But who thought this up? How did it occur to someone to say, “Yeah, that fire thing is pretty great, but let’s skip the cooking and go right to raw fish. Preferably with little balls of rice. And all that time we don’t spend cooking? We’ll use it to make the presentation pretty.”?
The part that I really (really, really) don’t understand is the mix of sushi and tempura in the same bite. I’m sure some people (possibly even you) enjoy the crunchy texture and the warm with the cool. I am not one of the people.
But I do like sushi. And great company during dinner.
