San Juan Vegan Eats with Asian Flavors
When I find a place that has Vegan options in Puerto Rico I feel need to share it with you so you can help me spread the word.
I shared on my personal blog part of the awesome experience I had a few days ago during a business lunch at SOGO Asian Bistro in San Juan.
The next day I took my family for lunch and here is a quick review of the delicious and well prepared meal we enjoyed.
Fast Service with a Smile
We got there during the lunch hour rush which seemed pretty packed. As the patrons left to get back to their duties, we sat and enjoyed the rest of our meal.
That said if you want a good meal at a great value and don’t have more than an hour for a lunch break, the food is served in a very timely manner.
Vegan Asian Appetizers
We started our meal when the owner Kahoo, (a good friend of mine) recommended ordering sautéed vegetables as a side and some spring rolls. They were both great options.
We also started off with some Jasmine tea to set a relaxing tone to our lunch.
Vegan Asian Entrees
When I visit a restaurant with Vegan options, I usually ask for as many vegan food items as I can fit in my stomach (I hope my personal trainer is not reading this).
I ordered a bento box which included the following:
- Salad with Ginger Dressing
- Fried Vegetable Rice
- Sautéed Vegetables
- Veggie Sushi Roll
For my daughter (and me) I ordered fried tofu with black mushrooms and Lucy ordered a few sushi vegetable rolls that where all delicious.
After our entrees, we had dessert which were Lychee Fruit in a cute martini glass.
Overall the meal was great and very tasty; something difficult for many regular restaurants when they prepare vegan options.
I am so thankful for Kahoo and how he went the extra mile to cater to our lifestyle, the attention to detail he paid to Daniela, so we could have one of the best meals in a long time.
If you are near San Juan and you’re seeking some vegan eats with an Asian, twist feel free to stop by SOGO Asian Bistro.

Oh!!! We actually went here! It is really really good! Right next to my house too! 🙂 Saludos Veglatino!
Hola Maria! What we loved the most about the place besides the food was the service and the attention to detail provided for our daughter. Kahoo, the owner, was ending every sentence with, “Y para Daniela?” Which to me is important along with having really good veggie rolls. We are close to Ikebana in Isla Verde, but their tofu is a hit or miss. Raul went two days back to back and he says the food was spot on with flavor and service.
Oh, that’s so sweet! Same thing happen when we took my parents. It’s great! We love their veggie rolls too. 🙂
