Sushi in Brazil

Sushi is popular in Brazil, but that is not surprising as they have a large Japanese population. Most of the 1.5 million Japanese in Brazil are descendants of workers who came in the early 1900’s to work on coffee plantation.

For lunch today we went to IE Sushi.

The sushi was really good. The sushi is very much like what you would get in Japan, but also is influenced by local cuisine.

One of the types of sushi that we had is called Hot Philadelphia. You cannot see it here, but the filling is cream cheese and salmon and it is deep fried in oil. It was delicious.

We also had temaki with salmon and cream cheese. Definitely something that I have not seen in Japan.

Here is another sampling of sushi and sashimi. What stood out for me on this plate was the strawberries.

This was a wonderful little bite with a mix of savory and sweet. The Brazilians are known for adding sweet elements into their sushi, definitely a delicious twist.

Definitely a wonderful lunch experience.
