New This Month

As we continue to traverse the new “normal” in our community, we still need to nourish ourselves, our families and our community, practice self-care, and celebrate the moments we can! This month one of those celebrations is Mother’s Day, with traditions in Japan, and a special menu at Shiro’s! We also discover how tuna became one of the most popular fish used in sushi, share a recipe from Chef Kinomoto, and offer a new sake to-go special! One of our proudest and most humbling moments this past month was donating healthy sushi lunches to frontline workers at EvergreenHealth Hospital. All this and more in May!
