What do you think of when sushi comes to mind? Perhaps a traditional Nigiri? Simple, fresh and light? Or maybe yu much prefer a more modern day spin on an old tradition with a hip rendition of a tempura style roll made with all of the fixings and then some?

This Italian chef by the name of Yujia Hu sees sushi and the realm of “rolling” possibilities much different than the average food artist. Combining his passion for a stylish pair of sneakers and his love for cuisine, Yujia is serving up a dose of what he refers to as “Shoe-shi”, Hu is making waves in the sea of sushi normalcy.
