Ika Nigiri

Ika nigiri sushi is a traditional Japanese type of nigiri sushi. It consists of hand-pressed sushi rice that’s topped with slices of squid. The dish has a rich flavor and a texture that is firm and slimy, slightly chewy but not rubbery. Traditionally, this type of sushi is eaten by hand in a single bite.

It’s usually accompanied by soy sauce or pickled ginger (gari) on the side, and it’s often served with a shiso leaf in order to elevate the flavors. Interestingly, tourists find this type of sushi difficult to eat, especially raw, but in Japan it’s one of the most popular types of nigiri sushi.
