What Does Sushi Mean?

The word “sushi” literally means “sour rice.” That’s because the rice used in sushi is traditionally moistened with vinegar. Traditionally, medium-grain white rice is used in the preparation of sushi, but brown or short-grained rice can also be used. The sushi rice is then topped with pieces of raw seafood like salmon, yellowfin tuna, cod, sea urchin, octopus, or eel.

Sushi is often paired with soy sauce or wasabi as a dip. A small serving of gari or pickled ginger is also included to cleanse and refresh your palate each time you eat a piece of sushi.

If you have your own sushi bar or sushi delivery service, you can use these ideas to promote a restaurant.

  • Identify what makes your establishment different from other sushi bars. Is it the ambiance? Are the ingredients sourced out from exotic locations? Are you using exotic ingredients?
  • Sushi lovers generally prefer authentic Japanese sushi. Thus in your captions and taglines could include words such as “authentic” and “true Japanese” to express authenticity.
  • One of the best things about sushi is that it’s a very visually appealing dish. Use professionally shot photos of your sushi or sushi platters on your social media platforms.
  • The preparation of sushi and sashimi requires skill and precision. Take videos making sushi or sashimi to include marketing assets. Remember, people love behind-the-scenes videos.
  • Invest in a professionally designed website. Your website is your “salesman” and “customer service representative.” Thus, having a website that is visually appealing, easy to use, and easy to navigate is important.
  • The recent health crisis gave rise to new opportunities in the food industry like online food delivery. Use this to your advantage since people prefer dining in their homes.
  • Use your social media accounts to advertise your menu and engage with your customers. Take photos of the sushi rolls you make every day and share them on these websites.
