While Sacramento did not sustain any physical damage from the recent tsunami, our residents are far from untouched by current events in Japan.
SCVB friends Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar has many employees with friends & family who live in affected areas. Imminent danger has subsided somewhat, but the aftermath and grieving remain very real concerns.
All eight Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar locations throughout California and Park Meadows/Denver, Colorado offer a “Rescue Roll” with 100% of the sales going to the American Red Cross for disaster relief. The Rescue Roll sells for $12 at all Sacramento locations and $16 in Truckee, Calif. It is made with Panko shrimp, crab salad and cream cheese inside with slices of avocado and seared tuna outside. The roll is topped with Mikuni sauce and seared with a torch. The roll will be available through March 2011.
The restaurants also offer chef Taro Arai’s autobiography, Abundance: Finding the American Dream in a Japanese Kitchen, with 100% of sales going to the relief effort.
