My good friend recently tried sushi and LOVED it so she convinced me to go out a couple of nights ago and get sushi. I googled best sushi places in St. Paul and found a place in downtown called Fuji Ya. More and more I got nervous thinking about my sushi experience so I decided to do a little research of my own and these are the tips I found for first time sushi goers:
Try cooked items first. Yeah, I was thinking when I read this, you think? I want it all cooked. Then I will be just fine.
Start with what you know. I know salmon. I am not that adventurous. I looked at the menu at Fuji Ya and I couldn't pronounce 80 percent of the items.
Try "vegetarian" sushi. I love this one. How could you possibly go wrong with this?
Try the items with least "fishy" intensity. Also agreed....considering I actually really HATE most all seafood....yes, some of you may be wondering why even try sushi then? Yes, I am wondering that too. Red snapper and Halibut were suggested.
There were people around us with just slabs of raw fish on a plate. I don't know how they do it. Logan went on about how it is healthier to eat raw food because then you don't cook the nutrients out of it and all I heard was BLAH BLAH BLAH:) I enjoy eating food that has been fully cooked, I happen to think it tastes better that way. Just my personal preference though. Still, the night was so fun and it had been awhile since I had seen her.
One day Logan and I will work again together and it will be chaos once again. Oh, and I would totally eat sushi again...vegetarian style.
Crazy October Fun!
