Nigiri at Shoya IzakayaAvailable at Shoya Izakaya !
Here in Atlanta, it seems that Japanese food is associated with a certain snob appeal: The more expensive it is, the better it must be. Fortunately, that is not the case at Shoya Itzakaya. You don't have to mortgage your home to dine here, and the ambience is open and fun (read: no attitude) as a traditional itzakaya house should be. Nigiri is what people commonly think of as sushi — a small clump of sushi rice with fresh fish on top. Sashimi is the thinly-sliced fresh fish itself. Sushi is actually the vinegared, hand-formed clump of rice itself. Got it? No matter what you call it, the nigiri here is as good as it gets in this city — a fresh and tasty, melt-in-your-mouth gift from the sea!
