The Fast Food Origins of Sushi

Today, there’s little that says “classy dining” like quality sushi. However, this was not always the case. Back in its early days in Japan, sushi was essentially a form of fast food. When the country was experiencing large-scale urbanization, people were eager for a quick source of vital nutrients, and sushi was served as a form of street food to workers on the go.

It was only in the past century that the dish was elevated to the sophisticated dining experience that people enjoy at I Love Sushi. Come and get a taste of the food that built Japan’s biggest cities at our Japanese restaurant in Seattle!
