Sushi Bar

In Japanese cuisine, sushi is a food made of vinegared rice combined with a topping or filling of fish, seafood, vegetables, or egg. Outside Japan, sushi is often taken to mean raw fish. It is sometimes confused with sashimi, which is delicately sliced seafood served with only a dipping sauce.

Although sushi uses relatively few ingredients, it is notoriously difficult to prepare well. Sushi is perhaps one of the most well-known examples of the minimalistic beauty of Japanese cuisine. As such, its preparation requires the use of the highest-quality ingredients, a thorough understanding of local and seasonal fishes, and a serious attention to detail and harmony.
