Traditional sushi was made with fish, which has been salted and wrapped in fermented rice, which has been stored for a month. The rice was then thrown out and the fish consumed on its own. Nowadays, people often get confused by associating sushi with fish, but in fact, sushi is also made with fruits and vegetables without fish. Outside of Japan, sushi usually means the whole dish. There are hundreds of types, but several major are the most popular.
In recent years, it has gained popularity in Bulgaria, and the trend is that more and more people discover the flavor of Japanese food and culture. Several are the places we can recommend from personal experience, and we are convinced that they will continue to surprise us with new offers.
Japonica is the only Japanese restaurant under the hills. In it, some of the products are imported directly from the Land of the Rising Sun, and another - from special exchanges abroad. In the menu you will find a variety of authentic Japanese dishes, most of which are original recipes by Chef Lozev. Be sure to try the ramen, and for sushi options - we can only say that they are really worth it!
Several of the larger chain restaurants offer it on their menu. Happy Bar & Grill was one of the first places that gradually added it to their list, and now they are constantly completing and enriching their now separate sushi menu. The latest innovations are a salad with sushi and countless combinations.
At the restaurants Victoria (in Ramada Plovdiv Trimontium) and Raffy, you can also find a sushi menu and choose your favorites. We also recommend that you don’t miss the Japanese specialty in Toro Grande, where both traditional and original recipes are prepared in front of the eyes of visitors.
One of the stars on the menu of the street food restaurant Torro Boulevard is undoubtedly also sushi. The recipes were specially created by masters who attended the prestigious sushi academy in France and mastered the technology of perfectly cooked rice, combined with the freshest ingredients to create a feast for the eyes and a delight for the palate. The novelties are sushi burgers, sushi burritos and black sushi with sepia ink. The purpose of each of the sushi pieces is not only to satisfy your appetite for delicious food, but also to awaken the desire to explore new cuisines and cultures.
At the newest shopping center in the city under the hills, you can enjoy the traditional Japanese dishes, tired after the long shopping. There, on the floor with fast food, there is the Sushi Mushi stand, which also presents us with variations on the sushi culture.
