With flavors inspired by India, Thailand, and Malaysia, Tava Kitchen is a rapidly growing in the Bay Area. It’s a casual South Asian concept bringing approachable South Asian cuisine straight to SOMA. The delicious restaurant boasts ample choices for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets.

Shizen Vegan Sushi Bar & Izakaya
At first glance, this stylish izakaya and sushi bar could be just another sushi spot amongst many around our neighborhood. However, they have a major culinary twist: everything on the menu is vegan. All of their specialty rolls are innovative, delectable, and somehow, still reasonably priced. Arrive before 6pm for dinner to minimize your wait time and to try their gluten free vegetarian ramen!
