Among Japanese-styled dishes, sushi tops the charts of popularity for its blended combination of flavors and enriched tastes that won the hearts of people all over the world. Sushi has then become a strong rival to the remaining cultured dishes and even Western cuisine.
“Oishi desu!” means ‘very delicious’ in Japanese.
And when it comes to the Japanese dining culture, you can’t overlook these little details – all the mannerism that involves such greetings like “Itadakimasu’ and ‘Gochisosama’ done before and after having a good meal.
