    They "con" you with the rice?

    Yes, you heard me. It's flavourless and just eats up valuable belly space.

    It's not presented as anything other than what it is, though, so if you don't like it you know to avoid it and if you like it then you know you won't be disappointed.

    It's a con and anyone who buys into it is an idiot. End of story.

    Rice has it place, but not in overly expensive fish dishes. No, no, no, no, no.

    Well, as you are well aware, sushi doesn't have to be overly expensive, and isn't exclusively a "fish dish".

    Yeah, they con us with the pricing.

    Sushi rice = delicious when made properly.

    But actually I prefer sashimi.

    If it's not expensive it tastes like shit and anything other than fish tastes like shit ergo... err.... something.

    Sushi is superb

    Who knew that sea urchin was edible never mind one of the finest foods to be unearthed by man.

    As to rice being tasteless, maybe, but not sushi rice which has a number of ingredients aside from rice.

    I haven't read the thread... but I'm going to go for nay. I'm not big on fish so I find myself limited as to what I can eat.

    Wasabi eating competitions can be fun though.

    :-/

    Remembered again why I don't have it here. Paid £22 for substandard shite. I guess I should have known better than to just walk in the nearest place.

    My sister (who lived for a few years in Japan) swears she can tell the region in which the rice is grown just from the taste.

    Anyway, original question, there can be no nay, sushi is the food of gods. Sashimi's even better. :D

    If I go a while without having decent sushi then the stuff you get in most restaurants here kinda seems okay, but every so often I'll be abroad at a really good sushi place (like a place I went to in San Francisco a few years back) and then I won't be able to touch the local stuff for months.

    But yeah, good sushi and a spot of sake - big YAY.

    I'm going to San francisco in 20 days. \o/ Then on to californian which I've also heard does great sushi.

    Freaking love the stuff. There's a few good restaurants do nice stuff here.

    Yeah, toro has to be the number one all time heavy metal-laden manna from heaven.

    Other than that, my favourite = unagi

    Pickled ginger is lovely except for the nasty pink stuff that tastes of toilet cleaner.

    Love pickled ginger, it's as essential to the sushi eating experience as wasabi and soi sauce.

    Anyone that doesn't like sushi is clearly spawn of Satan. Or something like that.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I used to love Wasabi for my good value sushi fix at lunchtimes, but they’ve dramatically reduced the quality of their fish recently. It’s noticeably chewier with stringy fatty bits in and stuff. Quite grim in truth. All the other places round here are a bit pricey for a quick bite at lunch.

    Quick question. Is Tesco Sushi any good? I'm hungry and I may give this a try.

    You've never had a maki roll? It's smoked salmon isn't it? Those aren't raw. I'm a little unsure, but I'm pretty sure even the sushi with fish in it isn't automatically raw.
    Unagi is lovely. It's eel.

    But maki does not mean it's salmon. And salmon in sushi generally isn't smoked, instead it's freeze treated.

    Unagi is fantastic, it's my favourite sushi, with sea urchin roe coming a close second.

    Mmmmm Unagi.

    I collected some sea urchins last year, lovely things.

    The £3 pack with the omelette thingy is probably the nicest one they do.
