Gen Z Is Killing British Food But Loves Sushi, Says Sushi Restaurant’s New Study

Sensational

It’s a well-established fact that Gen Z is killing everything previous generations held dear, but what will they keep alive? According to one British sushi chain ... Sushi! Sensational.

A study of 1500 18 — 29 year-olds (most of whom wouldn’t actually fit into the Gen Z age range) commissioned by Sushi Daily found that 67 percent of them love “sushi or sashimi,” but 65 percent of them had never even heard of jellied eels. Further slander came for the likes of Welsh rarebit, haggis, and bubble and squeak, which the study describes as “consigned to culinary history” because 21 percent of 1500 people don’t know what it is.

Despite these doom-laden projections, traditional British foods can hope to fight another day. Gen Z might take Brussel sprouts, Facebook, and literally every brand, but it cannot take this isle’s regional cuisine.
