Why Isn’t Sushi Bite-Sized?

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?

    Some rolls I order are too big. Like three bites! When you order just a tuna roll or something with one ingredient they tend to be rolled tighter thus making for more polite eating. I love nigiri (raw fish on rice) but it is a two bite dealio for me.

    I LOVE sushi and pretty much could eat it all the time.

    I HATE that sushi is so big.  I almost always have to bite into a roll or put the whole thing in my mouth and hold a napkin up as i chew with my mouth open.  Mental note–Sushi is not a first date dinner option!
