Sashimi is described as very fresh raw meat or fish that is very thinly sliced. And let me tell you, it is fabulous! I know that you've probably heard that raw meat isn't safe to eat, but if you get it in the right place it's often fine to consume. Check with the restaurant to learn more about where they source their sashimi. In the meantime, peruse these yummy sashimi types and you'll be ready for some in no time.
