How often is the menu replaced at a sushi restaurant in Japan?

Japanese trained sushi chefs have a slightly different view of gastronomy than European sushi chefs. In Japan, it is very normal to follow the season for raw materials.
By that I mean that not all types of fish can be obtained all year. In Denmark we are used to that it is only in certain months that you can eat fresh lumpfish roe.

This is how Japanese have with all kinds of raw materials. There are many Japanese restaurants that do not have a detailed and fixed menu. As they regularly and often the same day come back from fish markets with new fish species.

At the Sushi course for beginners I talk more about fish for sushi.

What do a Japanese meal consist of?

Goyza1A Japanese meal is very different from what we know in Europe.

In Japan they eat many small meals for dinner 6-10 dishes consisting of fish, seafood, rice, various vegetables and meat. All dishes are very light in texture and enjoyed for several hours.
In the course of an evening the Japanese eats a very balanced dinner.

The Japanese are as just as busy as any other, and they work several days and hours per week.
Like so many others, they have no time during the week to spend hours in the kitchen and cook. Therefore, there is a wide range of take-away stalls, stands and Noodle bar of very high quality at a reasonable price, which is used frequently several times a week.

In this way the Japanese manage to eat healthy and have a varied diet.
