I have been eating sushi since 1981. And, I've loved nearly everything and it's really hard to pick favorites. It's easier for me to pick ones I stay away from:

tako (octopus)
horse sashimi

As for uni, I love it. Especially fresh uni (where they open the urchin in front of you). I've had sushi around the world and the best one is about 45 miles away in San Marcos, Ca. Katsu.

My sushi tastes are embarassingly simplistic, really. Yellowtail and salmon are what I tend to get most often.

Sushi is a simple food, at heart - there's no shame in liking simple flavors and textures..

Not just simple, but pure.

Wait, horse sashimi?

Horse sashimi (basashi) is pretty good actually, dipped in soy sauce. Quite tender.

--Eel is tops for me.
--Shrimp tempura is quite good too--I like the crunchy
--Salmon sashimi (or is it nigiri? The little bit of fish on a bit of rice; not a roll).

As long as the meat is of good quality, basashi is incredible! I'm also fond of ootoro, tobiko with quail egg, ikura and tai.

On the other hand, I had whale sashimi once and was a little underwhelmed. It wasn't terrible by any means but not quite what I expected for the price and international controversy.

another thing we agree on - those are almost the only sushi I will eat.
