I still remember exactly how glad I was when the first Sushi Ninja store opened in February 2012, because there was finally an alternative to the sushi offered here in Cologne. Up until then I had always indulged sushi by going to a special sushi shop whenever I got the fish munchies. Especially one with a delivery service, which is helpful in times when you simply can’t leave your comfortable couch to one of the three Sushi Ninja restaurants in total.
Sushi Ninja is not the traditional Japanese sushi but has some own creations that have very funny names like “Godzilla”; this is sushi which is deep fried in a green tempura batter. But my personal favourite is the “Alaska Spring” which is an inside out Maki roll filled with raw salmon, avocado and cream cheese and covered with a variety of aromatic herbs that give the whole meal a certain freshness and really go well with rice and fish.
At Sushi Ninja, you realize that there is a young and fresh team that is curious and not afraid to try out new things. If you are an active social media user you can either participate in contests (#hiddenninja) or upload your photographed food on Instagram, which can then be published on the #theninjawall in the restaurant.
