"this is my mother's gift"

this restaurant is now on my bucket list.

*however* I will certainly upset this man as I refuse to eat the food *I purchased* in whatever manner strikes my fancy, which *absolutely* includes using chopsticks to place ginger and wasabi/horseradish on top of seaweed rolled sushi and then continuing to use chopsticks as I dip the ungarnished side into the soy sauce and *finally*, still using chopsticks, to shove the concoction into my mouth and wince like a coccaine newb when the wasabi/horseradish kicks in.

this is weird because when i was eating sushi in japan, the chef came to me and said no the proper way to do it is never dip any of the rice in the soy sauce u dont want any rice in the sauce you must dip the ginger in the soy sauce and then spread the sauce on the sushi with the soaked ginger, and eat. so obviously people in japan all have their own ways there is proper way to eat sushi .

Cdawg FahShawgCdawg FahShawg (19 days ago)
I dont care what these chefs say. Adding additional wasabi or soy sauce takes away from the flavor combination of the fish and rice. Wasabi should be added by the chef. If it is not, it doesnt need it. Soy sauce only works on very bland nigiri but if its bland why are you eating it anyways? Ginger lingers on the palate and gets incorporated into the next piece. It does not cleanse the palate. The best way to cleanse the palate is to drink japanese beer with your sushi preferably sapporo.

Americans KNOW that MOST wasabi is actually made from horse radish. it's rare to find quality REAL wasabi because it is difficult to cultivate.

lovelyxskinnylovelyxskinny (21 day ago)
when the chef touches the food with his bare hands, you'll be eating at least 20 pieces of his dead skin. yum! happy eating! 😎

I prefer to put the ginger on top of the sushi or sashimi, and then either pour some soy sauce on top, or dip into soy sauce cup. Also, I never use chopsticks.
