Celebrate International Sushi Day with The Fatty Bao

The Fatty Bao has a special sushi menu on offer from June 18-25, across Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata. Break out those chopsticks and get ready to celebrate International Sushi Day.

The origins of sushi began in Japan with Narezushi, where in order to give fish longer shelf life, it was wrapped in salted and fermented rice. The rice was later discarded and only the fish was eaten. Sushi, as we know it today, first emerged in Japan in the Edo period (1600CE – 1800CE). Fish and vegetables were wrapped in rice and mixed with vinegar, with different regions using variations of this combination. With the Japanese community spreading across the world, sushi too, gradually gained global acceptance. In 2009, International Sushi Day was established on June 18 to celebrate this unique traditional food, and its popularity across the world. If you’re fond of sushi, The Fatty Bao has just the thing for you this International Sushi Day.

While sushi might have had its origins in preserving fish, today, there are many variations with all kinds of ingredients.

Starting June 18 and on for a week, The Fatty Bao will have available a specialty sushi menu on offer for takeaways and deliveries. From the California Roll, tempura, fish katsu and spicy salmon and tuna tartare, to spicy mushroom and kimchi mayo roll, fried vegetables and wasabi sauce sushi, and the mango and avocado sushi roll, there’s an enormous range of delectable sushi to be had.

Although it took some time to gain acceptance initially, today sushi is one of the most popular Japanese dishes across the world.

Says Chef Prashanth, Executive Chef, The Fatty Bao: “Sushi is cold cooked rice dressed with vinegar that is shaped into pieces and topped with raw or cooked fish, or formed into a roll with fish, egg, or vegetables and often wrapped in seaweed. We take that concept and extend it with different interpretations and presentations. For a meal that seems so simple, sushi seems to intimidate even its most loyal fans. While sushi has morphed into many different forms and shapes around the world, it remains the most popular Japanese food and there’s so much to explore in this delicacy. What we have tried to do with this promotion is make it more fun and experimented with different ingredients and flavours.”

The special sushi menu will be on offer at The Fatty Bao in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata. You can order online, call the restaurants directly or find the menu on aggregator platforms. So, time to break out those chopsticks and get sushi-ing.
