More about Sushi...
Sushi is a food made of vinegared rice combined with various toppings or fillings.

In Japan the word sushi refers to a broad range of foods prepared with vinegared rice. Sushi toppings or fillings can include seafood, meat, vegetables, mushrooms or egg, Sushi toppings may be raw, cooked, or marinated. Outside Japan, sushi is often understood to mean clumps of rice topped with raw fish (nigiri), or even simply raw seafood, which is properly called sashimi.

There are various types of sushi. Sushi served rolled in nori (seaweed), is called maki (rolls). Sushi made with toppings laid onto hand-formed clumps of rice is called nigiri; sushi made with toppings stuffed into a small pouch of tofu is called inari; and sushi made with toppings served scattered over a bowl of sushi rice are called chirashi-zushi, or "scattered sushi."
