Sushi has become a popular food the world over. Even people that have not visited Japan, nor speak a word of Japanese are now starting to name their favourite sushi.
This car is advertising their sushi shop in Quebec, Canada.
And according to this news article, sushi has apparently become the new sandwich in Britain with 46 percent of office workers looking for sushi!
No longer does there seem to be an issue with finding the right ingredients for the sushi outside Japan. Sushi is able to be mass produced and picked up as the healthy and innovative lunch option in most shopping centres these days. Of course mass produced sushi does not necessarily mean you are getting the most expensive fish that top sushi chefs like to work with. In other words, mass production of sushi can often mean that there are more California rolls than sashimi …. but nevertheless sushi of all grades is catching on globally as the meal of choice for many!
I love this flickr capture of a smart car, advertising the combination of sushi and a healthier planet! Way to go! Look at the fin at the top of the car! What a catch!!
Have you a favourite sushi? Mine is unagi – fresh water eel! The eel is usually grilled first and then touched with some sweet teriyaki sauce. Lovely!
Sushi can be traced to an ancient Chinese practice in which fish was preserved in salt and fermented rice. Sushi, first emerged in Japan during the Edo Period (1600-1868), in roadside stalls in Tokyo. Sushi has developed over the centuries into a sophisticated culinary delicacy, known and enjoyed around the world.
