Because testings have shown that the healthiest fast food is kebap and sushi.

Fat and fat is not the same, and the omega-3 in fish is very healthy.
Also, there is no need to become too obsessed with fat.
I worked in a sushi bar for a short period of time.

I don't know why seaweed was considered that important that could make people eat sushi? Coz it's just part of my regular diet. Need them for seafood soups.

Anyway, just let you know that some sushi bar (at least the one I worked for and the other few my friends ever come a cross) put sugar in the rice when they cook, to make it taste sweeter. It's a normal trick for a lot of oriental restaurant. My another friend worked for a Chinese noodle bar, and they never use salt, but instead, mix salt and sugar at 1:1, coz taste really drive people to buy from your store than the others. They don't pay your medical treatement afterward anyway.

To make california roll, we put mayo in the rice before roll, to give the sushi for much better taste. It's true that no oil directly put into sushi, but indirectly? You bet.

I'm not try to convert people not buying or enjoying sushi, but I really think the extra information is needed to clearify something. Eat too much starch isn't going to do anything good for the health, IMHO. A healthier fast food isn't mean it is healthy for everyone or healthier than any other food.

If you question about the percentage of rice and vege + fish used in sushi making, try to make hand roll yourself and you'll know.

A friend of mine I study with lives in a students' hostel, and last time we were there for some barbecue.
A Chinese student came with some dried nori you could eat as a snack, which tasted pretty good.
Should be available in Asian stores.

Well, fair enough, too much of everything is unhealthy.

We don't do so much sugar in our food, but use much salt.
I think in every country the food gets adapted to the taste of the people.
I know, for example, that sweet things in Denmark are much sweeter than in Germany, or that in Australia hot food is hotter.

It's news to me that now even rice is considered unhealthy in some way. But in general I don't care about what is healthy and what is not. I eat it, and I'm still alive. So who cares.
I don't eat too much fast food, only kebap and sometimes frozen pizza.

Interesting.
It tasted pretty much like with sushi, only that the fish and wasabe was missing.

Tastes are different.

The real question is - if sushi were enjoyed by prostitutes, how would those prostitutes advertise?

I didnt like sushi either.. it was only up until maybe a year ago my friend made me go. I am not a fan of fish unless its deep fried and breaded But, I tried a california roll and I actually liked it. From there I expanded my tastes. I still wont eat anything raw though. Everything you see there is cooked
