As rich and diverse Japanese cuisine is, no other delicacies in its vast repertoire is perhaps as more popular than sushi.
Yes, that humble vinegared rice rolled with raw ingredients that most of us can’t get enough off.
Interestingly, early sushi is said to have originated not in Japan but in Southeast Asia.
From the Mekong River it spread into China before finding its way to Japan where it embedded itself into its local culture.
Sometime in the mid-1800’s, a man named Henaya Yoshi added a unique touch to give the delicacy a bit of makeover.
It’s also fascinating to know that sushi, unlike today, was a cheap, fast snack for common folks then and best enjoyed by hands instead of chopsticks.
Times have certainly changed.
Suffice to say, Japan undeniably perfected the art of making sushi and we all owe them a big ‘thank you’ for that.
