International Sushi Day

Sushi is a Japanese cuisine that made its way overseas in the past 100 years. The dish is made with raw fish and packed with tasty flavor.

Before there was sushi, there was narezushi. Narezushi is salted fish stored in fermented rice for months at a time. Both Southeast Asia and Japan had their own version of narezushi, but it was the Japanese who altered the dish to become the sushi we know today.

Between 1600 and 1800 in what is known as the Edo Period, the sushi we know today was crafted. Fish and vegetables were wrapped in rice and mixed with vinegar. Eventually, the dish evolved into a mound of rice with a slice of fish placed on top.

This cuisine made its way to other parts of the world after the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923. This earthquake displaced many people, forcing them to move to other parts of the world. The Japanese people brought their cuisine with them and sushi began to grow in popularity on an international level.

Today, sushi is an incredibly popular food in the United States. There are countless variations of sushi, including sushi rolls and sashimi. Whether you have a taste for tuna, shrimp, salmon, or crab, come to Tsunami Sushi & Hibachi for International Sushi Day. Our extensive sushi menu has something for everyone. 

For example, if you’re on a low carb diet, you can order from our selection of low carb rolls. The bullet roll is made with escolar, peppered tuna, avocado, ponzu sauce, and sesame. This menu also includes the lollipop roll that is made with ebi, king crab, cilantro, avocado, Japanese vinaigrette, and rolled in cucumber.

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you can no longer enjoy sushi. At Tsunami Sushi & Hibachi, we have an extensive menu of vegan rolls that are perfect for you or your vegan friends.
