House of Vegano soft opened at 1990 Central Ave. on Friday, May 5, to the delight of plant-based foodies across the Bay.
Owner and head chef Thalia Tatham traded her Frida Khalo mural for a massive painting of her own face, which decorates one wall of the new restaurant’s dining room. House of Vegano's new Central Avenue space boasts a much higher capacity than its now-closed flagship location, plus a few bar seats so guests can watch their sushi being rolled.
Tatham debuted her vegan sushi concept inside of Body Electric’s now-closed facility at 655 31st St. S a little over a year ago, and announced the opening of her second, much larger location, just a few months ago.
In addition to a spread of plant-based sushi rolls loaded with fresh fruit and veggies, this plant-based restaurant also dishes out ramen, soy protein-filled dumplings, and nigiri topped with "spicy toona" and "sckallop truffle." Its speciality rolls typically run between $20-$24 each.
House of Vegano’s new Central Avenue space is now open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 3 p.m.-6 p.m. on Mondays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 3 p.m.-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, noon-6 p.m. on Sundays and remains closed Tuesday-Thursday.
