Personally I think its the vilest food in existance and I have given it a chance on more than one occasion. just so gross and the only food I have emptied into my hand after a few chews! Was there no cookers in Japan at one stage? vile *winces face*

From Wikipedia: In Japanese cuisine, sushi is a food made of vinegared rice, usually combined with other ingredients (uncooked and in some cases cooked) such as fish.

Sushi as an English word has come to refer to a complete dish with rice and toppings or fillings; this is the sense used in this article. The original term Japanese: sushi (-zushi in some compounds such as makizushi), written in kanji, means snack and refers to the rice, but not fish or other toppings.

Outside of Japan, sushi is sometimes misunderstood to mean the raw fish by itself, or even any fresh raw-seafood dishes. In Japan, however, sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi and is distinct from sushi.

There are various types of sushi: sushi served rolled inside nori (dried and pressed layer sheets of seaweed or alga) called makizushi or rolls; sushi made with toppings laid with hand-formed clumps of rice called nigirizushi ; toppings stuffed into a small pouch of fried tofu called inarizushi; and toppings served scattered over a bowl of sushi rice called chirashi-zushi ."

Toppings (sitting on a bed of rice) can be either uncooked or cooked fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel or vegetable strips like cucumber or omellete strips while fillings (wrapped in rice and a sheet of nori seaweed)can be cooked or uncooked fish, vegetable strips like carrot, cucumber, etc.; fruit like mango, avocado, etc.. In short, sushi isn't all raw fish!

I love sushi (and japanese food) but even I have my limitations...I ate sushi with a sea urchin topping a while back and I spat it out as quickly as I put it in my mouth - normally nothing escapes my mouth....:-) It was the vilest thing I have ever eaten...VILE VILE VILE VILE!

I love sushi but it's hard to get good stuff - there are a few Japanese restaurants in London that do it really well. I don't like the stuff you get in places like Yo Sushi or M&S, nothing like the real thing. Yamamori is not bad but their sushi is expensive. Can't stand Wagamama, it's more like Chinese food than Japanese in a big noisy canteen.

Previous poster rightly pointed out that sushi often doesn't contain fish, and the fish needn't be raw. I know M&S stuff is always cooked or smoked. The main component is the rice, which isn't just boiled in water - it's made with sea kelp stock and vinegared with sushi su. And it's quite hard to do well, especially seeing as you can't get proper Japanese rice in Ireland. (Oiishi etc is made in USA)

Wasabi is grated horseradish, it goes right up my nose so I don't use it.

Never been to the sake/karaoke bar in Dublin - next venue for a mini-meet?

Was in Dundrum with my bro and they have a sushi bar in the Shopping centre. It is so cool you go and pick what you want...It is a great idea and seems to be getting loads of business...

Not only that - its flesh has been sliced up for eating and the poor thing has a skewer running through it.

well they have to die somehow when you take them from the water. At least you know the fish is fresh.

When we were in China we were served live Shrimp that had just being popped into hot chilli sauce and it was jumping all over the place. I was sick to my stomach and I couldn't eat anything.

Eww. I love shrimp and prawn but I prefer mine without innards and dead.

Sushi however, is delicious.
