History tells us that sushi - what we think of as a Japanese food item - actually descended from a Chinese dish known as NAREZUSHI. Thought to be prepared since the second century BCE, the dish featured fermented rice and salted fish. The procedure was instituted to preserve the food. In fact, the rice was discarded once it served its purpose of protecting the fish from spoiling.
It wasn't until the eighth century CE that the name "sushi" appeared in the YORO CODE in the year 718 during the early NARA PERIOD in classical Japan. The rice was "no longer used for fermentation but marinated in vinegar instead and, during the Muromachi period from 1336 to 1573, the Japanese people began to eat the rice as well. Years, in fact, centuries passed until around the middle of the 18th century CE, the food became more like the food we think of as sushi today.

The Asian Bistro aspect of eating at Nova Sushi allows for a wide selection of food options in addition to sushi and sashimi. One example, the Hibachi Chicken plate features perfectly grilled chicken (or shrimp or salmon or steak) along with lightly teriyaki seasoned crisp cooked vegetables including mushrooms, onions, broccoli, zucchini and carrot - all sprinkled with sesame seeds. Nova Sushi's "yum yum" sauce on the side allows the diner to choose which ingredients to eat in the chef-prepared state or which to dip in sauce.
