Found this page on AskMen.com regarding sushi. As a self-proclaimed general sushi/fish lover, I was curious as to what the people from the homeland of sushi viewed this delicacy.
Like most of – if not all – of you here, going to a restaurant that serves sushi is always a wonderful experience. While not exactly the most filling foods, sushi to me is an art in on itself. From what I’ve gathered, actually making sushi takes time, training, patience, diligence, and a certain amount of grace to be able to handle the pieces of fish (and other types of foods) that are included in this art form.
Being from the US, a lot of the traditional rules are watered down and/or not stated explicitly. Despite this I’ve experience quite a few of these rules myself whenever I’m with friends, acquaintances with experience in Japanese food, or with my Aikido group in the past. Can someone confirm these rules of etiquette? Also if any of you know more rules that this list missed, please add some more, we’d love to hear from you!
I’ve personally done #8 and #4 because theses rules are the same in Chinese cuisine. And if any of you were born in an Asian household (Chinese, Korean, Filipino, etc. ) #2 should sound familiar as well!
Without further ado, here’s Top 10 rules of Sushi Etiquette, Enjoy!
