Don't combine ginger and sushi. Use ginger between rolls or bites to cleanse the palate. Although chopsticks are generally used, you're permitted to use your fingers to eat sushi (except sashimi). х Don't shake shoyu off sushi. х Only the fish (not the rice) should be dipped in shoyu. Eat nigiri-style sushi in one bite. Don't ask the sushi chef for anything other than sushi; soup, sides and drinks should be ordered from the server. Slurping noodles is OK. Do NOT rub your chopsticks together. 5 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT SUSHI Contrary to popular belief, sushi does not mean raw fish. Sushi means rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt. • Japanese people generally eat Miso soup at the end of the meal (to aid digestion). The knives used by sushi chefs are direct descendants of samurai swords; the blades should be sharpened every day. A sushi chef (itamae) used to have to complete 10 years of training before working in a restaurant. Today, due to high demand, many sushi chefs start work after only two years of training. Don't leave your chopsticks sticking up in your bowl. This symbolizes offering food for the dead. t0 takelessons Learn more about sushi and Japanese vocabulary; sign up with a Japanese tutor today.
