If you have ever been to a sushi bar, you'll probably remember beingconfronted by a huge selection of sushi types.
When you think of "sushi", nigiri sushi is probably the first imagethat appears in your mind: a hand formed ball of rice topped with your choice of fish or Japanese style egg omelette.
Following that would probably be a sushi roll, called "maki sushi" in Japanese. This type of sushi is rolled with a filling in the centre, usually with nori wrapped on the outside. A variation of this is "temaki", a roll in the shape of an ice cream cone.
But there are also many other things you can order from your sushi chef, such as "Chirashi sushi". This is a bed of sushi rice topped with assorted ingredients.
How about "sashimi", where the rice is omitted and only the fish is served?
And then there's "oshizushi", a box moulded sushi popular in the Kansai region of Japan.
Once you've mastered these terms, you'll have to decide which toppings you'd like. Well, that's a whole other group of terms you'll need to learn if you want to sound like an expert.
