Time Out says

From the creation of a Canadian first with the plant-based sushi of his beloved Sushi Momo to the galaxy of Mexican and Japanese flavour combinations on offer here at Casa Kaizen, there’s no doubt in our minds that chef Christian Ventura is this city’s most innovative vegan pioneer to date. Whether it’s a nori tostada with Ventura’s infamous konjac-based ‘no-tuna’ that’s bursting with umami, crispy flautas served with mouthwatering black garlic cashew cream, or tacos of calamari mushrooms we can’t get enough of, Casa Kaizen’s food is equal parts plant-based, game-changing and unforgettable.

Two tortillas with guajillo sauce, curried potatoes, harissa feta, sofrito aïoli, garlic-mint crema, fried leek
