Sushi dictionary


Bowl from Imari



Sushi words

Agari
It is green tea. Agari means start in English.
So sushi restaurants give us tea first of all.

Kappa
It is cucumber. A kind of Japanese monster “Kappa”
loves cucumber.
The Kappa is a combination of frog, turtle and monkey.

Gari
It is a type of pickled vegetables.

It is sweet, thinly sliced young ginger that has been marinated
in a solution of sugar and vinegar.
Gari is usually eaten between dishes of sushi

Garage
It is mantis shrimp called “syako”.

Japanese also use this word for the garage
where they park a car.
It is the same pronunciation. Oh! It is English!

Gyoku
It is egg. Egg is called “tamago”.

The “tamago” is the same as gyoku. .

Kusa
It is Nori, a seaweed wrapper.

Sabi
It is wasabi, known as Japanese horseradish.

Syari
It is steamed rice.

Sushi steamed rice has rice vinegar, sugar and salt.

Namida
It is wasabi. Namida is a tear in English.
You know why.

If not, you should put a lot of wasabi on sushi.
You will find out!

Murasaki
It is soy sauce. Murasaki is purple in English.

Long time ago, soy sauce was expensive.
Purple is a symbol of expensive things.





Attention,
I think only Japanese chef and waiter/waitress
understand those kind of words.
