    F.Y.I., お任せ (omakase) is pronounced: omaka-say.
    Other than that I thought this video did a good job at explaining the different ways in which sushi can be prepared.

    says that sashimi isnt sushi because it doesn't have any rice but sashimi literally has rice underneath the fish

    What's the name of the music theme playing at the beginning?

    The music in this video is so sweet. What is the name of it?

    why do i get the feeling this presenter is on the credit roll of Jersey Shore episodes somewhere….

    or, picture her saying "Like, what everrrrr" whilst she rolls her eyes and flicks her hand up.

    Cant help it.

    Sushi does not mean rice and raw stuff. Sushi means vinegar rice, because the rice is throughly mixed with vinegar.

    I wanna live in Japan, because even the cheapest food tastes like a five star restaurant from America there

    Awesome content. I REALLY wish this was done fish by fish, not proccess by proccess. it sort of is jarring to stop and go stop and go. Additionally, I can't link the video to certain time stamps for certain friends, and it is too long for them tow atch the whole thing (like i did) to see just the 2 or3 items they like.

    still bloody great.

    And THAT is why good sushi is never the cheap option. And nor should it ever be.

  • June 18, 2018 at 8:01 am

    I really enjoyed this video. I’m a sushi eater and I feel like this video was very informative. You explained everything extremely well. I now have a greater appreciation for the art form, the tase and the cost of well made sushi. Keep up the good work.

    I loved every second of this video. It was over 30 mins long and not once I remembered that my room vindow were opened and my room is really cold now.

    I don't care if he didn't go to med school. If I ever need surgery, I want this guy.
