My first sushi experience in Japan was everything I hoped for. One big bar of fresh fish to eat. NO fancy rolls, just raw fish. I even tried something new with the help of the sushi chef.
Step 1: rip off the tail of shrimp or whatever it was? Eat the body of the thing with rice.
Step 2: rip open the head of the shrimp and expose the brains which was the size of a large bean.
Step 3: dip head and brains in soy sauce and slurp up and eat brains.
It was surprisingly pretty good? It kind of tasted a little meaty. Overall I ate way too much but am ready for round 2 any time. Kanpai!
