I always thought that the breakfast burrito was a recent Texas invention.

I'm not particularly knowledgeable about sushi but I went for omakase at Sushi Yasuda today, and what a huge difference from the day-to-day maki places I go to regularly. Yasuda-san was courteous and great to chat with and allowed me to try a large variety of absolutely delicious sushi.

I just had some tuna and salmon nigiri, and goddamn it hit the spot. It's such a wonderfully simple meal- sort of like an English ploughman's lunch.

not too adventurous but it's our fave sushi items and we were feeling like eating comfort food

(amongst others) that I remember from my trip to NYC a few years ago was the 'tekkadon' - plentiful slices of thick tuna sashimi on a bed of slightly warm sushi rice. Hmmmmmm.

My favourite sushi is uni; the person who found it funny-tasting, I think you must have had a 'bad' one because fresh uni is super yummy. When I was last in Japan (conference in Yokohama) I went into a 'plain old' sushi bar with lots of locals and basically stuffed myself with uni sushi, lovely. But my best 'uni memory' was back in Hokkaido, I went to a fairly upmarket sushi place again full of locals, and had a sushi sampler. The uni was so nice that we ordered that again, and again and again. The sushi chef was smiling more each time and the last time he made it, he must have put on triple portions of uni. I believe it was the interaction between the appreciative customer and the chef proud of the work that made it a great 'restaurant moment' for me.

Uni is like oysters. I can only handle one of them per sitting. Cleans the pallette.

Unagi and Anago are favourites. I don't think Ika works well in Nigiri form.

But isn't Sushi Passe? Where I come from the whole restaurant market is flooded with sushi eats, from 99 cent style to upper high end joints.

Izakayas seem to be the new Nipponese food fad export.

Sushi is passe for posers trying to show they're hip enough to eat the "new Nipponese food fad export". For people who just enjoy good food, it's no more passe than a good steak or pasta with fresh tomato sauce.

Please, no name-calling.

Just got back from Japan where I had whale sushi for the first time! They had two varieties - regular whale and "whale bacon".

My favorites are Uni, Ikura and Tako.

Honestly, that was not intended as name-calling at you in particular, as I know nothing about your eating habits. More of a if-the-she-fits kind of thing.

Is whale bacon belly meat, or is it just called that because of some purported resemblance to pork bacon in taste or appearance?
