When sushi was first conceived (in 8th century Japan, no less) - it was a means of preservation. Rather than packing the fish in ice, they’d use fermented rice - eventually discarding the grains when they wanted to chow down on some delicious fish. Well… until one visionary decided to eat both the rice and the fish.
Fast forward a whole bunch of centuries, and it’s clear that sushi in all its various forms, is easily one of Asia’s best exports. We grab it from conveyor belts, we laugh at family members trying to eat it with chopsticks, we attempt to make it at home (even though it never quite works out), and we continue to do so time and time again because sushi is perfect in every single way.
But when it comes to grabbing some fresh nigiri in the Welsh capital, it’s not always obvious where to look. Sure, the ubiquitous chain restaurant that rhymes with ‘no’ is often the first choice for newcomers, but in terms of quality, we’ve found seven restaurants (well, six restaurants and one takeaway place) that will take your love of sushi to a whole new level.
