Interestingly, most Americans have accepted false definitions regarding what sushi actually is. Many believe they’re simply eating raw fish – yet raw fish is actually defined as “sashimi,” not sushi. Why sushi is routinely so expensive and considered a delicacy often goes back to its “acquired taste” roots, but regardless, what a good number of dining enthusiasts aren’t even aware of is that sushi doesn’t have to contain fish at all. Characterized by a slightly sweet, sticky rice made with a sweet vinegar and rice fusion, sushi is traditionally lined with seaweed – or kelp – called “nori” with choice ingredients placed in the center to be ultimately wrapped into a cylindrical roll form.
Enter Kaigan Sushi of San Carlos, where we have been taking this concept of an “acquired taste” to an entirely new, refreshing level. We offer an eye-opening array of our namesake sushi in addition to other Japanese favorites, our establishment boasting three private rooms and sushi bar seating. Considered unique amidst the sushi circuit, Kaigan Sushi even offers catering for parties and events.
