Growing up, I was never a fan of Japanese food. Maybe it was because I never really knew what Japanese food was like beyond “raw fish.” Eating anything raw seemed totally wrong to me.
I don’t recall when I first tried sashimi and sushi. It probably wasn’t particularly momentous or I would remember simply loving them from first taste. It almost seems that I woke up one day and love Japanese food, all kinds.
Between sashimi and sushi, though, I would always opt for sashimi. I especially love salmon sashimi and can be at a buffet dinner and eat my fill of only salmon sashimi! I would eat sushi, but I would not say that I love sushi.
On the menu, they’re called Boston Rolls. I think they might be Philadelphia Rolls (cucumber, salmon, cream cheese). Regardless, they are the yummiest rolls I’ve ever had. I could easily down six of these babies in one sitting… and possibly even more!
Do you like Japanese food? Do you take your sushi or sashimi with wasabi?
