A Dish With a Significant Tradition
Sushi has been a traditional Japanese meal for hundreds of years. However, originally it is quite different from the one we are to buy as fast food nowadays. Namely, at first, this meal was prepared by placing a raw fish in vinegar with rice and leaving it there for a certain period of time. Afterwards, the rice is removed and the fish served raw, without any further preparation. After the World War II, this meal has stepped outside of the Japanese tradition, therefore finding its place in the fast food branch. Becoming even more popular in Japan, in time, it even got outside of the continent. In the 1960's it reached America. However, this dish was a bit different. Bearing in mind the American taste for food and their concept of fast food in general, sushi evolved into a sushi roll, taking the fast food marked by storm.
