Red White Japanese Restaurant
Where we've featured it
When a restaurant uses the word “vegan” in its name, you kind of expect it to feature all sorts of plant-based stuff that may or may not actually work as substitutes for pulled pork. That’s not the case at Red White Japanese Vegan, though. This fast-casual Newbury Street spot doesn’t try any tofu alchemy to make fake cheese, it just has a small menu of rice and noodle bowls that happen to be vegan. And more importantly, they’re also good. They only have about five or six bowls and you can make your own if you want, but leave it up to the pros when you go the first time - order the spicy udon and definitely add the miso avocado.
Red White is a new place to get fast-casual bowls on Newbury Street. If you think we’ve been getting a lot of those lately, you’re right, but this one’s a little different with its meatless, Japanese menu.
