The most popular sushi types


Nigiri consists of thinly sliced, raw fish pressed on top of sushi rice. There are some forms of nigiri that have cooked or seared fish, if you can't bring yourself to eat it raw.


Whereas sushi is fish served with a ball of rice, which might have some extra ingredients, sashimi is just a raw fish, which is sliced and served as is.


As maki means roll, so the classification is just on how the roll is made. Hosomaki (thin rolls) is a common type roll, very popular and widely use in Japan for lunch, snack, picnic,etc due to its bite size when cut and flavor concentration.
