Korea’s Delectable “Fire Meat”

Have you ever tasted really good barbecue? As in a savory-sweet, super-succulent, out-of-this-world bit of barbecue? This is the kind of experience that many people report when they first try the Korean bulgogi, which is available for your pleasure at our Issaquah Japanese restaurant.

Bulgogi, which literally translates to “fire meat”, is typically made from strips of sirloin or some other prime cut of beef. The meat is cut thin, to give the world-famous flavor a maximum surface area to cling to. It is then marinated in a sauce made from of soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, and garlic. The cooking is performed on a flat grill, allowing the meat to roast in own natural greases such that there is no need to add any unhealthy, fatty oils. Finally, the diner wraps each morsel of meat into a lettuce leaf along with a selection of sauces and other ingredients, as desired, and enjoys.

If you’ve never tried bulgogi, you are missing out on a dining sensation that is widely considered to be one of the most delicious in the world. Make a date for Aji Sushi and Grill, and experience the power of everybody’s favorite Korean barbecue today!

Avocado: the Funny Fusion Fruit

Avocado is a common sight at our Japanese restaurant in Issaquah. Though native to Mexico, this unusual fruit first made its debut in the sushi world back when the dish was still an exotic oddity in the Americas. Sushi chefs in LA discovered its utility in simulating the feel of eating raw fish, thusly easing Americans into the concept. This was how they created the first California roll, and avocado has been a quintessential part of Japanese-American fusion ever since.

Apart from being a delicious addition to sushi rolls, avocado is also one of the planet’s healthiest foods. They contain over twenty-five important nutrients, including copper, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, fiber, and vitamins A, B, C, E, and K. Their surprisingly high levels of protein and iron have made them a long-time vegetarian favorite as a meat substitute. A diet rich in avocado can help you prevent heart disease, breast and prostate cancer, diabetes, strokes, obesity, and even some forms of halitosis!

So take the trip down to Aji Sushi and Grill to fill your stomach with avocado today! We have a colorful selection of innovative fusion rolls to make every bite an experience you won’t forget!

Eat More Seaweed!

Do you like nori? Even if you don’t know it by name, you’re probably familiar enough with this vegetable. Nori is the proper name of Japanese seaweed, often found in the dried up strips that hold sushi together. At our Japanese restaurant in Issaquah, you can enjoy the spectacular health benefits of nori in our sushi, our seaweed salads, and more!

The health benefits of nori are many, particularly regarding your circulation. It’s popular as a meatless source of complete protein and iron, allowing vegetarian diners to maintain healthy blood cells. It’s also rich in potassium, which is good for regulating sodium levels and preventing high blood pressure. A high soluble fiber content slows the rate at which food is absorbed into the bloodstream, so it can also help people who have trouble regulating their blood sugar levels.

Try a little nori today at Aji Sushi, and start feeling the pure power of the ocean surge through your veins!
