In Brief

Japanese chef creates meals so small they can fit on a single grain of rice.

You would think the art of making sushi is already delicate enough, but Hironori Ikeno has created some snacks so small that they fit on a single grain of rice. It has taken him 13 years to perfect, and while this particular sushi might not offer much in the way of sustenance, it’s extremely impressive.

Each plate of sushi takes five minutes to make, compared with one for a regular dish. Regulars at the Nohachi store claim the sushi has a lot of flavor, even for it’s minisucle size. “Each grain of rice actually had quite a distinct taste,” says Hisako Okamoto.
