Like so many vegan finds, I just stumbled on this one. Attending a conference where lunch break came and I suddenly found myself alone, I went out prowling. Saw an Asian place - a good bet for vegan cuisine.
Hello Ninja features sushi rolls and grilled Japanese main dishes. I tried to experience both sides, and the menu made it easy with little leaf symbols alongside vegetarian dishes.

I can recommend the asparagus sushi rolls, expertly made with sticky rice complimenting crispy thin spears of kelly green asparagus.
And for the hot dish, you can’t beat the hibachi noodles. A bed of staming semolina noodles topped with savory stir fried onion, cabbage and bell peppers.
The service was excellent. It should be noted I tend to drive my servers mad with numerous questions and trips to the kitchen to check ingredients and prep procedures. If I ever get famous, I’ll no doubt have one of those reputations that make an establishment dread my appearance for this reason, but I am a good tipper. I’ll be back to Hello Ninja to try the teriyaki tofu and the vegetable fried rice, and I’ll bring a few extra bucks to make my server not cry in her miso over so many questions.
