The Difference Between Sushi Rolls and Nigiri

If you are a sushi novice, there are a few things you should know before you decide what to have at a Japanese restaurant. Sushi rolls are one of the most popular menu items, and they are made from a variety of different ingredients. In general, sushi rolls are made up of rice, seaweed, fish, and vegetables. These ingredients are rolled together in a long tube and then cut into bite-size pieces. Nigiri is a slightly simpler style of sushi, with a mound of rice topped with a tiny bit of wasabi and a piece of fish or a vegetable draped over it. Both sushi rolls and nigiri are delicious—it’s up to you to choose which sounds better tonight! You might also mix and match for an authentic Japanese dining experience.
