On my last night in my hometown before I take off for school, my family decided to take me to our favorite sushi restaurant. It's a very popular place, and is always one of the highlights of my trips home. Tip: if you really want good sushi, sit at the bar. While this tends to cost more, the best sushi is the freshest cut of fish with the rice right from the sushi master's hands.
On this particular day, my whole family agreed that the sushi tasted phenomenal-- the key is how (this may sound funny) un-fishy the fish is. :D It has to taste refreshing, not too strong.
The 3 main colors in Japan are present on this plate: white (fish and rice), green (wasabi), and red (fish and ginger). The fish shown here is tai (red snapper).
I hope this post has changed the way you'll look at sushi, and I definitely recommend it to those of you who have never tried it!
