"Happiness in a bowl – this is how we define chirashi-don, which is essentially slices of sashimi scattered atop a good bowl of Japanese pearl rice. It is fuss-free, offers a myriad of flavours and textures, and more than comforting any time of the day.
What constitutes to a good chirashi-don? We all have different definitions, and one man’s meat may be another’s poison. But it is unanimous that freshness is key. And then, there is the variety of seafood, quality of rice, and temperature when the don is served. Other subjective factors include the presentation and the cut of the fish."

The above Chirashi-Don was from the famous Japanese Sushi Chain, Sushi Zanmai at its Higashi Shunjuku Branch in March 2015.
