Need a side dish to go with your sushi? When you’re at our Bothell Japanese restaurant, grab a bowl of cucumber salad! You’re sure to find the refreshing taste a welcome complement to the stronger flavors of our other menu items.
In Japan, a salad such as this would be called “sunomono”. The word applies to a variety of dishes, though cucumber is a common version. The “su-” in sunomono means “vinegar”, exactly in the way that “sushi” describes the vinegared rice that makes up the dish. Here, the vinegar comes in the distinct dressing that offers sunomono its crisp, palate-cleansing taste. It’s a great side to many Japanese meals, and a great way to complete any dinner at Sushi Hana 5 in Bothell, WA.
