You Deserve a Hand Roll!

Hand Roll Smoked Albacore Spicy Tuna Blue Crab Salmon Skin Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

It's not the same unless you put the "..." between the "hand" and the "roll." But yes, you deserve a hand, and a hand roll! Especially if you made it through Thanksgiving weekend without fighting with your relatives or with other Black Friday shoppers. And you especially deserve it if you participated in Giving Tuesday. Hand rolls are nice because you don't have to share them and you can make them to order. Our talented sushi chefs can make any type of hand roll your heart desires, like Salmon Skin, Spicy Tuna, Smoked Albacore, Blue Crab, and many many more. Just ask!

But if you have had it and have enjoyed it, you will also reap the benefits of it being a very healthy fish to eat as it is very high in fish oils, like Omega 3, which is why it is so shiny in the first place.
