Updated: 2/25/2023 | Best Places to Get Chirashi in Seattle
Chirashi is an entire sushi experience in a single bowl. It’s also one of our favorite ways to consume sushi. If you’ve seen it on a menu and wondered what it is, we’ve got you covered.
Chirashi, or chirashizushi (ちらし寿司), is a classic style of sushi. It’s a bed of sushi rice and ingredients “scattered” over the top in a decorative manner. Raw fish, tamago (egg), shiitake mushrooms, kanpyo (calabash shavings), and oboro (crumbled shrimp paste) are common chirashi ingredients.
Chirashi is often packed into a shallow rectangular or circular lacquerware box.
There are even vegan options that are served on holidays. Those are typically made with both pickled and fresh veggies atop sushi rice.
Below, we’ll share our favorite places to grab a bowl of Chirashi in Seattle.
