On the seventh day God made sushi...

...and he never looked back. That's my humble opinion anyway.

Sushi first became part of my regular diet when I lived in Japan, and since then neither have I. Sushi is without a doubt my favourite food, and it's a great feel-good food too.

In London I'm always on the look out for a new sushi haunt that does delicious, fresh sushi at a reasonable price - and with a smile :) My current favourite restaurant for freshness and simplicity is See Sushi in Paddington. I recommend the Alaska and Dragon rolls...

Over the last ten years or sushi has become a lot more mainstream in Western countries - so it's pretty easy to experiment and try new flavours and combinations.

I'm a bit of a 'kawaii' fan too - and can waste hours looking at cute sushi imagery on Google or Pinterest. Here are a few I found tonight...

There's lots of information on the web about the proper way to eat sushi, but I'm not going to bore you with that. Feel free to Google if you want. I think you should enjoy sushi just the way you like it.

For me that's with a small amount of wasabi and soy sauce. Oishii!

How do you like your sushi?

  6. Claire,

  7. Hi! Came over from the Tuesday blog hop. I am so very jealous that you've lived all over the world. It makes my humble existence in New Jersey seem so boring!

    That said, I may live in boring New Jersey, but I love me some sushi! However, I'm deathly allergic to avocado, so it sometimes makes it hard. I looooove the Scott roll, rainbow roll, toro, kani, Philly roll. YUM! Now I'm craving sushi in the worst way!
