What does Edomae mean? Nobody knows, but it’s provocative and gets the people going. At least, that was our response when we heard we were getting a new sushi place (specializing in Edomae). Made from raw fish and vinegar-seasoned rice, it’s more of a modern taste than the basic sushi you might be used to. (It’s no less delicious, though.)
