My dad introduced me to Japanese food. He just loved it and would bring me along when he craved for it. Usually on a weekly basis. I have tried a variety of Japanese food, from Udon, Gyoza, Tempura, Gyudon, Okonomiyaki... and many more... but as most of us are, I am very fond sushi.
Now sushi comes in different types. But the most popular, as shown in the group's logo is called, Norimaki...this is sushi rice rolled in dried seaweed sheets. The sushi rice is actually a very sticky rice cooked with sushi vinegar. This is what makes it distinct with the common rice we all know. And there are other ingredients that may be added when rolling such as crab meat, shrimp, fried egg, chicken, cucumber, mangoes, etc.
I have tried making sushi. It is fun and well, sticky. Buy the ingredients and your sushi mat and ta-da! Though I am no master but it provides a relief for a boring Sunday afternoon.
Lately however, I have given up making sushi at home. A sushi restaurant opened in our area late last year. I found a friend who shares the same craving as I do. Hence, we always go eat sushi weekly.
