Eating Sushi

Instapundit is linking to lessons on how to eat sushi by Noriko Takiguchi. So far it is a five part series.

Amybear and I are sushi nuts. Making it ourselves is a fairly time intensive process. Cooking the rice properly takes at least an hour and half, if not two. Getting good fish isn't that hard, most supermarket fish while not excellent is good enough provided it is fresh. It can be troublesome though, we only have the time on weekends but fresh shipments come in on a monday, wednessday, friday schedule. If you want to make your own sushi, get to know when the local markets restock their fresh fish.

Because of this we've started going to some local chinese buffets who offer all-you-can-eat sushi bars for a reasonable price. It is a good deal and the sushi, while not spectacular, is usually as good or better than what we can make ourselves and is far more convenient.

It has become so convenient that even my parents are trying out sushi on a more regular basis. My mother makes sure that she only eats vegetable and "cooked" sushi (most shellfish sushi is cooked).
