Sushi is HUGE (But we knew that)

Sushi News: 

So sez this article ( ) from the Washington Post which details the export of Japanese culture fads to the rest of the world.

"Sushi, once an urban trend, has become as globally ubiquitous as the Big Mac. Brazil's Veja Magazine reported this month that there are now more sushi restaurants than Brazilian barbeques in Sao Paulo, South America's largest city, where residents consume an estimated 278 sushi rolls per minute. And in Paris, on the Rue de la Gaite, the entire street has filled with sushi restaurants over just the past two years, said Patrice Jorland, cultural attache at the French Embassy in Tokyo. "This is Paris, yes, Paris," he said."
