The idea of sushi, on paper, sounds kind of gross. If you were to ask someone, "Hey man! Wanna get together eat some some raw fish rolled in cold rice and seaweed?!" they'd probably say, "Hell no dude, let's get something actually delicious, like pizza or cheesesteaks or like, anything that doesn't involve cold rice and raw fish."
And although I'm not a big fan of sushi, I can totally see the appeal, especially when it comes to looks. The compact little rolls of carbs and protein and veggies are definitely easy on the eye.
What's really cool about sushi is that because of the way it's made, you can manipulate them into all different shapes, sizes, and designs.
