Welcome to the new Sushi world
Spicy Tuna roll, Eel Avocado roll, Shrimp Tempura roll... Those "American" Sushi rolls are very popular in Chef Yoshi Ota's current restaurant. Yes, they are very tasty. Yoshi likes them, too. However, he wants you to know another Sushi world with his 30 years Sushi Chef experience.
According to the literature-based history, Sushi began in Southeastern Asia, around Thai, Myanmar before AD. That was totally different from the modern Sushi style. It looks like fermented fish with raw rice, and they could not eat the rice part. The "Pickled fish" came over to Japan via China, and changed to today's Sushi in Tokyo 200 years ago.
Sushi is not only Nigiri and Rolls, those varieties differ from region to region, we can even have "Pickle style Sushi" in the countryside.
Sushi Gakyu introduces you the new Sushi experience.
