I am generally not a fan of fish; I am very fussy when it comes to the type of fish I eat. There is however one type of fish I cannot seem to get enough of and that is Sushi. I am so in love with sushi that if I don’t have sushi it at least once a week I begin to feel at odds with myself. Yes I am well aware of the fact that I have some kind of problem, it is an inside joke among my friends and I.
So today I will be sharing a few facts about my love…sushi!
- Sushi isn't equal to raw fish. Raw fish is called sashimi and is not the same as sushi. Sushi indicates foods that use rice seasoned with rice vinegar. Of course, raw fish is the most popular ingredient in sushi, but the main element of sushi is rice.
- Green tea (it's called agari in sushi restaurants) is the best drink with sushi.
- Don't make wasabi soup with your soy sauce! Sushi Chef's cringe at this. The wasabi is there merely to cleanse the palette.
Below are my favourite types of sushi:
I have two favourite sushi restaurants and that is Yamada in Rivonia for some all you can eat and Nakamori in Douglasdale for some cheap sushi.
