You either love or hate sushi. If you love it, you can’t get enough of it. You spend your last dime on a sushi buffet and know the sushi chefs by name. If you hate it, you won’t even place a piece of it in your mouth without gagging. Not even when you’re a kid named Sam and in need of $10 to buy something at the store.
You should do yourself a favour and check your morals at the door of pan-asian resto-bar Buddha Bar in Knightsbridge, London.

Oh boy, this would surely bring foot fetish (or is it food fetish?) to a whole new level. Fresh from the sushi carousel, these delicious-looking sushi socks are made in Toyama, Japan.
These towels look like pieces of delectable sushi when they are rolled up. And whether you prefer your maki on the inside or outside, you’re covered – just change the fold.
For those of us obsessed with sushi, we’ve found our sushi fan club president: artist Eri Nami. Now, before you get too excited, these snow globes aren’t made of real sushi – that’d be gross – but they’re crafted to look like the real thing. Oh, except for those sparkles.
Love sushi? Love Transformers? Then you’d like these. Two rival sushi tribes, the nigiri and makare, inhabit the planet of Sushilias — which all sounds quite banal until you consider the fact that this pretty much means sushi gets into combat mode as they transform into sushiroids. Got to love the Japanese for giving the […]
Sushi aficionados may have already viewed the making and tasting of sushi as a precise art form, and they are absolutely right of course, but who’s to say we can’t have a little creative fun while at it? As these super cute pieces show, all you need is to unleash that can-do spirit and there’s […]
You know what they say, ‘Better start those sushi chefs young!’ Or so I think that’s how it goes. Japanese design firm ‘plaplax’ created this 45-piece wooden tsumiki-sushi set, composed of ‘shari’, referring to rice, and ‘neta’, which means ‘fish’. Kids on the road to sushi stardom will have a fun time learning the craft […]
Now this, this deserves to be called food porn! In the wake of the tragic 2011 tsunami that hit Japan, ad agency I&S BBDO and seaweed shop owner Umino Hiroyuki designed a series of laser-cut seaweed to help boost the weak sales of local nori manufacturers. ‘Japanese people are eating less seaweed than before and […]

Alongside my eternal quest for more sushi, I think I’ve found a way to satiate my craving for the time being. Or perhaps initiate it. Just like a take away menu, you choose your sushis, your makis, and your rolls, and they all come to your door in a bento box. Can we consider these […]
Say hasta la vista to that painful process of trying to create the perfect sushi roll. Arm yourselves with this secret weapon from Firebox, and you will dominate your sushi cravings like never before.

These rolls of sushi are just too beautiful to eat. Created by master sushi chef Takayo Kiyota, each tiny masterpiece is invisible until sliced. Once cut in half, each roll reveals an image created with the help of coloured rice, vegetables and a lot of detailed planning. I suppose this is what you resort to […]
When there’s no room in hell, the sharks will, er, eat our sushi. Good thing we have these things called ‘chopsticks’. Makes it easier for us to wrestle our food from sharks like the feisty humans we are!
