Recently, we've learned about a cool app in town called Validated, where you can eat at your favorite restaurants and simultaneously earn credit to help pay for your transportation. Whether you drive (and pay for parking stubs), take an Uber or Lyft, take public transportation, (etc.) Validated can help account for those small transportation costs that can really add up!
All you have to do is scan your receipt, hit a spending target, and get credit to pay for your transportation! So naturally, we wanted to get in on this, because who doesn't want free transportation? Our sister restaurant, Akasaru Ramen, is also available on the app.
Hope you guys enjoy playing around with the app! If you have any feedback about Validated, feel free to let us know in the comments!
In celebration of the coming Spring, we got a little creative in the kitchen. We've created a beautiful new roll, but decided to release it exclusively online and on social media, to show our fans some love. If you order the "Japonesa" roll, you'll get: cucumber, avocado, and SEARED ALBACORE (YUM) on the inside, and wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, jalapeno, and microgreens on top with yuzu kosho ponzu sauce. Frankly, it's amazing.
You'll have to hurry if you want to try it- the JAPONESA will only be available until the end of March. It's not on our menu either, so you'll have to order it by name!
As a bonus, we are taking $1 off the JAPONESA for every 100 likes we receive on our Instagram post (pictured above). You can access the post here, or find us @SamuraiBluePDX. Please be sure to show the Instagram post to your server so they can deduct the appropriate amount of dollars from the roll! If the post reaches 1500 likes, the roll will be FREE! Good luck!
