Actually, Ken, I am amazed that you are still on here and responded right away to my new post...because it has been almost twenty years since anybody posted on this thread!!!



I'm subscribed to 17 newsgroups, including this one. Well over half of
them, including this one, are almost completely inactive, and several
others are almost completely inactive. There's no downside to keeping
their subscriptions active, so I do, just in case something of
interest turns up.

How quickly I respond to a post in any newsgroup depends on when it
was posted and when I check the newsgroups. If it turns out to be
right away, it's just a coincidence.




It's now two years later and I still haven't seen any other posts.

Are you still here? Anyone else? Anyone (besides me) still eating sushi?

Just in case anyone else is here, I'll try to start a thread.

What kind of sushi do you eat? Just maki (rolls)? Nigiri? Or both? Or
chirashi (although that seems to be the least common in the USA)?

Personally, I eat nigiri and gunkan maki almost exclusively, but to most
Americans, sushi seems to be exclusively maki these days. The one kind
of maki that I like and sometimes order is salmon skin temaki (hand roll).

My favorite nigiri are (in no particular order)

Maguro
Sake
Hamachi
Madai
Aji
Sawara
Saba
Mirugai
Amaebi (with the deep-fried heads served separately)
Tako
Ika
Uni (really gunkan maki, not nigiri)
Ikura (also gunkan maki)
Unagi
Hotategai

I never order all of those at one meal. They're not always all
available, and besides, with two of each, it would be too much to eat
and would cost too much.
