Interestingly enough, there happens to be quite a presence of sushi in Chile. Although I do not like sushi, many gringos in our group jumped at the opportunity to eat sushi often. It seemed like there was a sushi place every other block. Living in Viña del Mar, seafood in general whether the supply in the supermarkets or restaurants maintained a large presence. Due to the large industry of fishing in the nearby port-city Valparaíso, this also makes sense. Also in line with this observation is the fact that many people of Japanese, Chinese, or Korean descent have found their way to Chile to live, work, or study. This may have to do with the opening in trade between Chile and the East Asian Bloc.
