Sushi As Art! Edible Mosaic Sushi Plates! Cola Sushi Too! Japan’s Wildest Sushi!


Sushi Works Of Art!

There is a great creative endeavor underway in the world of sushi: they call it “Mosaic Sushi!”

Here is how the intrepid reporters from “” describe it:

“Think of a mosaic image — an arrangement of tiny, colorful tiles that, while ordinary looking on their own, create a striking impression when viewed from a distance. Now instead of small bits of ceramic or glass, imagine the same image, but made from small cubes of rice, seaweed, raw fish, and other assorted delicacies.”

They go on to add:

“layer after layer of vinegar soaked rice with mouth-watering (and colorful) ingredients like Sakura denbu (a flaky fish-based condiment), cucumber, shredded eggs, chicken soboro (seasoned, ground chicken), raw salmon, and squid. In that order, basically. A wooden box holds the ingredients in place, and additional ingredients are carefully set on top of successive layers of nori (dried seaweed).”

Here is a great video from Japan that shows how it is done:

    • Pete, I always link to other stories I’ve posted in the same genre in case someone missed it…I have a lot of friends who tell me about my bacon/food stories, yet they don’t get much traffic…one of the crazy frustrating aspects of this thing called the internet!
