    It's not. Youre paying for some guy with a decently sharp knife you can get on Amazon for $60 to slice it and lay it on a rice ball.

      hey fren, try this...

      the sushi wraps i can get jasmine or something?
      they have perforated sections to slice at
      i can never hit them though but i use a knife that isnt very sharp
      i stab into them force and then saw while not applying a lot of downward force
      it requires some finesse

      >inb4 tuna mayo
      its just food. tastes good trust me
      it will give you a cheap taste at home easy to do and very cheap
      its really cheap for the rice, cucumber, vinegar, sugar, wraps all that
      like $1 for two meals
      i use half the can of tuna in one wrap and then half in the other
      its probably in my top 3 foods
      1.) chicken wings
      2.) sushi
      3.) general tso's
      thats a quick top 3 without thinking very much

          it tastes good
          there is nothing wrong with it
          tuna and mayo are good together
          and cucumber is fresh
          the spiced rice all concentrated together is like a tuna sandwich with cucumber

    Have you every tried making it yourself, contrary to popular belief you don't need to work for 10 years as an apprentice to put frozen fish on a piece of rice vinegar soaked rice.

      I started last lent making sashimi and poke at home. I just get the 12 oz package of frozen yellow fin for 8 bucks then just slice or cube it after defrosting with the water method. Tastes exactly the same, but sometimes I do like to drop fifty at the sushi bar just to get variety and some unfiltered sake. I guess we're a few weeks away from doing so again.

      Fish is just expensive as frick, period. Like trash fish is fricking ribeye prices per pound, it's absurd. Good fish that goes into sushi will be like $15-20/lb, and the higher quality fish is like $40/lb. Even bbq eel (exactly like at sushi joints) was like $18/lb from the asian place when I got it. I have no idea how expensive it is post-Bidenflation now.

      Anyway, sushi is expensive because fish is expensive, so with markup it gets silly expensive.

      I have, it's a pain in the ass and requires a few special tools to make (for rolls), on top of some specific items from the asian grocery. And even then there are a few autistic detail gotchas along the way. I totally get why people avoid making it themselves, it is FAR fussier than making a sandwich for example. But it is pretty simple to take smoked salmon from the grocery and slap it on a rice ball.

              Because that's when sushi was considered a novelty because it was new to the western world at the time.

              You're gonna waste a lot of money then. If you don't like California rolls just make veggie sushi rolls with cucumber or daikon or avocado to practice

    If you paid $45 for the sushi in your image that would be a pretty good deal. There's probably around a pound of fish there, and salmon alone goes for about $15-20 a pound these days on the lower end. The general rule of thumb is that menu prices are three times the food cost, of the items listed, which would mean $45 is perfectly reasonable. Of course that's not your image and you're just shitposting.

      the only reason why i would pay that much is because of the variety of fish. otherwise, i am going to be making my sushi for free because i am not stupid and i know that costco sells fish that is safe to eat raw

        most of it is from canada/alaska area if it's farmed. becoming a big deal on the wildlife in the west. instead of getting to the beginning of a river and spawning eggs they just die because of something to do with all the farming down stream

    Delivery fees are a fricking scam. Aside from that, you're paying for quality fresh fish that's been prepared for you. Compare the cost of getting that same variety if you made it at home. Making sushi isn't hard, but it is time-consuming, and good sushi restaurants will outdo what you can make at home because they have better ingredients.
    Also, you will never be able to make unagi in the USA. You have to buy it bulk for $500 or not at all, so you really are better off going to a restaurant if you like eel.

    Fish used to be poor people food, basically free. Dont look up what Cod used to cost just a few decades ago, and before you @ me you can put the price in the inflation calculator and see its appreciated a LOT more than the rate of inflation over that time period. The world started letting Chinese fishing vessels fish wherever they wanted disobeying all bag limits and vacuuming the oceans empty so now everyone else has to fight over farmed garbage

    Just buy fish and a chest freezer I'd you don't have one already and make it "sushi grade" yourself. Sushi grade dictates it was frozen to at least -4F for 7 days continuously. Cucks online will tell you oh goy home consumer equipment cant get that cold! My chest freezer gets down to -13F verified with two separate NSF certified freezer thermometers.
