In English, it would be more widely known as a delicacy.

What's with the constant use of the word 'herkku'? Sushi is a dish.

The Finns call basically everything delicious "herkku". It is a very common word. Herkku can be pretty much anything from pizza to chocolate, or we also have "terveellinen herkku" (healthy treat) which could be something like strawberries or fruit salad.

En sanoisi sushia herkuksi.

Niin. Ehkä "ruokalaji" voisi olla sellainen sana, jonka voisi esitellä "herkun" rinnalla/sijaan. :)
