Quick Review: Ninja Sushi in Roseville

Quick Review: Ninja Sushi in Roseville

I am no fan of Yelp.  I hate the negativity of the bad, sloppy reviewers that you have to read through to get to good, insightful reviews. 

Yet Yelpers do seem to get the Top 100 list right. Recently the 2015 Top 100 Restaurants reviewed on Yelp came out.

While my Irish ancestors passed along their fair skin, blue eyes and monikers to future generations, their St. Patrick’s Day menu remains a mystery. My mom and dad adopted the Irish-American tradition of serving corned beef and cabbage on March 17 but now that I have my own family, I don’t stop there!

Corned Beef and Beyond

Corned beef is made from brisket that’s been cured or pickled in brine. The Wellshire Farms pre-packaged corned beef brisket Whole Foods Market sells is based on a slow-cooked recipe that has been passed down for generations and relies on simple ingredients like water, sea salt, raw sugar, beet powder, spices and garlic. (The beet powder adds a sweet flavor, as well as a pinkish color.)... Read More
