Fatty tuna, smoked salmon, and inari are my favorite types of 'normal' sushi... as far as the Americanized (but still tasty) stuff goes, California rolls and Seattle rolls are my top dogs.

 

If you find a good sushi place, you owe it to yourself to order your sushi omakase - leave your choices to fate and the sushi chef.

I do exclaim I very much quite enjoy similar, if not the same types of sushi you stated you did. You would appear to be superior because you share similar interest in sushi as I do.

An entire thread dedicated to sushi?

 

I approve.

 

Whenever I'm in the central business district of Melbourne, I always jump at the opportunity to grab a few sushi rolls for lunch, even if most places seem to sell them at massively inflated prices. My favourite would have to be any variant of vegetarian, although teriyaki chicken and spicy prawn are close contenders for best sushi too.

 

Oh, and a generous amount of wasabi is always required, can't forget that.

Oh wasabi, how many are the ways that I love you?

 

Wasabi peas

Wasabi cashews

Wasabi mayonaise

Wasabi potato chips

 

... and just plain wasabi. When I go to sushi places I don't actually put it on the sushi. I eat it. By itself.

There's a nice sushi bar right down the road from us that has all kinds of things I always try out. However naturally I don't really like the whole chewy meat texture (seafood stuffs :s) so I only pick the most appetizing, which is usually spicy tuna or crab something. Dunno the names, I just randomly pick off the menu. :P

 

I know for sure I've had one before called Tamago which was just egg and some other veggie stuff thrown in, and California rolls sounds familiar too.

That varies a lot depending on what exactly it is that you're eating. I don't recall what it was, but I remember getting something that was like trying to chew through rubber at a sushi restaurant I went to a few weeks ago... getting it down was almost painfully disgusting.

Wait, there is sushi that is not fish?

Sushi, in and of itself, has nothing to do with fish, fish is just one of many common toppings and/or ingredients. :)

From Wikipedia,

 

Sushi (すし、寿司' date=' 鮨, 鮓, 寿斗, 寿し, 壽司[sup']?[/sup]) is a Japanese food consisting of cooked vinegared rice (shari) combined with other ingredients (neta). Neta and forms of sushi presentation vary, but the ingredient which all sushi have in common is shari. The most common neta is seafood.

I feel ashamed.

 

I have never had sushi.

 

I have always been afraid to have it :/

 

I have never had sushi before, this thread was a joke to start, but I guess not any more...

Spam sushi, I never liked sushi, there needs to be a general sushi discussion thread in Everfree Forest."

Looking at this thread makes me want to eat sushi again. It's been a while.

I do not know the names of sushi but I usually had the kind that doesn't have fish. Not so much because I don't like it but I just prefer the other kinds. Shrimp is good in sushi too.

Some people still hold the tradition of keeping live fish for sushi or meals for dinner. There's no way to tell if your fish is fresh unless you just chopped off its head yourself :)
