What do Japanese people think of Iranian-made sushi?

In this episode, we were delighted to be joined by Mr Yoshioka, a Japanese expat currently living and working in Iran. Against his better judgement, we wanted to sit, eat Iranian-made sushi, and chat about his experience of living and working in Iran.

We also get answer to the following questions…

  • What do Japanese people think of Iran and Iranians?
  • Are there Japanese restaurants in Iran?
  • What types of sushi do Japanese people normally eat?
  • What do the names for different types of sushi, such as ‘maki’, ‘hoso’, ‘nigiri’ and ‘sashimi’ translate as?
  • Which restaurant makes the best sushi in Tehran, Iran?
  • How should I hold chopsticks?
  • How much soy sauce is too much soy sauce?
  • Which type of doogh (Iranian yoghurt drink) is better, fizzy or still?
  • What does Iranian mukbang () sound like?
  • What do Japanese people think about Iranian-made sushi?
