Sushi is a type of Japanese cuisine that usually consists of rice, fish, seaweed, and vegetables. Typically, sushi looks like a roll. One of our students recommended us to write about his favorite restaurant, Akasaka, which is a delicious sushi restaurant in Menlo Park.
Akasaka has a wide range of options to eat. They have appetizers like eda mame and saashimi. Sashimi is a type of sushi that has raw fish in it. Akasaka’s dinner meal that either consists of a type of teriyake, sushi roll, or tempura (deep fried vegetables or fish). Their dinner meal also comes with salad, soup, and rice. Sushi is typically eaten with soy sauce, wasabi (a spicy paste), and pickled ginger (used to cleanse the mouth’s palette).
