DINING OUT ... WITH FRIENDS AT

NINJA SUSHI

The Jalapeno Bomb — Inside you ’ ve got your soft-shell crab , avocado , and cucumber . Topside , say hello to crawfish salad , salmon , jalapeno , tobiko w / sweet sauce and spicy mayo . It was the best feast this side of the modern era .
The Kitchen Sink — the mother of rolls . On the inside , ya got your shrimp tempura ( YES !), spicy tuna ( double YES !), avocado , and cucumber . On top … on TOP ... a cornucopia of mouthwatering , pleasant-to-the-taste , goodness , slowly dissolving into your soul . This epic roll boasts shrimp tempura on top , teasing you with the spicy tuna , and tossing in avocado and cucumber for good measure . Inside this amazing flavor den , you will delightfully fill your palate with the best the sea has to offer a mere mortal anywhere in this valley .
The Rainbow Roll — Ah , the classic , decadent Rainbow Roll . Say hello to unagi ( freshwater eel ), avocado , macadamia nuts , and that go-to crisp , fresh cucumber on the inside . Resting atop this roll are the big four : tuna , yellowtail , shrimp , and salmon – adorned with a drizzle of sweet sauce . A back up rice bowl is mandatory , if for no other reason , simply to give your senses a rest every few moments . Ninja Sushi delivers food so incredible I fear I would spontaneously combust if I didn ’ t come up for air . Ask for the fresh wasabi – it ’ s on the menu . Once you go fresh , you ’ ll reject the rest .
Ninja Sushi has over 20 “ regular ” rolls like Tekka Maki ( tuna ), Spider roll ( soft shell crab , avocado , cucumber , sprout , tobiko w / sweet sauce ), the Garlic City roll ( tuna , salmon , snapper , green onion , cucumber , garlic w / sweet sauce ). They offer over 16 individual and combo sashimi plates ( thinly sliced raw fish with a sweet or citrusy sauce . So good !) that are as fresh as it gets . They have over 25 “ Special ” rolls on the menu ( that ’ s where we hang out these days ). There ’ s a kid ’ s menu , over 20 Bento Box combos ( a more mainstream combo meal with a protein , rice , a California roll , soup , and salad ). You ’ ll find Sukiyaki , Udon , and ramen noodle dishes , tempura , and the always delicious miso soup and seaweed salad . They offer over 16 sushi nigiri ( fish over rice – two per order ), including everything from sweet prawns to flying fish roe . There ’ s more — I ’ m just out of room . Did I mention they have fresh wasabi ? Yes , FRESH wasabi !
If you haven ’ t been to Ninja Sushi — or if you haven ’ t been in a couple years — get there . Not only will you enjoy what I personally think is the best sushi in the South Bay Area , you will also be supporting a wonderful family while enjoying the best sushi and the best experience you can have while dining out , with friends .
Cheers !
