Looking at these small portions of carefully prepared food, it is hard to guess that they can fully satisfy the larger appetites. One thing I found about this sort of cuisine is that the small portions of compressed rice really do make your stomach feel full for quite a while, more than most dishes I know of. This particular batch of sushi was delivered to my own door, being composed of several delicacies. Needless to say, it was the tonic I needed to face the hardships that only this season can present - that adversary of mine called Christmas spirit.
A closer look: I particularly enjoyed the squid sushi, as there is a contrast between the soft rice ball and the somewhat chewy texture of that fish.
I can’t get tired of these fruity Maki, not to mention the thick slicees of salmon that absorb the soy sauce like tiny sea sponges.
I left the ‘best’ for last. To this day I’m not sure what kind of fish the chef used for this particular portion, but it retained part of its skin between the meat and the rice ball, which tasted somewhat glutinous. I never tasted anything quite like it.
