Nowadays sushi is maybe the most cherished dish in Japan. And most of us tend to believe that it originates from Japanese areas. However, Sushi has first appeared and started being cooked in Thailand and Vietnam, as sources state. Then, it became known in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines and finally brought to China.
While at first it was considered as the food of poor people, who worked in or near paddy fields, it ended up becoming one of the most sophisticated dishes worldwide.
