Matthew Kenney to Launch Vegan Sushi Pop-Up in San Francisco This August
Matthew Kenney Cuisine will soon launch a Japanese Sushi pop-up called Woodblock, which will operate out of BAIA. Woodblock is a collaboration between celebrity chef Matthew Kenney and Kyle and Tracy Vogt, that is set to open on August 1.
While the BAIA team is excited to serve San Francisco with plant-based Italian food, there is a strong demand for vegan sushi and Kenney intends to address it. Woodblock, a plant-based Japanese concept offering a select assortment of sushi rolls along with vegetables and bowls, will present innovative variations on traditional dishes. A few of the highlights include Asparagus Tempura,Truffle Explosion Roll (with cucumber, marinated shiitake mushrooms and truffle aioli), Spicy Tuna Roll (ahimi, cucumber, and avocado) and a Katsu Curry Bowl.
Woodblock will be available for takeout and delivery for a limited time. The address is 300 Grove St, San Francisco, CA 94102.
Mohini, a born and raised vegetarian from Chicago, initially went vegan when faced with a health issue, but stayed vegan for the animals. Whole food plant-based eating (inspired by traditional Indian culture) is her optimal diet. An advocate for mental health and lifestyle changes, she has a degree in Health Sciences from DePaul University.
