(The best part is that the Caribbeans et al will tell you it's not actually yam but sweet potato, but it doesn't matter what they think either.)

I had the idea to do this over two years ago...at the time I didn't know it was already being done - I had only been exposed to nigiri, sashimi, and other "non battered and fried" sushi styles...

It was messy, but fun:

I know its not proper Japanese, but I mean rolls with (prawns or soft shell crab) tempura inside, not fried sushi!

Yes, but when you say "cheeseburger", people don't say, "Oh! l love all German food! I like Spaetzle, Knoedel, and Schwenker... so good!

When you say, tempura sushi, and half a dozen people say "Oooh I love Japanese food!" It irritates me, because in no way, is tempura sushi Japanese.

Please note, that I did not say it was Japanese.

I have respect for real Japanese sushi, and things like Toro, Unagi, Sake and Maguro nigiri are all great.

Perhaps we have the same viewpoint. I truley like ALL types of food, and I hate when people eat Cali rolls and think they like all Japanese food.

Not all Japanese food is sushi. Japanese cuisine is fantastic, I agree with this statement. But there is a lot more to it than just raw fish. I personally love: donburi - various items on top of a bowl of rice, can include raw fish (called chirashi), also oyako-don which is a flavorful egg scramble with onions and chicken nabe - a pot of broth with vegetables and meat boiling in it, yosenabe is a seafood pot, sukiyaki is beef and veggies in a soy-based broth, shabu shabu is a seaweed-based broth (i believe, anyway) and involves thinly sliced beef, tofu and vegetables and several dipping sauces ramen - chashuu ramen is my favorite... tororo ramen (sweet potato) is good in small doses but the sliminess is gross sometimes. hamberg steak - japanese flavor meatloaf... mmmmm.... then of course there's okonomiyaki and a million other things.

. I like sushi, but am not overly fond of many cooked Japanese dishes. They are all a bit sweeter than I like.If I had to rank Asian cuisines, Japanese would definitely come after Chinese, Indian, Korean and probably Thai.

Tonkatsu and Teriyaki Beef have to be top ones for me.

Dont forget everyone's favorite: Nattou! If you are a gaijin (any kind not just us crackers) and can eat that then you truely like Japanese food. Personally, I can eat it, I can eat a whole bowl of it if I need to but I dont really go to far out of my way to eat it. Might I order it as a side? Occasionally, yes. Takoyaki is also quite good when made right.
