4 Healthy Gunkan Sushi Under 100 Calories at Sushi King

Well, we assume to know sushi very well as rice wrapped in seaweed and different toppings. However, there are mainly 3 groups of sushi that we need to know: nigiri, maki and Gunkan. These are the types of sushi commonly found in sushi restaurants and also Sushi King’s. Nigiri Sushi mainly encompasses sliced fish that can be raw, grilled or marinated on top of sushi rice. Maki essentially means “roll” and is mostly a round piece of sushi. The fillings are commonly in the middle and surrounded by rice cooked with vinegar and finally wrapped in nori. Lastly, Gunkan sushi has the same ingredients but is presented differently from the maki. It has the nori wrapped around with the rice as the base and the toppings will be placed on top of the oval-shaped cup based on the design. Now that you know of the 3 different types of sushi, do you know where you can get them?
