What is best to drink to sushi?

What is best to drink for sushi depends on where in the world you are.

Denmark is a country where wonderful wines are enjoyed all year round. Wines that go well with heavier dishes with meat or fish and seafood dishes that is lighter.

On a warm summer evening, I would suggest that you drink cold white wine that goes well with seafood. There are several different white wines and, I would recommend that you look past a wine merchant, they will be able to make the perfect match.

Champagne is also a very delicious wine to drink for sushi. The fine bubbles go really well with sushi. In Denmark, bubbles are most often drunk at special events. White wine and/or champagne are good choices for sushi.

In Japan, sushi restaurants most often serve cold beer for sushi. At the exclusive restaurants such as Michelin restaurants, you as a guest are offered sake. Sake is not just sake. Of course, it is important to sake wine that goes well with sushi.

When it comes to sushi, the selection of drinks is huge.

Do Japanese sushi chefs use chili mayonnaise?

Zoë EscherIn Japan, I have never encountered chili mayonnaise.

In Japan sushi chef uses different raw materials on top on nigiri sushi like herbs, Japanese vegetables, egg, homemade soy sauce and marinade to give the whole dining experience an extra dimension.

In the US chili mayonnaise is used in very small quantities. The only fish that uses chili mayonnaise is tuna in which it is typically mixed in a tuna tartar.

In Denmark, there are many restaurants that uses chili mayonnaise in many context like a ketchup.
I think that is a pity because you will miss out the finer flavors of the fish and the interaction between the various ingredients.

But it is an individual choice.
