs in baking, and adds a nice moisture. Works well in cakes, muffins, and quick breads. 

4. Mashed bananas: 1 egg = 1/2 small mashed banana or 1/3 mashed large banana

Mash banana and add to recipe. Mashed bananas also add natural sweetness, and often a banana flavor. Works best in banana-focused recipes (like banana bread, other quick breads, cakes, and muffins).  

5. Canned pumpkin: 1 egg = 1/4 cup applesauce

Canned pumpkin is very moist and makes baked goods very tender. Works well in muffins, cakes, pancakes, quick breads, and some cookies. 

6. Silken Tofu: 1 egg = 1/4th cup blended silk

Blend tofu in a food processor or blender and add to baked goods. Silken tofu adds protein and calcium, and adds a lovely silken texture and moisture to your baked good. Tofu works wonderfully in cakes, brownies, muffins, and denser cookeies. 

7. Non-dairy yogurt: 1 egg = 1/4th cup yogurt

Adds a wonderful moisture and light, springy texture. Works excellent in quick breads, cakes, muffins, and chewy cookies.

Eating Your Way to a Healthy Skin

Summer days are here! Although you're getting plenty of vitamin D, be sure to keep your skin healthy and youthful. Sunscreen won't be the only thing you'll need for a healthy skin during summer. What you eat is also an important factor as well. And we have just the perfect vegan foods you will need to stay beautiful ☀️ Let's dive right in...


Fight those wrinkles, protect our skin from burns and dryness, and clear your complexion with these nutritious foods! 

We dice them, we slicSlow-Roasted-Tomatoes_@JuliesKitchene them, we toss them in our salads, we cook them in our most delicious pasta... What could it be?

Tomatoes! Eating tomatoes helps protect your skin from age-inducing free radicals because it contains antioxidant lycopene. We still recommend using sunscreen but if you happen to forget, studies have proven that tomatoes offer substantial protection against those harmful UV rays. Check out this easy D.I.Y. Lemon Tomato Mask that can treat acne, brighten skin, tame excess oil, and even soothe the skin. 

Not only are sweet potatoes delicious, but they are fully packed with vitamin C, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles by bolstering collagen in the skin. Eat more sweet potatoes and say good bye to those wrinkles! At Beyond Sushi, you can order the Sweet Tree Roll which includes sweet potato, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, and six-grain rice paired with a toasted cayenne sauce. 

Load up on leafy greens this summer because vegetables like spinach and collard greens lowers the risk of developing skin tumors. International Journal of Cancer published that research and claims that eating them reduces the tumors by over 40 percent59ea109362f1a50f_unnamed-3.xxxlarge. Eating spinach will keep your skin cells healthy and repair wounds. Click here for some delicious and creative vegetarian dishes using spinach! 

Cucumbers can improve your skin quality and appearance in a short amount of time because it contains a mineral called silica. Silica helps your body produce more collagen to prevent wrinkles and keep your skin firm and supple. Cucumbers will help brighten your skin and fight off the unwanted acne. Cucumber face masks are a popular way to improve your skin, check this out for D.I.Y.  face masks

Get crazy for carrots because the vitamin A and other antioxidants in carrots can benefit your skin, hair, and health. Carrots are a perfect snack to keep in your beach cooler this summer because according to the National Institutes of Health, beta-carotene has been proven to protect people with sensitive skin from sunburns. Carrots also repair skin tissue and heal sunburns. Drinking its juice helps get rid of blemishes and scars, and acts as a natural sun block. Vitamin C is also found in carrots, which ultimately maintains your skin's elasticity. It helps prevent wrinkles, locks the process of aging, and corrects pigmentation and uneven skin tones. Definitely a great power food! Try this smoothie recipe that guarantees gorgeous skin! 

Want to keep your skin smooth and silky? Citrus fruits are packed with vitamins and nutrients to help keep the wrinkles at bay. Citrus fruits with thick skin such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes display a plethora of flavonoids and a huge helping of vitamin C. They have also been proven to help prevent cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and treat headaches. This summer, stay active and stay hydrated with these fruity drink recipes!6a0148c717d3e7970c01a3fd3c4a44970b-800wi

Let's move on to sweeter things along with a clear complexion. Cocoa powder in dark chocolate contains anti-aging antioxidants known as flavonoids. Not only does chocolate help keep a youthful appearance but it also maintains a natural healthy glow. It has also been proven to prevent cancer and heart disease. Here's a win-win recipe, get glowing skin while you indulge in chocolate barks!

Summer Promotion at Beyond Sushi



Have you started planning the weekend picnic in the park yet?

With many fantastic parks in the city, what's a better way than chilling on the grass while soaking up the warm sun. And as an attempt to make your weekend even better, we're having a little special promotion this summer! The rolls platter will be $50 instead of $65 if you place the order for weekend pickup at our Midtown location (which is only 3 blocks away from Central Park). Also, please have the orders in by every Friday.

The promotion will last through the summer.

Launching our partnership with Postmates!

What does this mean to you?

It means that you now can order Beyond Sushi for delivery even if you live outside of our regular delivery zone (with a small fee)!
