Good Tuna Makes Good Sushi!

There was a time when tuna took a back seat to no other fish. Unfortunately, it lost its seat as the nation’s favorite fish in recent years to the lowly shrimp. This is due largely to the fears that came about from the revelation of the mercury content of certain cans of tuna. However, Flo’s Bellevue Japanese restaurant wants to remind you that this is not typical of tuna, and this amazing fish actually has quite a lot to offer.

One of the best things about tuna is that it is a “fatty” fish. This means that it is a particularly strong source of the omega-3 fatty acids that are a vital part of keeping your heart healthy. It is also full of nutritious, low-cholesterol protein, providing you with twenty-five grams of protein in three ounces. Further, it is a source of important nutrients like phosphorus, vitamin b12, niacin, and selenium. These are good for stabilizing your blood sugar, strengthening your immune system, and purging carcinogenic toxins from your body. Ultimately, the benefits of a low-mercury cut of tuna fish far outweigh the possible drawbacks. Come to Flo to enjoy this classic fish in the form of our many different tuna sashimi, nigirisushi, and sushi rolls!
