2. sushi grade fish

Question is where can you buy sushi making equipment like 1) and raw sushi fish

    Also, most asian (Chinese/Korean) markets will have the basics you need, such as rice vinegar, short grain rice, nori, rolling mat. Most importantly, you need a very very sharp knife, thin too.

    1. Pacific Mall, upstairs where the restaurants are, there is a store that sells Japanese dishes and such, they have the sushi tubs and other equipment. I would also not be surprised to find those things at Tap Phong if you go downtown.
