Sushi Sensation in France: Exploring the Popularity of Sushi Entertainment!


Sushi has become so much a part of daily life in France that it is easy to forget that it is Japanese food.

In Paris and Nice, however, authentic Edomae-zushi made by a Japanese chef is very popular.

So, how is sushi actually accepted in France?

With these questions in mind, we would like to discuss the possibilities of Japanese sushi entertainment for foreigners.


What is popular sushi in France?

Sushi Aesthetics

Many French people, who love the delicate and beautiful presentation of sushi, as seen in nouvelle cuisine, are interested in the preparation of sushi itself.

At a sushi restaurant run by a Japanese chef living in Paris, French people watch the chef’s handiwork with great interest over the counter.

Everyone is in love with the sushi and enjoys the more authentic Japanese sushi.

In France, people tend to seek the beauty of sushi rather than the Japanese sense of enjoying various types of fish in sushi.

Sushi in France is just gorgeous.

From this point of view, one of the reasons why French people are attracted to sushi is the beauty of sushi.

Sushi has established an unshakeable position in the recent Japanese food boom.

We can see the popularity of sushi in France as well.

Sushi in France is a casual food, and when there is a large group of people at a party or other occasion, takeout is available for everyone to enjoy.

This is the most common style.

Of course, it depends on the restaurant, but in the past it was common to eat sushi at Japanese restaurants run by Chinese nationals.

Typically at such a restaurant, it is nigiri sushi with salmon, yakitori, shredded cabbage salad and a very light tasting miso soup.

Recently, however, sushi with a slightly more fashionable sensibility seems to be gaining popularity.

The most popular sushi is nigiri-zushi, which is a sushi topped with more ingredients such as salmon pink, avocado green, colorful tobiko, cheese, and so on.

There are also innovative menu items that have never been seen before in Japan, which I enjoy as a Japanese person.

Due to the popularity of these restaurants, sushi has become as much a part of daily life in France as pizza.

And, as a more everyday example, freshly prepared packaged sushi is sold like in Japan at large supermarkets, and sushi booths are set up specially next to the fresh fish section.

The sushi rolls are made by hand by Asian shopkeepers, so you will see French people enjoying the sight of sushi rolls being made on their way to the store.

Thus, sushi is as commonplace in France as pizza.

Sushi, however, has a more upscale image, and even takeout is a bit of a treat! There is a sense of “a bit of a treat even if you take out!

Sushi is enjoyed by the people of France, a nation of food lovers, in a variety of settings.

It is said that the lack of prices on the menu at high-end sushi restaurants also leads to this.

Like an audience appreciating art, the customers wait over the counter for the ultimate in good food, trusting the proprietor.

All the beauty is captured in one small bite.

This way of eating is unique to Japan.

The important thing is not only to exaggerate, but to be sure to provide the essence there.

Then, foreigners who have experienced and been impressed by the essence of Japan for themselves will be able to see the high level of tradition and technology that Japan originally possessed.

Sushi requires craftsmanship.

Because of its essence, sushi made by Japanese sushi chefs in France is accepted by French people as something different from casual sushi.

If only something vaguely sushi-like would have satisfied the French, only sushi from Chinese-Japanese restaurants would have been introduced.

However, Japanese chefs who have acquired proper skills in Japan serve the real thing in France.

Thanks to these efforts, Japanese sushi continues to be respected in France for more than its ease of use.
