  sushi

 

Thailand

A plate of sushi, with some pieces wrapped in sheets of dried seaweed and others fastened with just a narrow strip of seaweed. It is made with a kind of Japanese sticky rice and sometimes rolled in a layer of fish or sea urchin roe.

 

It is typically consumed with wasabi, that is Japanese horseradish (fig.), pickled cabbage, and sometimes pickled ginger, a type of tsukemono known as gari.
