It is not surprising that some of us are eating sushi with fork and knife. And because several sushi rolls are too big, we usually bite a half piece of them with the rest of the ingredients dropping on our plate. When we don’t like an ingredient, we tend to remove it from the roll. Doing so affects the taste and loosens roll.
Sushi sauces are so good, that we can’t help dipping the whole piece of sushi into them. And what we taste is merely the sauce. This gives us the experience as if we eating sushi fondue. Well, it is a great way to eat and we have our own way to eat. But it is certainly not the greatest way to enjoy a sushi. And remember it is Japanese food.
Every chef has devoted their entire experience to create a special menu in order to give you the best sushi. And every types of sushi have their unique ways of being enjoyed by our palates. So if you want to enjoy your sushi, eat it like a pro, here are some easy ways on how you can have a fulfilling experience in eating a sushi:
- Use your fingers to eat sushi. It is said eating with fingers taste better than fork and knife. It’s actually more exciting to feel the sushi at the tip of your fingers before serving it into your mouth.
- Some people eat their sushi just like eating steaks: with a fork and a knife. If you like sashimi, use chopsticks to eat with. Avoid cutting your little piece of fish with fork and knife as this could be funny to watch.
- Wasabi is served to spice up the taste of your sushi and it is obviously very hard to swallow a pinch of wasabi alone. But the idea here is to add a little bit of wasabi into your soya sauce where you can feel a little spice on your tongue.
- By dipping the whole sushi in the sauce, you won’t get the maximum taste of the sushi. All you will taste is marinated sushi. Instead, dip a quarter of your sushi into the sauce and have a taste of the remaining part. The taste should be great and should inspire you to enjoy your sushi more.
- Ginger helps cut the after taste of fish and raw seafood. Add a slice of ginger while chewing every piece of sushi.
- If you don’t like an ingredient in the sushi, ask the chef to remove it so you don’t have to take it out yourself. Sometimes the taste may differ from what you expect so don’t be surprised.
- Eat every piece of sushi in one single bite. Eating the whole combination of ingredients has more impact than eating just the half part of the roll. Doing this will help you avoid breaking the sushi into pieces on your plate. If the sushi is too big, ask the chef to cut it into smaller portions.
The next time you drop by a sushi restaurant, you’ll certainly be a better sushi eater as you know the ways of how a pro does it.
