Where to Find the Best Nigiri in Madrid

The term “nigiri” in Japanese translates to “to hold in the hand”, reflecting the traditional method of consuming this type of sushi. Nigiri, a staple of Japanese cuisine, consists of hand-moulded vinegared rice topped with a thin slice of fish, seafood, egg, or another protein. Its popularity has transcended borders and become a favourite among Spaniards, often ordered for home delivery alongside hamburgers and pizzas.

Nigiri is typically served in pairs and eaten by hand, sometimes accompanied by soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger to cleanse the palate between bites. Crafting the perfect nigiri requires skill and precision from the sushi chef to achieve the ideal balance of rice and protein, as well as an aesthetically pleasing presentation. It's a true testament to the delicacy and precision of Japanese cuisine.

If you're a Japanese cuisine enthusiast, Madrid offers a selection of restaurants renowned for their authentic and delicious nigiri.
