However, in other news, it was reported that a restaurant in San Diego have decided to go high tech in an effort to appease or assure their sushi-loving customers that only ‘real’ fish is served at their sushi outlet. It is common for anyone to cheat just a little when the customers are not looking but not Rob Ruiz who runs the Harney Sushi in San Diego.
The codes are printed on rice paper with water-based ink and stuck to Harney’s sushi. Diners who use their smartphones to scan them will soon be able to see the state of a species’ global stock, where their fish was hooked, and even the actual faces of the fishermen behind the catch. Sometimes, you don’t even know what is in your California Roll.
Can we ever be completely sure about what we are eating when we are eating out? According to Ruiz, they are doing everything they can to assure their customers about their integrity and commitment to providing only real fish. Rolled out plans includes printing a QR Code on edible rice-paper and then served along with the sushi. When the dishes arrive at your table, take out the smartphone, scan the code and it will show you where your fish came from, indepth data about the fish’s sustainability and what is more impressive is that it shows you the fishermen who caught the fish in action.
The reason for this bold move could be the rise in fish fraud in California which got almost every sushi-loving person freaking out. Will this assure customers enough? Well, the outlet reports that sales of their sushi have more than doubled so, it could be a good thing after all.
