「Soui Sùshí」

Sùshí is a type of cooking that is deeply rooted in everyday life in Taiwan, from celebrations to fast food. Despite its similar pronunciation to Japanese Sushi (raw fish and rice), Sùshí is well known as the Chinese-style vegetarian cuisine, and uses absolutely no animal products. Soui Sùshí is a food creation developed by Kyoto residing artist, Tomomi Matsunaga, who maintains the traditions and rules of Sùshí , and expands upon it by adding Japanese ingredients and her own originality in an exquisite, unique way.
The secret to Tomomi’s Soui Sùshí is in the way she expresses the individual beauty of the color, shape, taste, and nutrition of the ingredients to create her won world. In the contemporary busy world, Tomomi’s Soui Sùshí calms your soul, while cleansing your body from within.

Soui Sùshí’s Ingredients

材料Sùshí, which is rooted in Buddhist tradition, avoids meat, fish, and other animal products and uses ingredients that are kind to your body – mainly vegetables, mushrooms, and beans. Another basic rule is to avoid sanen (chicken, meat, and fish) and gokun (leeks, Chinese chives, garlic, shallots, and onions). These foods use soy-based products to mimic meat and seafood, similar to ganmodoki fried tofu fritters, offering something fun and interesting to Sùshí.

Cooking

Absolutely no animal products are used in Sùshí.
The spirit of Soui Sùshí is in the unique, skillful appearance.
