No really? I don’t get it. In all honesty, I’m not a native Californian gal and never even had sushi until about 6 or so years ago. Even then it was only California rolls (I love those things!). I slowly progressed to spicy tuna rolls. Yes, still rolls.
To be totally and completely honest, I just can’t get into the whole chunks of raw fish on a wad of rice. It’s not that I’m repulsed by the raw fish (I love raw and seared tuna), but well, it’s just too big. There’s just now way that I can take a bite out of the fish to make it more manageable and we all know that there’s just no knives when it comes to sushi.
Last night I met up with a LWL gal friend and she was craving, what else, you guessed it, sushi. I told her that I was fine as long as she knew that I only ate rolls. All was good (though my CA roll was pretty lame) and as expected, the conversation was great. But all in all, it still makes me wonder…why isn’t sushi bite-sized?
