I'm going to be real honest with you. Approximately 80% of restaurants close within the first year. Of the 20% that make it beyond a year, 90% close within 5 years. That means out of 100 restaurants, 2 are still up and running after 5... (more)

Even worse, the source of fish (farmed salmon most certainly!) they use in most sushi restaurants. Very questionable. Plus, way too much rice mixed with that high-sugar vinegar. It's really easy to slice up and pickle ginger at home, and slap... (more)
