what is the “safest” sushi to try first if you don’t like or are scared of raw fish?
- i don’t like sushi but my sushi-loving husband b tells me that tuna and salmon are the mildest. you could also try smoked salmon, since that’s not truly raw but sort of tastes like it. unagi (eel) is my favorite sushi but that is cooked.
what’s your favorite cuisine?
- any kind of cuisine where i can get a fresh delicious salad. i like eating food that doesn’t make me feel sick after eating it. that means that i’m careful about asian restaurants (so oily so often). asian foods are definitely my favorites but so many asian restaurants serve up oily, msg-filled food. i like japanese (hijiki, fresh cooked fish) and vietnamese (papaya salad!). i also like macrobiotic places like souen (very japanese) and i like wholesome, organic, local restaurants no matter what the “type” of food.
