@Star2236 pretty sure a heavy does of sarcasm as to the quality of grocery store/mass market sushi? Maybe?
Kroger here also has sushi and we are no where near an ocean. And I’ve never had sushi in a restaurant to compare. Or at a really good place. But there’s nothing particularly wrong that I can tell about the few times I got one from Kroger.
If walmart started doing it… Might have some questions.
@Star2236 yea. If I remember correctly krogers are done at a localish central kitchen (500 miles would only takes 10 hours. Not sure on their range) and shipped to the stores everyday. Should be low volume too.
Never had a bad one from them. But my sample size and comparison base is extremely limited. Still I’m with you kroger sushi is def not bad. Matt could have also been rejoicing that his grocer had good sushi lol.
My Kroger’s has a sushi chef that prepares the sushi right there for the day, I don’t know about the fish being frozen (I only non fish sushi) but he prepares everything that goes out.
@RiotDemon@Star2236 mmm interesting. Wonder if stores like yours ship to stores like mine. I don’t think I see sushi every day. Regaurdless I don’t think that level of sushi would ever be “bad”. I certainly enjoyed it.
@unksol In the USA anyway, sushi must be made from frozen fish, due to the risk of parasites. If you go to Asia and have sushi, it may be made from fresh fish, and maybe that tastes better or something, but there’s a non-zero risk involved
@kevinrs valid point. And freezeing does kill some parasites. I don’t think most fish parasites can survive in a human in the first place. So concerns about grocery store suchi would be down to time left unfrozen in the case/truck
