What is Sunomono?

Need a side dish to go with your Japanese food? When you’re at our Lynnwood Japanese restaurant, grab a bowl of sunomono! You’re sure to find the refreshing taste a welcome complement to the stronger flavors that come with many of our other menu items.

The word “sunomono” applies to a variety of dishes, though cucumber is a common version. The “su-” in sunomono means “vinegar”, exactly in the way that “sushi” describes the vinegared rice that makes up the dish. Here, the vinegar comes in the form of the distinct dressing that offers sunomono its crisp, palate-cleansing taste. Try it for yourself today at Wild Wasabi!
