We have to admit that eating one of these unique nigiri would feel a bit like destroying a work of art.
Born in Italy to Chinese parents, the chef and artist Yujia Hu has been getting plenty of online attention these days for his pieces that represent his love of hoops, food, and fashion. Playfully dubbed shoe-shi, these bite-sized pieces of footwear are made entirely from the same ingredients you’d find at sushi shops everywhere, from the exalted counter of Sukiyabashi Jiro to your corner kaitenzushi.
