What do you call a Sushi Bowl?

Sushi bowls are all the buzz on social media. Often times, sushi bowls are also known as Poke bowls. Furthermore, You should have heard of Poke Bowls by now if you are ever on Instagram or noticed them on menus in Asian restaurants. The word Poke means “to slice or cut”. It is a Hawaiian word that refers to chunks of cut marinated fish, tossed over rice and topped with sauce.

Do you Serve Sushi Cold or Warm?

Most common sushi rolls are served cold or at room temperature.  Sushi rice shouldn’t be hot nor too cold. Even more, warm rice doesn’t taste right and too cold rice will be too chewy.

    Sushi rolls are really not that easy to make, I suppose if I had started to enjoy this type of food 50 years ago, I would be a pro but that didn’t happen. So this is a great way to get those flavors without all the hassle.
