COFU Banner "Pioneering a delicious and healthy new restaurant"

Sushi-loving vegans and ocean life lovers, rejoice!

When you think of traditional vegan sushi, your mind may be drawn to the standard cucumber roll many sushi restaurants and grocery stores have to offer. Don’t get us wrong—we can’t get enough of these rolls—but there is a new vegan sushi options out there today that will transform your entire sushi experience.Beyond the standard cucumber rolls, COFU is dedicated to perfecting the craft of making vegan sushi—infusing strong Japanese umami flavors into ingredients. Our Tuna is made from Jackfruit as well as Carrots and Konjac for the Salmon. These flavors combine for a seriously delicious and satisfying meal.

About Us

Akiko Otsuka, Founder

Founder - Akiko Otsuka

Cofu Pressed Sushi, has operated as a take-out spot near the entrance to Granville Island since fall 2021. COFU has retooled its concept to now offer a solely alcohol free drink experience, while offering patrons a new conception and evolution in tasty, innovative, and a revitalized beverage experience to accompany their healthy sushi supper.Located at 1833 Anderson Street, Cofu began offering an easily customized mix-and-match pressed sushi experience, melding plant based ingredients with black rice and original sauces.

Founder Akiko Otsuka opened COFU’s first shop in 2021, almost one year after COVID hit. Many people suffered and many restaurants were forced to close. What would a service that captures the hearts of customers from a different angle look like?"I started COFU because I wanted to create a new store, present a new style of sushi and make a change not seen yet. The lives of people who come to visit our shop can bring in their various past experiences of beauty and fun!"


"Mena Massoud, actor and cookbook author, travels across North America and eats his way through some of the coolest cities to show us how beautiful meals, talented chefs and restaurateurs are making plant-based food delicious and attainable."

"COFU is my baby. I want to raise it big and make it great. Any business is hard work, but I don't want to make only myself happy. I want to make my staff earn more money, too. As my business grows, I want to create a virtuous cycle." —Akiko Otsuka
