What is Inari?

When you visit our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood, you’ll probably encounter a dish featuring a curious, golden-brown item. This is called “inari” and, though it may not resemble the sushi you’re used to, it is yet another of our delicious sushi options.

Inari, or inarizushi, is one of the simplest varieties of sushi. Far from the layperson’s perception of sushi, it consists of a brick of sushi rice fried in a sack of tofu. The result is quite delicious, and is a popular choice for children across Japan, who often nickname it “brown bag sushi” or “football sushi” for its distinctive shape. Try it out for yourself at Wild Wasabi!
