Re: hooked on sushi

Giant Eagle has a sushi counter with a sushi chef making it right in front of you. I've never ordered from it but other that have said it's pretty good.

I eat sushi by myself all the time, 'cause none of my friends like it. Don't be a wuss ... go for it!

Re: hooked on sushi

I can eat sushi, just not a big fan. Don't see the draw. Personally rather put some shrimp, scallops, tuna, salmon, or soft crab on the grill.

Would like to know if there is anything I'm missing or doing wrong? I do know that
not crazy about raw fish.

Dude, I understand... some of my friends I can't drag to a sushi joint if they're life depended on it... some people just can't do raw.

I guess sushi lovers have a palette that has taken to the uniqueness of raw fish... taste and texture are completely different than cooked. As much as the quality of fish, your sushi eating experience depends just as much as the chef's skill level... he/she makes all the difference in the world.

Honestly, I really wasn't into sushi until I got into college and was introduced properly... until that point, I'd been thinking sushi was all spicy tuna and california rolls (didn't really see what all the fuss was about). Then my fanatical sushi friends took me to my first nigiri spot. Then it was all over.

Re: hooked on sushi

I was raised eating seafood and several family members were watermen. Years ago as a kid ate a lot raw oysters and clams. Now with all the polution eating raw seafood worries me.

My concern is how to truely tell difference is sushi or sashimi grade tuna, salmon, etc.

Hard to argue with someone's taste. You tried it and it's not your favorite. The problem I have is with people who say that sounds gross, I'll never try that - and don't. That goes for not just Sushi but many kinds of food. So many people are unwilling to step outside of their comfort zone and try new things.

You should see me arguing with Japanese people about how delicious deer meet is. They are like GROSS, I would never eat Bambi. Meanwhile they will order raw pickled jellyfish with beer the way we order Buffalo wings (it's delicious btw).

If the pickled jellyfish is anything smells anything like kimchee...I'll pass.

Re: hooked on sushi

Ok I figured out why Supermarket sushi sucks so bad. It is because you always get it so cold. I had leftovers (very rare) from my favorite sushi place the other day. When I took the leftovers out the next day and ate them straight from the fridge it tasted horrible. The cold totally ruins the texture of the rice.

Supermarkets have to keep it cold since it is not made to order.

The majority of Sushi that Americans is cooked, just so you know. I'm not trying to sway you, I just don't think that most people who judge Sushi before trying it understand that most of what they would eat isn't raw.
