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 I said 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 10 or more times. 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 named wasabi 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.
I love Asian food. Not only Sushi, Sashimi, Maki Rolls, The Wasabi Sauce with Soya Sauce, I love Shanghai Noodles, Korean BBQ Where the waiters bring you the raw meat and you cook it right in front of you sometimes. Depends which restaurant you go to, I also love Vietnamese food, Pho, Pad Thai, Vegetable Pad Thai, Chicken Pad Thai, and other foods. Do you like the peanut and peanut butter sauce you dunk your shrimp and veggie rolls? I get excited when I go to a Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, restaurants. I can eat this weekly. I want to go eat Asian food now. I am craving it.
Do you like sushi and other Asian food? What do you mostly enjoy?
I enjoy jiggly Shanghai noodles with shrimp

A light Peanut sauce is amazing! Especially on an Asian based salad.
I’m not a fan of sushi but I loved eating Soba noodles out of wooden boxes that vendors sold at train stations around Tokyo, Japan years ago. I don’t know if they still do that but it is a fond memory.
Like you, I also had an aversion to sushi. I was, like, “Raw fish? No way!” But my cousin convinced me that it was worth a try, so I kept an open mind and accompanied her to a sushi restaurant. Once I tasted it, I was hooked. Loved it. Still do, especially salmon sashimi.
Sushi with unagi on them are the best. 😀
Yep, sushi’s amazing. I’ve been eating it for years. Some people’s aversion to raw fish always surprises me. They’ll happily eat a bag of crisps or fast food from McDonald’s (in all its preservative, gunk ridden glory), yet can’t handle the concept of fish on rice.
Just wait till you make it yourself! It’s not very hard and so delicious. Sushi rolls are always a hit when you have to bring food to a party. My faves are unagi and tuna and always with wasabi.
I agree with Crystal M. Trulove – the best sushi is the sushi you make yourself. It is such a great sense of accomplishment when you make something so beautiful with your own hands!
