What is the “safest” sushi to try first if you don’t like or are scared of raw fish?
- I think salmon is the mildest raw fish. You could also try smoked salmon, since that’s not truly raw but sort of tastes like it. Unagi (eel) is my favorite cooked sushi if you want to get used to the seaweed part of sushi.
What’s your favorite cuisine?
- Any kind of cuisine where I can get a fresh delicious salad. I like eating food that makes me feel good after I’m done eating. Asian foods are definitely my favorites. 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.
What’s your job? What’s your career aspiration/dream?
- I do operations and sales at a local retirement planning company (I work for/with my dad since the beginning of 2016… and many years growing up, too). This really is my dream – I have a flexible job and I make a different in people’s lives – I help them retire! And I like the people I work with.
