Sushi for breakfast
The only place I've heard about having sushi for breakfast is at Tsukiji Fish Market, an area near to Ginza in Tokyo.   And have I had sushi for breakfast? Yep, at around 5.30 am, I do believe!      This is an experience anyone who has the love of sushi must definitely try when in Tokyo. There are lots to see and do in Tokyo so one might not be able to wake up so early (4 am! unless you stay up the whole night ;-)) to venture for sushi!      …

Inspired by devora's guide to eating Dim Sum, my review will consist of the how-to's and in's and out's of eating sushi.    Disclaimer:  I am not Japanese.  So, I might not be 100% correct in all of the cultural nuances and etiquette when it comes to sushi.  But, I have been a sushi chef for about a year during my college years.  I've also had my share of sushi and have converted many "cooked sushi lovers" to die-hard raw fish eaters.   Sit at the …

sushi plate
Liking sushi is probably an acquired taste, but it doesn't take long. Once you get past raw fish phobia, you will love it.  Something aboutthe deadly combination of perfectly prepared seasoned rice, fresh fish,stinging wasabi (Japanese horse radish), and some soy sauce gets youtotally hooked.    Honestly, I don't understand the mental block people have with rawfish.  Rare steak dripping with blood seems to pose much greaterpsychological challenge than almost pretty …

Yummy sushi! A great alternative to soy sauce is lemon juice and wasabi. Brings out a wonderful flavor in the fish.

Sushi is great but avoid the Soy sauce which is frequently derived from soy beans and wheat, so will contain gluten

Oh how I love sushi! It's filling, but still healthy. I need to learn how to make the rolls! My faves: spicy tuna rolls, yellowtail & eel!

Nigiri's are the way to go. Fresh slice of salmon, white albacore tuna or yellowtail hovering over a perfect sized rice strip. Yum!

Until you've tried "real" sushi in Japan, you don't really know how good this food is! The rice makes all the difference in the world!

One of my guilty pleasures, but it's only guilty because of high levels of mercury & not fat! My favorite is uni & toro!

It took me some time to overcome the raw fish 'phobia'... but when I finally decided to try... I just loved it!

Sushi is one of my favorite food types. I know a lot of people are hesitant to try it, or are entirely repulsed by the idea of eating raw fish. But there's some things to keep in mind when you eat sushi that will hopefully help you overcome some reservations about it.     First off, let's talk about raw meat. In Western culture, it was common even decades ago for men to eat a big, raw steak. Or at least medium rare, where the inside of a steak was certainly still raw. No, men …
