What is Inari?

Deep Friend Tofu Skin

The world of sushi is one of many nuances and surprises, even for the experienced diner. If you think you’ve tried every roll and every nigiri in the book, come on down to our Issaquah sushi restaurant to try some inari.

Inari, or inarizushi, is a curious golden-brown deep fried tofu skin that may not look like a piece of sushi you normally see. One of the simpler varieties of sushi, it consists of a small brick of sushi rice wrapped up in a coat of the fried tofu skin. The end result is quite delicious, and is a popular choice for many Japanese children. It often goes under the nickname of “brown bag sushi” or “football sushi”, describing its distinctive shape. Come and give it a try at Aji Sushi and Grill!
