While I do go for sushi on a fairly regular basis, I've only ever eaten sushi of the veggie variety which, as Marc never fails to remind me, is not REAL sushi. Today, I was ready to lose my "Real Sushi Virginity" (Keep in mind, I don't eat anything that swims....even when cooked....so this was a big step for me)
I think I'll just let the pictures tell the story here......
|Cute iPad ordering system.... ooooh, sushi must be FUN!|
|Lovely presentation in an effort to disguise sushi as REAL FOOD.|
|Me, excited to try sushi and forget about my rain-induced bad hair day.|
|Hmmmm.....this is not the fun experience the iPad promised.....|
|Dear God, make it STOP!!!!!!!!!|
I couldn't even choke down the small piece of white tuna sushi, my gag reflex just wouldn't allow it. Yes, I had to embrace my inner 3 year old and spit it into a napkin. (Hopefully a little more discreetly than a 3 year old would, but at that point I just wanted the vile thing out of my mouth). It really didn't have any FLAVOUR, per se, but the texture was gaggarific. It felt like a tongue in my mouth - and definitely not in a good way.
I think it's safe to say my "real sushi" days are behind me but, if nothing else, I can cross item #4 off my "40 B4 40" list!!!!
Now, what's next????
