A Quantum of Sushi

Sushi comes in many different sizes, from the relatively large to the very small. When you dine at our Issaquah sushi restaurant, you’re probably not going to find something much smaller than some of the simpler maki-sushi. However, if you manage to find a certain restaurant in Tokyo, you might be able to partake of the very smallest sushi in the world.

This diminutive sushi is the creation of a chef named Hironori Ikeno, who first came up with the idea as a joke with a customer. In an attempt to see just how small he could make a nigiri-sushi, he took a tiny piece of fish and placed it atop a single grain of sushi rice. He then binds it in place with a tiny nori fiber, and serves it up to his diners.

You may not find any sushi quite as small at Aji Sushi, but you can always count on a satisfying Japanese dining experience. Drop on down for your next sushi outing tonight!
