Sushi: "In Japanese cuisine, sushi (寿司, 鮨, 鮓) is vinegared rice, usually topped with other ingredients, including fish, various meats, and vegetables. Outside of Japan, sushi is sometimes misunderstood to mean the raw fish itself, or even any fresh raw-seafood dishes. In Japan, sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi and is distinct from sushi, as sashimi is the raw fish component, not the rice component."

K.C.'s coworkers in Logan would often go out to lunch together. One place in particular was a favorite with K.C. and he wanted to share it with me. I was hesitant to go to Happy Sushi because raw fish simply did not sound appealing whatsoever! He assured me sushi is actually just seasoned rice, yet I still wasn't convinced. Still, he surprised me one night, not only where we were going for dinner, but with one of my newest favorite foods!

Enjoying the miso soup
I struggled with the chopsticks but I was determined to not ask for a fork!
I tried biting the sushi in half, but it would just fall apart. I eventually gave up trying and had to stuff the entire piece in my mouth!
Our plate of delicious sushi!
We ordered edamame, a fried and a fresh sushi roll, and some dinner boxes including California rolls, vegetables tempura, and sushi! My favorite was the fried only because the fish eggs in the raw roll made it too spicy! Overall it was delicious! My one recommendation is to not try and keep sushi and eat it later... it isn't very good unless it is fresh!
