Lebanese sushi at O&C

The sushi menu at O&C includes a Lebanese sushi that is made of Philadelphia cheese, avocado, crab, cucumber, and mango, all wrapped in Lebanese bread!

Does this qualify as sushi? It’s more like a sandwich cut into small chunks.

    Well Ichiban has something similar. Lebanese people like to try new food but they have a hard time giving up their habits (even if they do not show or admit it). I think what O&C and Ichiban adopted a brilliant strategy to attract more customers and become more successful in a very competitive market nowadays. Instead of trying to force onto the market the same products that worked in foreign countries, they developed new products to satisfy the tastes of the Lebanese especially those who are still reluctant in trying sushi. Starbucks did the same in China, they offer tea flavored coffee, this was their secret of success.

    In Japanese cuisine, sushi is a food made of vinegared rice combined with various toppings or fillings, which are most commonly seafood and can also include meat, vegetables, mushrooms, or eggs. Sushi toppings may be raw, cooked, or marinated.

    Sushi as an English word has come to refer to the complete dish (rice together with toppings); this is the sense used in this article. The original term Japanese: 寿司 sushi (-zushi in some compounds sush as makizushi) in the Japanese language refers to the rice, not the fish or other toppings. In the Western world, sushi is often misunderstood to mean only clumps of rice topped with raw fish, or to refer to other raw-seafood dishes, such as sashimi (sushi and sashimi are considered distinct in Japan).
