In the many years I have heard about sushi, the maki rolls and Japanese style cuisine, I told myself that I will never try sushi ever in my life and I will stay away from it because I am thinking about all the raw fish and everything and how I do not like things raw, but then this summer my great friend and sister said Hey Talin, let’s go to an all you can eat Sushi place, and so I decided, you know what? Why not, so I went and I had the Sushi and I fell in love with it. Now I am so addicted to all that, the Miso Soup, The California, Avocado Rolls, Dragon Rolls, Volcano, there are so many names for them. I tried the Salmon, Tempura, noodles, seaweed green salad, and so much more. I always said that I won’t try it, but now I can’t get enough of sushi. Its healthy and good for you and its so tasty and when you put it in the soya sauce, its extra tasty. I have become a sushi expert now. Been to that restaurant like 5 or 6 times since summertime. Once you get hooked, you will want to go all the time.
My first Sushi experience, my great friend showed me the ins and outs on what to order, the best things on the menu and choosing and selecting different types of sushi’s and rolls for me to try. The first time i went I went with the simple ones, then. They bring you tea when you get into the restaurant, they put soya sauce and this green very spicy hot dip where you mix it with your soya sauce to make it have a kick to it, they bring you a little bit of a salmon too. The second time when we went to sushi, I had the more advanced type of sushi and I loved it all. It was so yummy and it depends on how they are made. You can’t eat sushi everywhere.
I always like to try new things and I am very happy and excited that my great friend introduced me to it. I want to try to make sushi myself so that when I entertain at home, we can have a sushi night all prepared by me. I might take a course or learn to do it from online. Maybe I can become a sushi chef later on in future, but now I will just stick to the all you can eat Sushi place I go to. When we went to all you can eat, you could eat as much dessert you want like mango or mousse cake, green tea ice cream or different varieties of them, and as well as you have a selection of soft drinks to choose from as well. There was just a place mat style menu and anything on there you can eat as much as you want.
If you order too much and you leave sushi, maki rolls or something on the plate and do not eat them, depending on the place, they charge you if you leave them. They try not to waste any food.
Now, you can’t try sushi from anywhere. Do not buy the ones in the sushi boxes you see at the malls or whatever. When you go to a sushi restaurant, observe that there is no fish smells, and make sure they bring it fresh to you. Not in a box because you never know how long the ones in the box sits for. always be cautious and mindful of where you buy it.
Do you like sushi? How was your first experience? Let the sushi lovers unite. Bon Apetit!
So glad you had this experience. We love sushi. Good for you.
I never wanted to try sushi and was finally persuaded by a friend and found I really liked it. I don’t eat meat and fish so only have vegetable ones. It was the nori I really wasn’t sure about. Now I eat it often and sometimes make my own at home. Rice balls are nice too.
If you want authentic Japanese sushi, the chef has to be Japanese. Ask the name of the sushi chef and if you can’t tell if a last name is Japanese or not, Google it. I am not saying that ONLY Japanese people make good sushi… but that is a requirement for authenticity. You can also say, “Good rice, what brand is it?” Google the answer. Good restaurants use premium rice like Nishiki. Glad you enjoyed.
I’m a sushi lover and I have been traveling around the world looking for the best sushi ever. Of couse in Japan you’ll find the authentic one, deliciuos! but I found in Florida an incredible place http://www.hogsnappersshackandsushi.com/. Wow they have the best sushi around. If you live in Florida or are planning to go, visit it. You will not regret.
