What's the correct way to eat sushi?
Masha Yudin stashed this in Food
I did not know that! "contrary to popular belief, wasabi is not meant to be mixed into the soy sauce to make a soupy paste or cloudy brown dip. It's a matter of personal preference but some of my Japanese friends consider mixing to be bad etiquette. I like to add wasabi separately, in little green dabs on top of the fish, before a quick dipping by flipping - fish side first. "
I did not know this either. Thank you for sharing, Masha!
The little infographic below that I found on Pinterest says something similar.
I have met a great many people who flatly refuse to try sushi and say they won't eat raw fish, I explain that different fish tastes different and a quality bar is the one you should go to first. these people tend to be the type who wouldn't be paying a premium for food in the first place though so that is lost on them. More sushi for me!
You seem more willing to try things than most people, Nathaniel.
