Something Fishy About the UK
Speaking of pet peeves - it's also very hard to get decent sushi in the UK. Of course, it's not a very popular cuisine so it's not really surprising. Many people here haven't tried it and in London, it's very expensive. We really miss the sushi in Vancouver. It strikes me as strange that fish is relatively unpopular in the UK given that it's an island nation. Ok, there is fish & chips but besides that there isn't any great fish tradition compared to places like Japan, Spain and the nordic countries.
