It took a while to catch on here, possibly because of a Midwestern aversion to raw fish.</p><p>Now, sushi is everywhere, even in the grocery store. Once a rarity, sushi and Japanese food in general are firmly part of Wichita’s diverse culinary scene.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:00:41 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 37984 at http://kmuw.org Wasabi Gets Crazy With Sushi Food: Asian Market http://kmuw.org/post/food-asian-market <p></p><p>I love Asian grocery stores. All of those mysterious, oddly named ingredients-- stinky tofu, anyone? Anyone?-- the smell of rice and soy and dried mushrooms. I visit Asian Market on Central, near Hydraulic, often, because it is close to both the restaurant and home.
