I’ve been telling people this stuff for years. Maybe they’ll listen if a Japanese guy says it.
Also, it’s almost comical to watch some people eat sushi. That whole ginger-wasabi-soy bowl mixing thing…so foul. Who teaches people that? Why?
Side note: I eat a lot of sushi out and make quite a bit myself at home. Good rice, like the man says is crucial. Buy at least Nishiki or better, and a solid cooker. They make all the difference. I’m partial to my Zojirushi, it’s musical and awesome.
