    When you only use like four ingredients, they need to be of the highest quality. If your rice, seaweed, fish, or vegetable/sauce/seeds or whatever is subpar, it'll show. Japs are great at taking a minimalist concept like sushi and elevating it through sheer autism. For a western example, see dishes like carpaccio: just raw meat with some arugula, cheese, and a vinagrette create something that's more than the sum of its parts, but every part needs to be top tier quality or it all falls apart.

      in part novelty in part because it tastes good

      this is a good actual explanation. another is good caprese. Mozzarela, tomato, and basil. Faty, acid, and herbal. All on their own are rather one note, but together, they elevate each part while not loosing themselves in over complexity.

      Even the highest quality raw fish doesn't taste like anything. And the rice only has the taste of vinegar.

    It's legitimately tasty. It's overpriced though because the average person is a moron that got tricked by Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Sushi is one of the easiest things in the world to make and it's so much cheaper if you make it yourself or go to a poke place. Poke doesn't have the allure of sushi because there's no gay Netflix documentary about it, but it's the exact same thing just thrown in a bowl and you get 3x as much for the same price.

        The latest trend is Korean BBQ and Korean chicken, replacing Chinese all-you-can-eat buffets and sushi. Just look for whatever's opening up in quantity as opposed to what is closing (or not growing when it used to).

        Also, Halal pizza joints are going to be the new up-and-comers, basically the same as regular 'za, but with gyro offerings, presumably prepared in separated kitchen spaces. Something to handle the burgeoning population of assimilating Muslims.

                Why not just go to a Panda Express and ask them to make a meal out of the ingredients that you want?
                How is that different from a buffet?
                Or did you just want to go to a buffet so you could cheat those goyim as much as possible?

                Chinese buffet food all comes from the same supplier, hence why it all tastes the same. Panda express uses a different supplier. You cant get red meat on a stick at panda express.

    Its anything but usual, there are pretty much no other cuisines that use raw meat.

    Also I dare you to try and make your own sushi. I'm not going to pretend its some master skill and you must wash rice for 10 years or any shit like that but it does take some skill and know how to do well. Sushi incorporates many different fish and if you don't butcher the fish properly the fish will quickly become chewy and muscly.

    I've only ever had "sushi" from Chinese buffets and it's always tasted delicious. My favorite is the deep fried roll or the ones that have fish eggs because of the pop. Is real sushi any better or is it all the same shit?

    • 1 month ago

      Sushi from a place that specializes in sushi is going to most likely be better quality, but at a higher price. You'll still be able to get your fried roll and fish eggs, and it'll be better than the buffet, but whether it's worth the extra cost is up to you.
      Now if you go to Japan to find "real" sushi, you'll find that it's a different animal over there than in the States because we Americans use ingredients that would be unheard of in Japan. I'm not sure about an everyday eatery but their high-end sushi restaurants take shit very seriously and can be very expensive.

    because japanese food is delicious. but sushi specifically is unique enough to fill an in-demand niche. it’s up scale, exotic, non-indulgent and healthy- it resonates with upper class people. after it has resonated with upper class people, middle class people emulate it, making it no longer niche, and just popular instead.
    japanese food outside of sushi is delicious too. tempura, yakitori and other grilled food and curries, done with a level of methodological consideration, like in french cuisine. but with a preference for “pure” flavors, obtained through a lack of intensely processing ingredients, like in italian cuisine

    The modern diet is so bereft of the primal joy of raw flesh that although sushi is simple in composition and preparation, it's deeply addictive because it stimulates a part of your animal spirit that no other food even makes an attempt at.

    For one, the rice is seasoned with sugar, vinegar and sake so it takes on a distinct flavor. The fish, also often has a thin marinade or pre treatment too, its not just straight up raw. Look at Jiro dreams of sushi, he uses a little paint brush to brush some concoction on the fish. Also, just fish and rice is only one type of sushi, you can get rolls that have nori, avocado, bbq (cooked) eel, tempura shrimp, deep fried soft shell crab, etc. Ton of things you can do with it. My jap gf in college brought this roll she made to my dorm out of the blue that had a small sliver of mango in it in addition to the other stuff and it was bangin

    Because its an "exotic" oriental food that is, and remains, palatable and fashionable, to upper-middle class Americans.
    a. It happened to be in the right country (i.e not a warzone or communist in the cold war)
    b. had a sizable diaspora of middle and upper-middle class people who were at least tolerated in the west and were not seen as filthy (see Indians)
    c. was accepted into the palette of many Americans for its non-offensive flavors

    all of these factors made Sushi, along with other Japanese foods the only real oriental cuisine to make the jump. Of course in places like Houston Vietnamese food is common because of places like Little Saigon and whatnot and Cantonese food in Chinatown in NY but the Vietnamese preferred to adopt the west and the Chinese have been seen as the "enemy" for about 20 years now.
