Discover local Sushi gems
Sushi is essentially vinegared rice, often wrapped in seaweed and featuring many combinations of ingredients, including salmon and avocado, to crab meat, to shrimp tempura, to lobster, and even eel. Many variations of Sushi found in the Western world, including the infamous California roll (avocado, crab meat, cucumber), the Spicy tuna roll (raw tuna, hot sauce, mayonnaise), the Rainbow roll (basically the California roll with different kinds of fish), are not commonly found in Japan, if at all. In its motherland, the art of Sushi making is indeed just that, an art form. In fact, it can take anywhere from two to four years to master this painstaking craft. The discipline, commitment, and accuracy of this culinary training doesn't seem too dissimilar to military school, we'd say!
Sushi is the most popular Japanese dish, but there are other tasty options. Sashimi, for instance, is a Japanese delicacy of fresh, thinly-sliced raw fish or meat with Soy Sauce or dips. (Unlike sushi, which includes vinegared rice, with various toppings like fish.) In Japan, most seafood is eaten as sashimi, but it’s also tasty as Beef, Yuba Tofu Skin or Konnyaku (an edible corm). Other dishes from The Land of the Rising Sun that are rising in popularity are Katsu Curry (breaded and fried chicken or pork on white rice doused in silky curry sauce), Teriyaki (a popular dish of chicken or beef topped with a savoury and sweet sauce) and Udon Noodles (thick, wheat-flour noodles in a savoury broth). Now really use your noodle – use the Menulog app.
Thinking Sushi? Then think Menulog – it’s the way to get that fresh fish feast in front of your eyes. Fast. The world loves Sushi, but not everyone knows it isn’t actually raw fish – raw fish is simply the most popular ingredient. The name sushi refers to the rice itself, which is seasoned with vinegar. Also, the word ‘sushi’ becomes ‘zushi’ in word combinations. For instance, the classic Nigirizushi are small, hand-pressed mounds of rice with a dab of wasabi topped by various ingredients, like Maguro (Tuna), Hamachi (Yellowtail), Ebi (Prawn) and Tamago (Egg). Soy Sauce is used for dipping, and Wasabi (aka Japanese Horseradish) can be mixed with it (don’t blow your head off). Gari (that’s Pickled Ginger to you and me) is also served to clear the palate between bites. (Clearly worth ordering through the Menulog app.)
