Inside the world of sushi

In search of the ultimate sushi experience, the author plunges into the frenzy of the world’s biggest seafood market–Tokyo’s Tsukiji, where a bluefin tuna can fetch more than $170,000 at auction–and discovers the artistry between ocean and plate, as well as some fishy surprises.

A great (and very long) read that includes some discussion of the ascendancy of sushi’s popularity here in America. (Relatedly, I’d eat sushi at least once a day if it wasn’t so expensive.)
