Toro (fatty tuna is really good...melts in your mouth.
Uni (sea urchin) is great too.
But the ultimate is fugu (blow fish)..it's amazing but a little dangerous and expensive.
Sapporo Draft in the summer or hot sake in the winter...nothing better.

I enjoy wasabi on sushi, it just gives it more flavor in my opinion.

Hot sake? have you tried the cold saki? That is great stuff too!

I have yet to try the fugu but recall that the sushi chefs that prepare it must be certified! I believe they carry an amount of natural botox, right? thc?

it's been a while since biochem.

I like the eel too!

Hhhhmm,

Wasabi, I have it lots of things, steak, chicken, teryaki, tempura...

But not sushi / sushimi - don't eat seafood.

Always have a tube of it in the fridge.

tuna and yellowtail are the best sushi, and wasabi works for me.

I usually make a paste out of wasabi and soy sauce to dip my sushi in before I eat it. I also like to keep some wasabi separate for that extra kick.  Smile

I love sushi - all kinds - from yellowtail to squid to octopus to uni. The more, the better.

I like wasabi with my sushi. I had a Russian meat that has a wasabi flavor to it. Didn't care for that, but with sushi is great.

Wasabi is nice, but I don't like Sushi. To be honest - I eat Wasabi on its own, or with crackers as I like spicy food anyway!


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Sushi without Wasabi is not "real" Sushi.

Asahi is nice but normally I prefer Kirin or Kirich ichiban

Now, you all got me going. I LOVE SUSHI!!!!!!!!
I have to agree Jetpilot. Uni w/ quail egg is fantastic.
Other favorites are Saba, Sake, Ika, Ikura, Hotategai and Homachi. I've had bad luck w/ Toro (in my area, anyway). I think the quality Toro goes straight to Japan. I've been to one sushi bar that had fantastic rich, creamy, NON-stringy, melt-in-your-mouth Toro. It was $13.00 for a two piece order, however. Has anybody ever had Ankimo. It's steamed Monkfish liver. Super rich but, to die for. One type of sushi that I get in Houston but not in Boston is White Tuna. It's albacore tuna (I think) that has been seard around the edges. Makes an interesting texture and taste. Anybody know why it is not available up here in the North East? Now to the question. Wasabi is a must to complete the flavor of sushi. I mix a little in my soy sauce, as well.

Wasabi goes very well with sushi and just about anything else. Great stuff!

I ate sushi just once in my life and the first time I tried wasabi it blew me away. I didn't know it was suppose to be very spicy and a wierd feeling in my nose, but I actually ate a spoonful of wasabi with my friends looking at me and i was choking so much i must've drank 3 cups of soda with tears coming out of my eyes and my face was red.

My lesson learnt: Never breath in and out and eat Wasabi at the same time. You do not want it stinging your nose passages as you would experience in your mouth.

Oh and BTW, for those of you who are new to Sushi, Wasabi is that little green paste made out of extremely spicy stuff and is used as a dip for Sushi.

(gotAirbus?)

P.S.: Doesn't Sushi have health values? I have heard Subway brags about their sandwiches being that healthy and it wasn't true (considering that you would have to run 14 times up the Sears Tower just to burn off that fat; same fat content as a Big Mac)

Wasabi is a root - in the horseradish family. Technically, it's not "spicy" - there are no spices in it. It can be described as "hot" however.

Im not real up to date on the names, but I do love sushi w/ wasabi and a little ginger. I love Eel, tuna (yellow and ive had blue), salmon, roe, octopus, and all the rolls. Tuna has to be my favorite though. Sushi jsut isn't sushi w/ out some nice hot wasabi.

I love the stuff! Welcome to the Wasabi lovers club.  Big thumbs up

MY experience is that I overdose on the stuff then get that tingling that starts at my nose then skips to the back of my skull. YEOW! g-9


here's the really weird thing though... I HATE cooked fish and seafood (except for shrimp)...yet I crave the sushi! freaks me and my parents out that I still hate cooked fish.

Mirrodie, your not alone. My wife will eat sushi/sashimi 'till she drops. She'd wake up out of a coma if I suggested going to eat sushi. But, cooked fish does nothing for her. I introduced a friend to sushi who never liked cooked fish. Now he's pissed at me for getting him addicted to an expensive habbit. I myself don't mind cooked fish but, nothing can compare to a fresh slab of raw yellowtail.

My wife's the same. She's crazy about sushi but won't eat regular fish. I can't understand it.
