Side Dishes and Condiments
In a sushi restaurant or a sushi bar it is not unusual to order a mixture of sushi and other types of food. First and most prominent among these is raw fish without rice, sashimi, as well as small servings of hot food, vegetables, and condiments. The possibilities for combining these dishes with sushi are limited only by the imagination and inclination of the individual. Similarly, Japanese inspired culinary creations are often incorporated into conventional Western meals as appetizers, side dishes, or main courses.
