There aren't many places who do vegetarian sushi anywhere. We thought they would serve some sushi with fish also because there were some fisheaters in our group. They weren't disappointed at all, on the contrary, they left as happy as the vegetarians.

Highly recommend El Buda Profano if you like Sushi and are looking for a nice fresh meal for lunch or dinner. The sushi was delicious and so was the gyozas! Service is also excellent.

The sushi was so fresh and delicious! We had 3 platters (only one at first but kept wanting more!) and tempura vegetables. Great value and even non-vegetarians would enjoy. We highly recommend!
