Sushi is definitely one of my favorite foods. It is not only the rolls and the raw fish. To eat sushi is also an attitude, behavior and experience, the sushi etiquette. In fact, most of the sushi bars around are better off as fast food joints instead of the famous japanese eateries.
Like dumping wasabi into soy sauce, or even rubbing chopsticks together to remove the splinters. And if you’ve never tried sashimi, I highly recommend it, it’s so filling and fresh.
Here are the does and don’ts of eating sushi. So next time you go to a sushi bar, you know better than ordering wine or even worse, a soda with your sashimi.

What is Wasabi?
People think that wasabi is a form of horseradish or Japanese mustard. It is neither, though it is a distant relative to the mustard green plant.
Wasabi (wasabia japonica) is a plant that grows almost exclusively in Asia. It became a sushi dressing in the mid-1800′s when the sushi preparers noticed that people who took small amounts of wasabi did not get sick. It turns out that one of wasabi’s best properties is killing parasites in the fish. Its delicate aroma and sweet undertones enhance the flavor of the fish with which it’s eaten.
