It is shameful to say I’ve finally tried Sushi in Japan, alone. But if you have been following me, surely I had eaten sushi before.
The truth is I have been avoiding going to popular sushi restaurant, e.g. kaiten sushi. I think they are the fast food of Sushi. It is my mistakes I did not work from the bottom to top. I tried the Omakase sushi1 first. Kaiten sushi looks not very appealing. Not they are bad, is I can imagine how it taste like so I avoid eating them.
I’ve tried to keep myself to only go to Omakase sushi, not because I’m picky. But I am getting less interested to eat food just because I need to eat food. Also less interested eating food that has no soul. I am interested in food that I know people put efforts making them.
But I cant possibly eat Omakase every time when I want to eat Sushi. There is something in between, which I would casually go now is something like: Sushi no Midori. They’re decent. They win by price with reasonable quality.
I found how you should order is to: Tried some of the grilled pieces. The white fish or in general the piece without strong features (Lean Tuna v.s. fatty Tune) requires dedications of work that only in good places could present them well.
