What's you're favorite kind of Sushi /ck/? Mine is squid nigiri
I'm probably cheating but I always get an inarizushi if they have it, either by itself or with some seaweed / tobiko.
Eel & sake (the oily fatty kind)
I used to waitress at a sushi restaurant and we always had the most delicious salmon. It's probably the best restaurant in my town desu lol. All the servers are attractive Asian chicks. The chef always used to give me and my coworkers slices of sake sashimi (what customers would pay $8.50 for) and it was soooo good
Unagi is better than sake though imo. It's fucking delicious.
Pic related. With a light dip in soy/wasabi mixture
Oh boy this brings me back. I used to love these things.
Then I started to eat sashimi.
Philadelphia roll are the ones that have cheese, not the Cali rolls.
o-toro, or the fatty belly of the Bluefin tuna. Hella spendy though. $12 for two pieces. Pic related. The 4 pieces of sushi under the rolls.
I also like. . .
>California roll with snow crab, no mayo, +tobiko and daikon sprouts
>Philadelphia roll w/ smoked salmon
A California roll with soy sauce is truly the best roll and it's not even close. There is a reason it's the most popular roll, because it is the best.
protip: if "can/can't handle _____" is in your vocabulary, you are a manchild who pretends to love food because it's cool.
you are transparent as fuck, just go back to mcdonalds and leave the nice things to the adults.
I don't like fatty tuna,i love red tuna.It is especially Tsuna Zune!!!
Don't feel like deleting my post to add the pic
>Are you dumb enough to think that horseradish and wasabi are the same?
The average sushi restaurant is not serving real wasabi, they use horseradish that's dyed green. Imitation wasabi. The real stuff is terribly expensive so you'd only be served that at a very fancy restaurant.
I usually just sit at the bar, get omakase and ask for mainly sashimi. That's how I get the best stuff. I've had all kinds of awesome stuff that way. I think my favorites have been uni with quail egg and shiso leaf, and the time he served me half a spanish mackerel (aji) with what I think was a ponzu based sauce and pickled wasabi. I usually never eat wasabi on my sashimi or sushi (because if it's good, it doesn't need it), but I love my favorite place's pickled wasabi. I'll pick the bits out of the little bowl till it's clean.
Are you sure it's not escolar (aka, butterfish)? Escolar is very tasty, smooth and buttery, but it will give you the shits if you eat too much. It's actually one of the few fishes that are NOT very good for you.
Not op, not sure where you live, but "white tuna" is a common menu name for escolar in the US. Nobody says butterfish.
Any decent place will stop you if you try to order twelve pieces of escolar. The "fraud" thing is severely overblown, and so is the diarrhea "problem". People are not stupid.
I live in NorCal, surrounded by japs and asians of all kinds. It's fairly common to see escolar called butterfish here (or just escolar). As a matter of fact, I've never seen it called white tuna, but I've heard of it being called that. And you're right, any decent place will stop you if you try to order too much escolar, but there's a lot of unscrupulous places that don't give a shit. Many people can't tell the difference between a good sushi bar and a bad one.
no, it doesn't
but many countries serve a colored, prepared horseradish paste as wasabi as a cheap substitute, although it and real wasabi are quite different in heat. Why? Because availability and cost of fresh wasabi limit it in many places.
"Sushi grade" isn't really a thing. There's no regulation for that. At least here in the states.
If you learn how to shop for fish properly, you can eat the salmon you bought from the grocery store raw. Just please keep in mind however fresh they claim to have received it, it's probably safe to add a few days to that.
Another thing to keep in mind, wild salmon may have parasites. Those parasites are killed by deep freezing them. If you're going to do sushi I'd get it already frozen, or freeze it after purchasing. No use taking unnecessary risks. The stores are required to inform you if it is has been previously frozen or not, and where it comes from, in case you're worried about quality degradation, or whatever else.
My two cents. Good luck.
I absolutely love salmon because of its clean taste. I want to enjoy other fish but they all seem to pale in comparison. I've tried tuna sashimi but it's so strong desu
How do I into other fish?
Citations? I mean, I understand the farm's tendencies to taint the areas around them, and the living conditions causing a large number of the stock to die before being processed, but "most"?
I do agree. I'd avoid most farmed salmon. There's a myriad of reasons to do so. It's still wise to have the salmon frozen, regardless. Just buy it frozen from the market unless you have a deep freezer. I don't know of a regular home refrigerator that can get to around -20C. Maybe I'm just retarded.
Don't be retarded with raw fish, dudes.
its generally wild caught and its flash frozen at like 0F for 24 hours or like -20F for a couple hours
i pulled those numbers out of my ass but its something to that effect
parasites frozen in your home freezer are generally cooled much slower and far more parasites survive the process
Not really just dont eat 10k rolls. Consider sashimi if you are watching your figure. Super delicious still.
On topic, Unagi is best girl. I also have a sweet spot for local styles of sushi. California rolls, restraunt specials, etc. It's nice to try new things, and I can always fall back to Unagi if the rest turns out to be shit.
I really really like a roll for a local joint that is baked in foil. No idea what its called but that shit is crazy delicious.
This has nothing to do with sushi, per se, but I made the woeful mistake tonight of going to my favorite local ramen house, only to find it fucking overrun with cosplay weebs. Apparently there was a convention in town today and they ALL fucking decided to overrun the two good ramen houses, which are right next to each other. I had to wait fucking 45 to get in and eat while being surround with either groups of japanese girls with "super kawaii" animal backpacks and hat with ears or fat white girls and their idiot boyfriends wearing fucking cosplay costumes that squeezed their fat thighs and asses right out of them. MFW.....
I wish I had gone to my favorite sushi bar instead, even though the ramen and takoyaki was top fucking notch.
im a pleb and only like spicy or tempura rolls, and dont even know what to order besides those. I actually like 'sushi' from grocery stores more than 9/10 sushi bar/restaurants my friends have brought me to.
Salmon nigiri best.
Stores near me sell tempura with their sushi, like tempura prawns and that. I like tempura prawns but are they sushi?
Never trust raw fish from anywhere but from a real sushi chef. Anyways, doesn't even look like you got any raw fish in there.
>It's nice to try new things, and I can always fall back to Unagi if the rest turns out to be shit.
That's because it's babby's first sushi and is literaly made in Japan. Cooked there, slathered in BBQ sauce and shipped to every sushi restaurant in the states where it is warmed in a microwave and served to you. It's all the same from the same place.
Grow up and try some real sushi, pleb.
No favourites, but I generally like eating white fleshed fish nigiri along with tuna nigiri. Some of my favourite white fish are bonito, mackeral, herring and snapper. It just tastes so refereshing and interesting, with a bit of sourness and fishiness but not over the top.
A good salmon nigiri is practically unbeatable in my opinion. I did have some incredible sashimi once but I have no idea what fish it was. It was kind of yellowy.
Maki rolls with smoked salmon on the outside
caterpillar rolls are great, i really like octopus but it's usually too expensive for me.
I honestly wish I still enjoyed anime and the most recent dramas weren't such crap. Its extremely difficult to get any kind of media out of Japan that isn't anime, manga, or big name j-dramas. Its hard to get Japanese language media for studying the language outside of Japan.
Japanese people just don't pirate and the old people refuse to retire or die and when they aren't actively fighting new technology they are assuming that there is zero demand for any of it outside of Japan and refuse to export. When someone finally forces them to try, they do an extremely small trial and don't do anything to support it, and when it fails because a lack of support and lack of consumer knowledge they say they knew it was going to fail from the get go.
My gf likes to go to cons so I get dragged along pretty often. Stings me deep to see what happens to good restaurants because of the con. Like it would be one thing if it was just some fat nerds eating food in a costume but they just can't stop themselves from being the most disgusting human filth possible.
So technically its the only authentic sushi since its prepared in japan and not burgerland? :^)
I have one of those in town but its 10 bucks for lunch. The quality is what you would expect but they go very light on the meat, heavy on the rice/sauces, and limit nigiri HEAVILY.
That said, the food comes on cute boats and its 10 bucks so if you know what you are getting into its not a bad way to spend a lunch.
>Grabbed some california rolls from Publix.
>The Rice is fucking gross.
shit tier sushi from a non-sushi oriented place will do that, even if there is a "sushi kiosk"
at least go to a japanese restaurant to try sushi
There is an all you can eat sushi place near me for 22 per head.
They have sushi plus sashimi and even hot dishes and its all loaded with plenty of fish, the sashimi is just plain raw fish slices
None of my Japanese friends ever followed this rule and most of them didn't even eat it unless it was part of a pack since its the kind usually children like the best and everyone else would rather just get full on fish
>go to this sushi place 45 minutes away because it's the best place to get sushi around where I live
>hear my college is planning on selling sushi to students
>hell yeah sign me the fuck up
>try it out one of the tuna rolls
>it tastes like fucking catfood
>it's literally ground tuna from a can
>rolls are so huge I have to eat them all in two bites
Apparently they were made at an authentic Asian place in town, but taste and texture were so jarring I couldn't finish them.
>which is worse
No, it isn't worse.
The dead know only one thing: It is better to be alive.
Inari and Shitake if you want to stay traditional but want something with taste. Nothing like veggies in soy sauce and sweet vineger to make veggie sushi a good choice and order it all the time as a side. Tamago also counts.
But fish wise I am gonna need to give it their own category of silver (meat and fat), white (pure fish meat and fatty.
Silver fish: I definitely like yellowtail.
White fish: I go for squid
Fatty Fish: Sockeye Salmon if casually ordering. But when I am at nice Bluefin tuna belly.
I like tuna, octopus, and eel (fried? Unagi I guess)
I also like the fancy rolls and the bastardized deep fried cream-cheese roll covered in sweet sauce.
But I like to get the chefs special, a bastard roll or two. Normal roll even? If I hate money I'll get the bastardized deep fried abomination as a desert roll.
Usually just a chefs special
If I'm at a cheap ass place, salmon belly nigri and Dragon Rolls are the LEAST I expect. Negitoro don/ hand rolls as well. Salmon ikura oyako don is also m way of indulging in delicous irony, google it up kids.
If I'm at a fancy place, we shift gears into the chef's moriawase. I'm paying top dollar for the chef's skill with a knife and well-honed eye for the source. So really, anything goes here. uni, saba, otoro, chutoro, hamachi, kampachi, aji, listen, if I had the time to memorise every fish I was eating, I wouldn't have the time to savour the flavour.
NOW we're talking.
This reminds me of that time I was at that one restaurant in this one country. Their specialty was shrimp sashimi and uni served over caviar. Good times, I tell you. Good times. Pic related.
Boston Mackerel, sweet fucking jesus
same goes for surf clam, roe and tamago
Had this today. It was called Alaska rolls if i remember correctly. Don't think it's authentic, but was good
>no bbq eel
Holy fuck /ck/ really you're such a disappointment.
Jesus I was going to say if no one has said this than there is no hope for any of you. Youve redeemed all of ck anon.
Also why is everyone trying to sound cool with the Japanese names instead of just saying what the fucking fish is?
I've had it.
It just reminded me of those really fucking awesome Japanese omelettes. Throw some small grain rice in with some nori and that's it.
It's great but it's definitely like "you just gave me a fucking big mac when I wanted a prime tenderloin."
I like raw sweet shrimp.
Shame the only shrimp sushi I ever encounter in America is the fake raw sweet shrimp sushi since the shrimp sushi that usually gets served a majority of the time is another species and lives in a totally different ocean.
iirc it's actually the other way around
farmed salmon have LESS parasites than wild salmon, which seems strange to me but hey.
Just try it, good god. Or try raw steak! Hella fucking good.
My favorite japanese/korean place had an appetizer of raw steak on a bed of pear spears with an egg yolk on top. It was so goood!
I'm from Philly. I'm so sorry we invented this. Literal barf.
Sushi has nothing to do with rawness. It is about the rice, which actually needs to be cooked.
You are probably thinking about sashimi. You pay too much attention to popular media, and not enough to the real world.
This is probably my most favorite thing that I order when we go to a sushi bar. So rich and indulgent tasting, it's like swallowing the cum of the gods.
It's Japs, bitch. Or call them whatever you like.
Just like we're called "whites", as a generic term for anyone of caucasian decent. No one calls me German just because that's the ethnicity I'm descended from.
Because the term was used in a demeaning manner in Anti-Japanese propaganda in America during WWII and Japanese encampment. Politically correct types have pushed against the use of Jap in the mainstream post-WWII because of that. Even English-language media in Japan does not shorten Japanese to Jap even though its most logical way to shorthand it. The politically correct way is to use "J", like J-pop.
I just asked my Japanese friend, and he doesn't understand why any Japanese would be offended by it. I'll trust the opinion of an actual Japanese person on the matter over the opinion of some non-Japanese SJWs.
Of course most in Japan would be oblivious. The term was imbued with derogatory in America, not in Japan. It's the Japanese-Americans that object to it's use. However, NHK in Japan would never consider it's because they have lots of Japanese-Americans and other foreign correspondents.
I'm going to the yearly Japanese festival in the city near me next month. I'll ask the opinions of Japanese-Americans while I'm there. I won't be able to report my findings to you, but you'll be in my heart.
You need to learn how to stop thinking of everything in terms of how oppressive it is and start looking at intent.
There's really not much contempt aimed towards the Japanese from the English speaking world in the modern day. Almost every time you see see "jap" on the net, the poster is not expressing the idea that he hates the Japanese, he's simply abbreviating "Japanese". The term is not being used in a derogatory manner. In this usage, it's more like a nickname than a slur.
>Another white person telling minorities how they should feel about historically racist words
Asian people are finally starting to realize they shouldn't just "let it go" since it doesn't seem to help them much in the long run, just initially.
>another minority telling white people that their opinions don't matter, AKA trying to silence them
This is not equality. You are a hypocrite and a racist, and white people need to begin striking back at people like you.
So, here's a question: The Japanese word "gaijin" is in a similar boat. It can be a term that's just as cold and derogatory as it sounds, or it can be a casual term with no derogatory meaning.
Am I, as a white man, entitled to wander into Japan and demand that they stop using the word "gaijin"? Do I have a right to tell them what they're thinking when they use it, and to ignore anything that they have to say on the topic? I'm in a racial minority the minute that I step foot in Japan.
If you think that it's presumptuous for a white man to act that way in Japan, you have a racist double standard. If you think that it's justified, you're silencing the Japanese while claiming to fight for freedom and equality. Either way, it's bullshit. And so is this.
ah but you see, as a white man you are always wrong and always the oppressor. even if that defies all evidence in a given situation, remember that as a white man you are inherently evil and deserve to be subjugated. haven't you been paying attention to the internet over the last 5 years?
Just like "jap"! Except when it's not, again, just like "jap".
White people really need to begin openly calling this out. We have no obligation to stay silent while people who claim to be fighting for freedom and equality try their hardest to take away our voice. On the contrary, we have an obligation to fight back.
You're really blowing the SJW thing out of proportion. Take a break from your little war-torn bubble once in a while, you'll notice that few people are actually aware of your 'plight' and even less people care.
Spoken like a true cuck. I'm glad you are able to live so comfortably with a cock up your ass, some of us just can't live that way though. Cheers anyway, and tell your wife's BF I said "Hello"
But there is no cock. You people waste so much energy, you take all this dumb microaggression to heart, and you can't imagine that the world is different for anybody else. You lead such soft western lives, why are you pretending like we're on the brink of some new civil war.
>white people are getting robbed, assaulted, and murdered in the streets by black people
>men are being treated like rapists by default and are stuck in a situation where being with a woman holds a high risk of winding up with nothing by alimony and child support
>a large number of members of both communities attempt to pin these on white people and men, completely avoiding any counter-points using tactics along the lines of >>7252472, where they simply dismiss their points as inherently invalid because they're white and/or male
>this is no big deal
Please, explain this to the business owners who had their shops thrashed and the people who got bullied on campuses by BLM protesters, or to people who are in jail over "rape" (consensual sex, but woman felt uncomfortable) charges.
Okay, you had a couple riots, and some people were wrongly convicted (supposedly). We'll pretend this is significant. It's where you think people are blaming this on white men that you lose me.
These are such isolated incidents. A guy shot a guy and people got mad. Protesters overreacted. An uncertain number of women lie sometimes. Some people are blaming other people.
Crime happens (and not just to white people) and life isn't always perfectly fair. I'm still not convinced there's any conspiracy behind all this, or that any of these things are related.
This is how they did it in the Edo period, uncultured gaijin. Everything after Meiji restoration has had the rotten hand of imperialist america influencing it, so it doesn't count as REAL culture.
Tuna is overpriced and overmemed. It's literally hunted to near extinction because people "gotta have that tuna sushi, senpai". Salmon is my preferred fish. A pink, marbled cut for the pink, marbled European.
Weeb, please get your head out of your ass. Imperialist America DID introduce and enforce that practice. Even then, the pop-culture you adore and wank over is all post-edo culture, so how can you say you love "Real," Japanese culture if you can no longer participate in it?
Not that the native populace would want you to anyway, you're a disgusting nerd to them, just as you are to us.
The problem is that these things are a part of a prominent culture. And not a fake culture like "rape culture", where feminists pretend that dudes are giving each other high fives after raping a girl so that they can act like this is systematic oppression.
Black kids who take their education seriously and have no intention of behaving like criminals get accused of being cowards and "acting white". I've seen this first hand. Within the inner city black community, there's a strong peer pressure to lead a criminal lifestyle. It stems from Malcolm X culture hypocrisy, where they want to completely reject the white community but also be accepted by the white community.
Women are encouraged to see men as dangerous and male sexuality as creepy, even when while they put women engaging in the same sorts of behaviors on a pedestal. If sexual assault were as common as feminism wanted it to be, this might be justified, but as it is, it's just anti-male fear mongering egged on by political arms dealers who profit from the conflict. Thankfully, this "women as perpetual victims" mentality is collapsing by itself to some degree, as women work to gain money and authority, but it does need a push from men if it's going collapse entirely, especially in regards to sex politics.
And I suppose that getting more to your point, when problems brought about by these cultures arise, these communities never, ever point the fingers directly at themselves. It's always the white man.
They don't ask why cops feel the need to shoot first and ask questions later when dealing with the black community, or ask the white person why he or she crosses the street when a group of black men are approaching. They simply yell "racism".
They don't ask men why they aren't marrying. They simply chalk it up to men being selfish pieces of shit.
Some of my favorites.
Toro, Hamachi Toro, Salmon (Sockeye) Toro
When I was in memphis, I had a fried catfish and cucumber roll. To this day, I think it was one of the most amazing things I've ever put in my mouth.
its called a black widow. its made with same ingredients as a spider roll, only the soft shell crab is deep fried and cut in half to form the legs , the slices are arranged in two circles with eel sauce down the thorax and a design drawn in sriracha on top, SushiTatsu , Fairview Heights IL
absolutely favorite, just straight tuna sashimi. I could eat that all day erry day.
after that I fucking love anything with eel, and avacado with the brown sauce (teriyaki maybe?) on it. the names can vary a bit but usually I see it as listed as a dragon roll
I can't stand eating cephalopods. They're just squishy little pals. Think of the squishy pals.
Tuna in general I love
Tuna Tataki I had at my local Japanese resteraunt. Good as fuck
Yes, and that makes it a substance called wasabi and emulating wasabi but not the actual product. It is inaccurate to call it actual wasabi.
It's comparable to the faux crab that people use in California rolls. It's a processed stick of multiple kinds of fish labelled as crab. That doesn't make it real crab even though it's just called crab on most menus.
>Women are encouraged to see men as dangerous and male sexuality as creepy, even when while they put women engaging in the same sorts of behaviors on a pedestal.
What is an example of this?
Is there a reason why the shrimp, the best piece, comes in a very small number on any sushi plate that even has them?
Other than that, normal salmon piece is always great, and tempura is also delicious.
