Popular sushi types
Gunkan maki is another type of maki—“rolled” or “wrapped” sushi—and was invented in a Ginza sushi restaurant in the 1940s.
Nigiri is a style of sushi that is made by molding a ball of vinegared rice by hand and topping it with a slice of raw fish. It’s usually served with two pieces and can be eaten with the hands.
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.
