When the first Japanese restaurant opened in Sweden in 1973, Swedes hardly knew what soya was. And we were even more clueless about sushi. What, raw fish for dinner! That has definitely changed. Today, sushi and the Japanese food culture are common in Swedish everyday food, and you’ll see plenty of sushi places wherever you go in Stockholm. These days, most of us know what wasabi and tamagoyaki are.
The Swedes – and the Stockholmers – have really embraced this traditional Japanese dish made of prepared vinegared rice accompanied by various ingredients, such as seafood and vegetables. And no wonder we love it; it tastes good, looks good, and it’s healthy.
