|Hosted by a sushi roll and nigiri sushi|
I remember when I was a little girl, hearing about sushi and thinking it was the weirdest thing in the world, and maybe one day I would be brave enough to try it. Little did I know that by age 30, I would have every sushi restaurant in my area mapped out and price-compared :P
(And yes, I do know that the word "sushi" technically only refers to the vinegared rice, and that even what we colloquially refer to as sushi doesn't always have raw fish. But the ones I like do, so shush. Tasty raw fishies!)
I'm not high-brow in my appreciation, I freely admit this. There's some bizarre Americanized combinations out there that I think are perfectly tasty, and that probably says things about my palate. I do not care they are delicious.
Open thread! Do you like sushi and sushi-related things? If so, what kind do you like? Are you a purist, or do you go for the one draped in avocado and then tempura-fried and then drizzled in three different sauces? Do you like rolls, hand-rolled sushi, or nigiri (the little blocks of rice with a slice of fish or something else over it) best? If you don't like sushi, do you have a favorite fall-back order when your friends go to a sushi restaurant? Do you think you might like sushi but have never had the chance to try it?
Monday Reminder! While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those! These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you! (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)
And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
