Sushi has become a huge food trend over the years and it’s best to know some of the ins and outs of eating it, so you don’t look foolish the next time you’re in a Japanese restaurant. Here are some basic tips and recommendations for sushi beginners.
If you go into a Japanese restaurant overly confident, but have no idea what you are doing or what to order, don’t pretend. If you’re with a friend that’s a sushi lover, they can see right through it. Also, if you choose a bunch of random sushi without knowing what they are, you might not have the best experience that sushi has to offer.

When you go into a Japanese restaurant, chances are they won’t have just sushi. Sushi can refer to both Maki and or Nigiri. Maki is when the outside of the roll is made with seaweed. Sashimi is just the sliced raw fish by itself, while Nigiri is the sliced raw fish a small amount of rice. There are other types, but I would say that these are the most common.
Don’t add wasabi into the soy sauce. The sushi chef supposedly already puts the right amount of wasabi in your food. However, in many places that I’ve been to in the United States, the chefs do not add wasabi at all because not everyone likes wasabi.
You can use your hands to eat your food, except for sashimi.
When eating Nigiri, make sure that you dip the fish side into the soy sauce and not the rice side.
Sushi, nigiri, etc are supposed to be eaten in one bite. That might not always be possible with some really large rolls sometimes, but just try your best. If not, try two bites?
It’s always good to try new things, but don’t push yourself to, say for instance, try salmon roe (fish eggs) or sea urchin (has a creamy, but fishy taste) your first time. Start with the more basic stuff before jumping into anything that might be a little too much your first go. And what I mean by basic isn’t some California, shrimp tempura or spicy tuna roll, I’m talking about simple salmon, tuna and yellowtail sashimi.
If you want to eat more sushi, but don’t like raw fish that much and want to work your way up, I recommend eel. No, it’s not like an electric eel. If you can get over that fact of what it is, eel is great! It’s always prepared cooked and with a sweet eel sauce.
Growing up, I was a really active person. I did things like basketball, skiing, gymnastics, band, yearbook club, honor societies, martial arts, etc. But I enjoy traveling and learning about history (I know, you’re probably thinking “Well that’s boring”). Although I can be active, I also just like simply just watching Netflix or something.
