Carolina Pinto — Sushi Restaurants
For me, going back home always means go to the sushi with my family. For the record, I am not Japanese nor have any connection with the Japanese culture, apart for my love for sushi.
I also always found interesting how sushi restaurants in Europe probably have nothing to do with the one in Japan, and how we made it our own, sort of fast food thing. Nevertheless, I still love it.
Being in there around the table with my family, that’s what it’s special for me. Food is a big part of my Portuguese culture, and we always bond around the table — as we grab the sushi rolls one by one, we tell stories and share jokes.
HOW TO FIT IN
To have a typical European Sushi Restaurant you will need:
– Black walls on the facade– Decoration with Japanese characters– A sans-serif typeface to give your restaurant that modern feel– Use always the same colour palettes: red, white and black
Put everything in a rolling mat and roll it in a meaningless Japanese name.You have your sushi restaurant in Europe!
