Hey Foodies!!! Hope you all doing good. If you guys were wondering (at least we hope you were) that what was keeping us busy to share the next post then we are here to answer it 🙂 It was Bangkok 🙂
We guys were out for a small vacation to Bangkok with our better halves 🙂 It was awesome!!! The plan was super spontaneous. Sakshi happened to ask me if we (my hubby and me) were keen on going out for a short trip to Bangkok to celebrate their anniversary. I was very excited and after some discussions the plan was on track. . In no time,we had our bags packed and we flew to Bangkok 🙂 Now when I think of it seems like a dream .And trust us foodies we had no idea that the trip with all its fun and joy will push us to share a Japanese dish with you all. We were sure though that we might have come back and shared Thai cuisine on our menu but we love when destiny decides for us at times.
So all in all, it was a five-day trip wherein we enjoyed to the fullest cashing completely on each opportunity we got. We lack words to describe the fun but hope you can relate to us if you have been out on trip with your best buddy 🙂 As we love travelling, we were eager to visit all the best places in Bangkok .The list had been prepared in advance 🙂 One of the places on our list was SkyBar which is so famous nowadays and is one of the must visits in Bangkok.
Suspended in the sky on the 63rd floor of The Dome at Lebua, the Skybar is the world’s highest open air bar, overlooking a panoramic view of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River. With such an enthralling ambience coupled with a seductive selection of the finest vintages, beverages and cocktails in Bangkok, the Sky Bar soars as one of the prized destinations in the city. No wonder, the rooftop bar is unanimously accepted as the coolest bar in Bangkok. Made even more famous by hosting The Hangover II boys during filming in Bangkok, Sky Bar offers one of the best views in the city. It is very easy to find, just look up and walk towards the tall cream building with the gold dome on the roof. It may not be the most relaxed experience as people will flock here on a clear day and it gets crowded, but the vista is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
Though we planned to visit Sky Bar with an intention to cover it as it was on our list but I guess it was the best place to celebrate my best buddy’s anniversary 🙂 The clock ticked 12 and we cut the cake/dessert available at Sky Bar. After settling in the great atmosphere and ambience around us, we eyed the menu to place the order . We were too happy to see veggie sushi on the menu and the four of us unanimously decided to call for it. It was overwhelming, because, while finding a sushi restaurant there is just as easy as walking to the next corner but finding the best vegetarian sushi can be difficult.
As we mentioned earlier we are ready to swear that we had no plans to share Sushi on our menu for now but being foodies and more than that food lovers who always appreciate good food, we could not stop ourselves from sharing this review and creating a nice vegetarian sushi in our kitchen to give it away to you all 🙂
But friends firstly we would just like to share that by no means we are an expert on the matter, traditional sushi chefs train for over seven years or so to become masters. But we tried again and again to present our best hand and hope that our tricks and tips will encourage you to make your own sushi, if you haven’t already done so 🙂
Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside of Japan, and one of the most popular dishes among the Japanese themselves. It consists of cooked vinegared rice combined with other ingredients usually vegetables in case of veg sushi. Sushi presentation vary widely, but the ingredient which all sushi have in common is shari. Shari is also referred to as sushi-meshi (“sushi rice”).Nowadays sushi can be defined as a dish containing rice which has been prepared with sushi vinegar. There are many different types of sushi.
The three main categories of Sushi include Nigiri, which is a small rice mound topped with cooked or raw vegetables, Temaki, hand rolled cones of seaweed that are filled with rice and vegetables and Norimaki or Maki, which is a combination of rice along with vegetables all rolled up in dried seaweed, with all three having the same foundation of vinegar rice. For each of these categories, the preparation is as unique as the presentation or serving.
For any type of Sushi, the seasonings used are crucial. The two main types of condiments served are Soy Sauce and Wasabi Sauce, which is Japanese horseradish and quite hot. Some people have discovered that mixing a little soy sauce with the Wasabi is delicious. However, this is taboo in Japan. Along with these, pickled ginger slices are served but only as something to cleanse the palette between eating the different Sushi varieties. The Sushi is generally eaten with fingers or chopsticks. Rather than take a small bite of the Sushi, the entire piece is considered a single bite.
The great thing about eating Sushi is that it can be eaten as an appetizer or main course. Being loaded with rich nutrients and low in calories, Sushi makes the perfect food. For this reason, Sushi is served in homes and restaurants around the world every day.
So foodies if you think sushi is too tricky to make at home, follow this recipe for preparing light and healthy vegetarian sushi from scratch and you’ll be rolling in no time! Truthfully the vegetables are fairly interchangeable, just go with what you like. Also it’s easy to add nori (seaweed) if you enjoy it.”

Till then enjoy this recipe of sushi and we bet you will love it 🙂
Cheers to Sky Bar!!!
