new to Miami and confused about the Thai/Japanese restaurants

Hi all,

I moved to Miami a few months ago and have not yet figured out why all the Thai restaurants (well, all the ones I found so far) also serve sushi.

That's like combining two cuisines that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. I guess everybody would look surprised if all Mexican restaurants would start adding a full sized pizza selection to their menu, but no questions asked on the Thai/Japanese oddity that appears to be everywhere. It's so funny to read reviews on Thai restaurants online that start with 'They had the best sushi...'.

Up till now nobody could explain me where this comes from so maybe somebody on this site can.

And also hopefully somebody can recommend me a really good Thai restaurant where no sushi is served (just authentic Thai food). A good recommendation for a good Japanese restaurant would also be highly appreciated (as I love sushi as well but have not found a good place for it yet).
