About Sushi Food

The word "sushi" refers to rice that has been seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt. Sushi is traditionally eaten with fingers in 1-2 bites, although many people use chopsticks.

It is not considered polite to pass food from one person to another using chopsticks, as this parallels a Japanese funeral ceremony. It is more appropriate to use the blunt end of your chopsticks and pass the food you want to share from one plate to the next.

The Japanese usually eat miso soup not at the beginning of the meal, but at the end—to aid digestion.

Knives used by sushi chefs are the direct descendants of samurai swords, and the blades should traditionally be sharpened every day.

Sake is a Japanese rice wine made of fermented rice, malt and water. Sake has an alcoholic content of 16% to 19% and its taste varies from sweet to dry. You can drink it warm or cold. When drinking Sake with Sushi, you usually warm it up to body temperature.
