Lately, our picturization of Asian cuisine has been incomplete without sushi. While proper and authentic Japanese food is still gaining traction in India but the floodgates have already opened for this popular dish. Contrary to popular belief, sushi does not always mean raw fish. Rather, it’s the raw fish which is the most popular ingredient in sushi.
Technically, sushi is basically a Japanese dish of prepared vinegared rice, usually with some sugar and salt, accompanying a variety of ingredients, such as seafood, vegetables, and occasionally tropical fruit. There are several types of sushi, making it an appealing food to people with a wide range of tastes and if you haven’t tried it already, we suggest you do so stat! Here are some places which serve the best sushi in town so you know where to go!
