Step One: Cleanse
Lets be honest, the main sushi we had before our trip consisted of California rolls or some variation, but nothing too crazy. Still, I love the freshness of sushi. The mix of textures, colors, and the salty tingle of the soy sauce. I was so excited to eat sushi in Japan and my excitement was not misplaced. An impressive spread was ordered for us and we first enjoyed the warm towel that was delivered to us.
Step Two: Appetize
After that a type of seafood soup was brought out, along with a savory egg custard, and a beautiful tray of tempura. Some of the vegetables were foreign to us and intriguing to taste.
Step Three: Sushi!
I was so eager to dig in when the sushi arrived that in retrospect I wish I would have taken my time and thoughtfully consumed each piece. Still, the salty ocean bursts of the salmon roe, the fatty tuna which tasted like a cloud, and the infamous uni from the sea urchin all stood out. I felt a sense of accomplishment when I had finished them all. But I instantly had separation anxiety, wishing they could reappear on that tray.
In fact, every time I see that fatty tuna in the picture, my mouth starts to water. Why did I eat that first? I just started from left to right, but had I known... Oh if only I had known!!!!
Remembering this shoeless sushi experience is enough to make me crave a return trip to Japan. <3
