FIRST SUSHI EXPERIENCE in Japan With John Daub From "Only in Japan"

  • Published on Jan 1, 2019
  • I don't eat sushi, but I thought I'd give it a try since I've been to Japan a few times already. I met up with my friend John from "Only in Japan" so he can show me what sushi is all about. I have to say I liked the tuna a lot! With his help, I had a great and fun experience at Sushizanmai.

    I'll never understand the fuss about's 90% rice and 10% raw fish, unreasonably expensive, yet people go crazy about it. I think if it wasn't that expensive people wouldn't give it that much attention..

    Much respect Mike! I am Asian and yes I am one of those rare Asians that hates sushi. It's not the flavor, it's the texture I can't stand. I love steak tartare... Go figure. Lol

    The way Mike keeps his chopsticks in hand and gestures and gnaws on it really bother me. I lived in Japan for 3 years. You are suppose to set down your chopsticks between bites and never point at people with it. It just seems rude.

    "They put the wasabi between the sushi and the rice." ...
    The rice IS the sushi. Everything else is garnish and flavor. Raw fish is not sushi and in fact is not required at all to qualify as sushi.

    I’ve been around a good deal of Japanese, including my husband lol, and they’re the ones that taught me to put the wasabi in the soy sauce. I didn’t do it for the same reason, I thought it was a faux pas too 😂 I use a lot more than they do though lol wasabi>shoyu for lyyyyfe, i always dip a nice paste of 80% wasabi to soy sauce 😂😂

    So happy you finally got over your sushi fear, idk how John finally talked you into it 😂
