HOW IT IS MADE

Our principle has always been not to mask or cover up or misrepresent any ingredient that we work with to prepare your foods. In reality the word 'natural' used for ingredients in many restaurants does not represent anything. We will not make any claims we cannot stand behind.

Our Proteins
We use a local meat company.
Chicken: Fresh (never frozen) skinless, boneless breast of chicken is marinated and flame broiled.
Steak: Beef Fresh (never frozen) - Ball Tip beef that is hand-trimmed, marinated and flame broiled.
Salmon: Wild Alaskan salmon that is boneless and skinless, and is individually Quick Frozen (IQF).
Fish: Filet of fish is boneless, skinless farmed Tilapia (IQF).
Prawn: Farmed large, white prawns (IQF).
Scallops: Medium scallops from Cape Cod, Massachusetts (IQF).
Tofu: Local organic firm, dense tofu.

Staples
Rice
: Jasmine rice and extra long rice cooked in three varieties.
Spanish (Vegan) - Cooked with California tomatoes, herbs and spices.
White (Vegan) - Jasmine rice steamed with very little Canola oil.
Brown (Vegan) - Steamed with even less Canola oil.
Beans (Vegan and Fat Free): We use triple washed Black Beans and Pinto Beans
prepared with no oil with herbs and spices.
Organic Quinoa (Vegan and Fat Free): Referred to as the Mother Grain, Quinoa is a high protein grain that is complete.

Produce
We buy from local produce markets, such as Berkeley Bowl Marketplace and Monterey Market,
and other local establishments. We buy and use non-GMO produce.

Tortillas
From a local tortilla company, Vegan and made with no hydrogenated oil.
Sauces and Dressings are all house made from scratch (i.e., Teriyaki is made with local Nigori rice wine and San J Gluten Free soy sauce). We only use Canola oil and olive oil.

ALL OUR FOOD IS GLUTEN FREE. Exceptions are tortillas (from wheat) and Chipotle dressing.
