What's so great about Japanese food is that so much of it is healthy without having to make any substitutions or modifications.At Shine Ya, fresh fish, creamy avocado, veggies and brown rice make for a perfectly balanced meal. This Japanese owned and operated sushi joint is a must visit for healthy and delicious fare. In addition to making all of their rolls with brown rice, they use organic and OceanWise ingredients. On the menu, you'll find the usual suspects like spicy tuna, salmon and avocado, dynamite and California rolls. There are also specialty rolls - the Sakura Blossom roll is filled with real crab meat, spicy albacore tuna and avocado, and topped with wild salmon and finished with a creamy maple drizzle (which you could opt out of). It's not just rolls and sashimi that you'll find here. Shizen Ya's menu also features rice-free rolls, gyoza, udon, teriyaki, tempura (they use whole wheat flour), and salads. In addition to fish, chicken and some beef dishes, there are a number of vegetarian options here.
