Shari is a restaurant in the Assembly Chef's Hall that just serves chirashi, essentially boxes of sushi rice served with premium fish.
Unlike Tachi, Shari doesn't require a reservation and prides itself in having the art of mixing rice and vinegar down to a tee.
This perfect combination of the two ingredients is the key to the ultimate shari, or sushi rice.
This mixing is done in the hangiri bowl: a giant tub made of special rubber that Jackie had made specifically for his Assembly stall.
The most popular but expensive bowl for first-timers is the bara-chirashi-zushi, which comes in a octagonal wooden box with assorted seafood such as salmon, tuna and piece of shrimp mixed over shari.
I loved the pairing of seafood with small bits of chopped up cucumbers and ikura fish eggs. This chirashi is really delicious and highly recommended. A small is $14.50 while a large-sized box will set you back $19.50.
Vegetarian options include the yasai-chirashi-zushi, which comes with assorted vegetables like avocado and cherry tomatoes ($14.50 for a large), and the wakame sarada, which is just seaweed salad on its own ($2.50).
Pair any of these meals with a selection of their green teas ($2 to $3.5) or traditional Ramune soda ($3) to enjoy an authentic Japanese meal.
