    sushi is usually raw fish on rice.
    sashumi is just pieces of raw fish.

    maki rolls are sometimes called sushi and are good for beginners. I like shrimp tempura roll, dragon roll, california roll, spicy salmon roll.

    they usually have lunch specials called bento boxes where you get an assortment of japanese foods, including sushi. $7-$9 good way to try things out. Watch out for the green mustard!

    You gotta try the raw quail eggs. I had to slam a couple bombs first but raw quail eggs are great.

    I can tell you for a fact, having been a scuba diver and dh being a spearfisherman, fish should not smell or taste like fish(if that makes sense). Really good, fresh fish, has no smell.
    We love, love sashimi or just good raw fish with all the sides. Our kids, including dd(just turned 8) love it and she will fight you over it so, will mommy.
    I could live off it, awesome. I just found it about 10 months ago and always thought is was gross. I did not realize what I was missing.
    You won't look back "if" you get good quality fish, plus it is good for you!

    I like to mix tamari sauce with wasabi and shaved pickled ginger.

    Guys! I had my first sushi experience today!! i loved it.
    I had the cali rolls and salmon rolls with wasabi, ginger, and I think it was soy sauce it tasted very saulty. I had them rolled out and the texture and taste was awesome! Are you suppose to eat the whole roll at once? cause i just jacked the whole thing in my mouth. I can't wait to go down to state college and try more advanced ones, cdause this resturant didn't have very much of a selection.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Hello Mr. Coffee,

    Yes, you cram it all in your mouth at once. Enjoy!

    I never managed to cram a whole one in my mouth at once. It just doesn't work for my small mouth. The Wasabi will open up your sinuses for you.

    I love wasabi. I use it on everything at home Yum. I'm serious, you'v got to try the quail eggs. They're so pretty sitting there and they're yummy.

    As far as cramming it in my mouth. I always have a napkin at hand to cover my maw while I chew.
