WIESBADEN, Germany — Sick of schnitzel? Bored with bratwurst?

If traditional German fare has you feeling a little full these days, head to Sushi World in Wiesbaden for a lighter — yet satisfying — meal.

The Asian eatery lives up to its namesake. There’s sushi galore. And it’s good. Really good.

From fresh sashimi and sushi rolls to vegetarian options, Sushi World’s featured food is tasty.

Germany isn’t known for its seafood, and sushi is no exception. That’s why Sushi World is worth a try.

“The thought of sushi used to make me sick,” said Spc. Daniel Jaggie, with the 1st Armored Division Task Force Iron Sentinel, based in Wiesbaden.

“But then I tried it (at Sushi World) and liked it,” Jaggie said.

If you’re not crazy about sushi, there is a variety of traditional Japanese and Chinese classics, such as yakatori and Peking duck. Your best bet is to get the reasonably priced buffet, offered at both lunch and dinner.

If you think an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet seems a bit sketchy, you’ll be convinced otherwise after hitting Sushi World. The food is prepared and displayed with care. You can even watch the sushi chef in action.

The buffet includes a serve-yourself soup station and a fresh salad bar. The curry chicken, sesame sauce, pickled radishes, tempura-battered bananas with honey and miso soup are among the best items on the non-sushi side of the buffet line. And you can’t go wrong with anything on the other half either.

There’s a full liquor bar, but order the hot sake or a Japanese beer (Kirin or Sapporo) to make your experience more authentic.

Take your time and enjoy the food and atmosphere. The decor is soothing with a clutter-free and modern Asian aesthetic. You can’t go wrong here, even if sushi isn’t your thing.
