Whoever thought that raw fish and rice would become a global sensation? It's true though, hailing from its native Japan, sushi has grown from strength to strength in recent years, and there is no looking back.
The traditional combination of raw fish, sushi rice, perhaps with seaweed and vegetables too, is a favourite across the world, due to its healthy ingredients, versatility and attractive appearance. With Singapore surrounded by the sea, it is no wonder that the sushi scene in the city is taking off.
