Local Sushi

local sushi

It took this photograph to realise that Vienna has its own kind of local sushi. In fact, the similarity is so striking that I am now wondering why it took me 20 years to realize it.

As it's been ages since my last blog quiz, I'm offering a prize to the first two people who are able to tell me three correct toppings (example: number 2 is mushroom on egg). Anybody who knows the name of the shop where you can buy them is not allowed to participate (meaning that googling is not an option either). Post your guesses in the comments or send me an e-mail. If nobody supplies 3 correct answers, the closest guesses will win. Closing date for entries is November 12th, 12 noon CET, at which time I will post the solution and the winners' names in the comments.

Update: The quiz has ended prematurely because somebody did not read the rules. Sorry about this.

Jann said on November 6, 2007 03:29 PM:

There is no "small print" folks! And googling is (or should be) a generic term by now. (Maybe I'm more of a rule follower than I thought).

thanks, alexander, for spoiling this for everybody else. oh so smart.

Barbara said on November 6, 2007 08:03 PM:

Well Alexander, you've ruined the quiz, at least for me.

Horst said on November 6, 2007 08:45 PM:

The not-so-small print: "Anybody who knows the name of the shop where you can buy them is not allowed to participate."

Since you find out the name of the shop as soon as you look at their website, you're automatically disqualified as soon as you use a search engine. I had hoped for creative guesses rather than the correct answers.

Since you posted the URL, nobody can participate in this quiz any longer, not even for the as yet unnamed toppings. Thus, the quiz is over.

Meaning the prizes go to the two people who participated before the answers were revealed, i.e. Barbara and itha.

Horst said on November 7, 2007 12:16 PM:

Anyway, if you don't want to look them up at the URL mentioned above, the correct answers are:

1 - egg on egg
2 - mushroom on egg
3 - chicken liver
4 - cream cheese and onion
5 - egg on gherkin
6 - carrot on cream cheese
7 - crab with egg
8 - ersatz salmon (with gherkin and egg)
9 - pickled herring with onion (on egg)
10- pickled herring (with gherkin and egg)
11- red pepper (on egg)
12- spicy egg (with gherkin)
13- lox on cream cheese
14- salami
15- sardines and onion
16- bacon and egg
17- Swedish herring (with gherkin and egg)
18- tuna (on egg)
19- tomato
20- onions and egg
21- extra hot green peppers
22- sweet and sour pickled red peppers
