“Stop it, stop, can you please NOT pick them up with your hands? You’re grossing me out.”
“I don’t even know what that is.”
“Yum. Yum, yum, yum.”
“Mmmm, that’s really good. Yeah, I like it.”
“Crab? That’s crab? You just told me it was salmon!”
“Guys, I really like this, it’s really good! Can we come back again next week?
And that, in short, was the extent of our sushi experience. In our group of six, four of us were well-suited with sushi, and two had never tried it. Although most of us were sushi-familiar, we’re all still in the process of learning how to correctly consume the rice, fish, and vegetables with two sticks of bamboo.
It would have been easier with a fork.
But the new restaurant located downtown, Mizu Sushi, is awesome. It’s awesome if you love sushi, and it’s awesome if you don’t. They have a full menu with great options, green tea, and mochi ice cream – delicious ice cream with a chewy outside. And the best part? It (can be) super inexpensive. For one sushi roll (which is enough for me!) the cost runs anywhere between $4-10 (so, basically, it’s the same price as my late-night trip to McDonald’s, and it’s a ton healthier, too.)
Have you ever had sushi before? If not, it’s something you have to try (it doesn’t matter if you like it or not… it’s more about being able to say you tried it at least once!)
