I eat sushi often & have never had issues with it. Sushi restaurants don't last long if the fish isn't fresh.

Shabba: Those were good tips, thanks. I've tried sushi many times; my ex husband loved it. I just never developed a taste for it and am wary. To each his own. :cheers:

It does cook or the outside, the good thing is you can't wreck (by overcooking) the fish.

Mmm, ceviche ! :cheers:

A sushi dinner here will easily set you back $50-75.


There are a couple of places, here in East Bumfuck, where they sell excellent quality sushi for a buck a roll during happy hour. (4-6).

It's unagi, and sea urchin heaven, I tell ya!


Yes, I love sea urchin.

Call me quirky, everybody does. :)

Sea urchin is great. The sea urchin with raw quail egg isn't so good. At least not for me.

Sushi for lunch is relatively cheap. Most sushi joints around here have all you can eat sushi for around $12 for lunch, but dinner is a completely different story.

I had some seafood rosotto a couple weeks ago what included urchin and mussles. It was really lovely.

Don't listen to those who would water down ahhh burn up the true history of absinthe, rather research the facts to determine the significance of the Green Fairy. Those who can't do it themselves, get their kicks trying to undermine those who can.

I'm not a big fan of quail eggs, either, particularly with sea urchin

They're too rich for my taste, and not in a very pleasing way.

Sea urchin is rich enough on its own.

My one experience with urchin was a few years ago. My mom and I ordered identical sushi samplers and they came with urchin. Since mom knows I'm pretty willing to try anything once, she let me lead the way with the urchin. She later told me she knew it was a no-go when I reached for my Sapporo immediately upon putting the urchin in my mouth. It tasted like scrambled egg soaked in brine from the back bay. Never again...

But any other kind of sushi, practically, I'm game for.
Ah, la petite mort; such beautiful suicide.

I rank urchin up there with fried eel I had in Fez Morocco. Both are things I'm not going to try again.

I've tried Eel sushi but just not my thing. If I ever see it smoked & there is a sample then maybe.

I did. It smelled like burning fish and wouldn't stay lit.

I tried sushi once, it was once too many.
I had my taste buds amputated many years ago after an unfortunate toothbrush accident, any reviews or opinions I give are suspect and should be viewed as utterly useless.

Eel, specifically unagi, tastes like smoked salmon but with a slightly different texture. It's definitely amazing. I'm not much of a sushi eater anymore but in college I loved it. That other eel I never really tried.

Actually, I believe that Elf is getting pickled, not smoked. ;)
