Transcript

Let me tell you about my favourite food, sushi.

Sushi is raw fish on top of some white rice.

Sushi originally comes from Japan.

It’s very popular in America these days, because people think it’s good for your health.

Most of the time, my friends and I order sushi for lunch, at least once a week.

It’s a good source of protein, and the rice gives us a lot of energy.

I like to dip sushi into soy sauce mixed with some wasabi, which is a spicy horseradish paste.

I think sushi is delicious and very healthy.
