And they named their firstborn Wasabi, and there was much rejoicing across the land

Sushi. Sushi. SUSHI!

SUSHI!!!!!!!!!

Love that shit, absolutely love it, adore it, want to anoint myself with it and rub it in my hair, want to wrap myself in nori and frolic amid the fish, LOVE SUSHI! I knew I would, I knew it - and I do. Lioness hearts sushi!

When I worked in the Lisbon Ocean*arium I used to have the same thing for lunch every day in the German Restau*rant: smoked salmon w horseradish paste and latkes. Loved that shit too, could have eaten it every day. As a matter of fact, I did! Simply adore the spicy taste of horseradish. And wasabi is basically what, pray tell? HORSERADISH! I took one sniff and swooned, oy! Hullo baby! *Enter varied slurping sounds in memoriam*

Sushi! Must have more sushi, must have more sushi NOW! SUUUUUSHI!

Lorem, you're absolutely right. Sushi makes one feel sexy. I'm all hips and boobs now, all hips and boobs...

I knew it! I knew you'd love it! Which restaurant did you go to?

Lorem, he'd had it bfr and loves it too. Not so much a wasabi lover as myself though, he was a bit horrified at the sheer amount i used. SUSHI!

V., yes! But - what do you mean what restaurant?? Don't tell me i haven't told you abt our find yet! We found a place w fresh sushi, 8 pieces + ginger and radish for 5E!!! We had a pic-nic at home.

WHAT? You kept this secret from me? Sushi for 5 euros? And here I've been wallowing in deep, deep sushi deprivation. HELP! Please tell me where.

Yeah, but is it kosher? *ducks and runs away*

ironically enough, I have always stated that sushi, particularly sashimi, makes me feel positively feline.


although now I shall have to be careful about the amount I eat, so as to avoid becoming "all hips and boobs." Not, most likely, a good look for me.

I put an entire glob of wasabi in my mouth the other day, thinking it was avocado. It was right next to the avocado.

That made me dance, let me tell you.

(ps. thanks for the visit. : )

Oh it is wonderful stuff! I could eat it everyday! sushi, sashimi ... I could eat it all.

Hips, boobs and belly ;)

Oh, yes, lovely, lovely sushi. While not the best, I had some for lunch yesterday, made fresh at the grocery store before my very eyes. Lots of wasabi, of course, and lots of smacking of the fresh ginger.

Purrrrr.

I just can't get into sushi. I like wasabi, I like fish, I like rice...I just don't care for the seaweed wrap.

Hips and boobs...sushi definitely does it for me, too. As do raw oysters. (Don't ask me why.)

They make sashimi without the Nori (seafood wrap).

Udge, FUNNY. Ha. Ha. (actually, very! :DDD)

Ben, but you'd look so cute! I agree on the feline, PURRR indeed!

Elizabeth, nice to see you here! In my greed I overdid the wasabi one time - thought my eyeballs would pop out. I'm a better person now for it. *clears throat*

Kinneret, belly indeed! ;) I could as well, a monster has been created. *sigh*

Diana, I wish i could just grab some just like that. Why oh why don't we have more ethnic restaurants, and of the cheap sort?? Sushi on the run, yey!

Chimmy, I LOVE seaweed! in fact, I often order seaweed and bamboo stalks salad in Chinese restaurants, whoch throws them bcs it's never on the menu. LOVE IT!

AS, yes, it was actually very surprising! I can't imagine it without the Nori though...

DM and I stopped at this ice cream shop and last month they had a featured flavor, Wasabi Ginger. I did not overly enjoy it as an ice cream flavor, but now I'll think of you when I hear the word Wasabi. I'm glad you enjoyed the sushi and hope you and Loverboy have many more nights out of it.

I simply adore sushi and could eat it everyday. I do eat it once a week. Tuna, salmon, yellowtail, flounder, whitefish....it is all so yummy!

I mix a ton of wasabi in my little bowl of soy sauce and then when the sushi is all done, I drink what's left of the soy/wasabi. It makes a great shot!!

I drive a carpool of actors to our performances every weekend. It's just the three of us, together with a quarter of our play's props and frilly costumes.

Because we're an athletic and accomplished bunch, always talking about training for the upcoming marathon (quite unready) or today's city-wide Bridge Pedal (10 bridges, 35 miles, 18,000 cyclists, and Me); and because we ALL LOVE SUSHI; and because my last name sounds an awful lot like said heavenly substance;

My Carpool.
Is Known Both Far and Wide.
As:

Team Sushi.

Have chopsticks, will travel.

(I'll mention hips and boobs to my castmates, I just know there's something in that for us.)

No word of a lie... Vancouver has to be the sushi capital of the world... and I'm including Japan in that world.

I'm looking out my office window and I can count no less than FOUR sushi restaurants within my line of vision... and that's pretty much typical for the whole city. Living in a Pacific Rim city with such incredible Asian influences... is just... well.. DELICIOUS.

In Vancouver sushi is comfort food... the stuff that we have to eat every couple days... oh... and did I mention it's dirt cheap here?? Yep. I can get myself a nice sushi lunch (and be full at the end of it) for about the same as a McDonald's happy meal... (blech).

Ok... now I'm seriously craving it... mmmm... chopped scallop with flying fish roe nigiri...mmmm... spicy tuna sashimi...mmmm.... DAMN I have three hours until lunch...

But I don't like fish. I have been told I should try it, though, that it's good.

However, wasabi? Yum. My mayonaise is wasabi flavored, my favorite almonds are wasabi and soy sauce (yum, yum, yum!).

However, Beth is right. Wasabi ginger is not a good plan for ice cream. Blech.

Green Tea ice cream is pretty popular here in Vancouver... I quite like it... but then... one of my favourite ice creams is Gorgonzola and Pear... I'm serious... it's sooooo good...

And re not liking fish? Raw tuna, for instance... is infinitely milder than when it's cooked. Cooked fish has a much stronger taste... Raw tuna... mmmm... it's like butter...

I fucking told you sushi was the best. Go for unagi. I once sat next to a girl who mixed her entire glob of wasabi with soy sauce, after which she asked me if I was going to eat all my wasabi. I gladly gave her mine, expecting to see her brain melt out her nose, but she just shrugged and said, "My parents are Singaporean." They like it hot there, apparently. M

Beth, that is too revolting for words! Why oh why? Icecream?? NEVER!

S., can't wait to try all the other sorts, only salmon so far. /(Why does it taste smoked if it's raw?) Must try the shot!

Paul, Team Sushi - LOVE IT! (Oh I hope there is, I really do!)

Manuela, LALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU! Cheap?? That's actually offensive. Must.visit.Vancouver.STAT

D., try it, it doesn't taste like regular fish, not really. You can always not swallow it if you find it very vile. Napkins abound.

M., don't know abt that but raw codfish stinks, we're used to the salted sort. Maybe tuna is a more elegant kind of fish?

M, are you the M from Jaded S.? You fucking told me? When did you fucking tell me?

Not sure if your codfish comment is in response to my tuna like butter comment... but holy smokes... if I were ever served any sushi that had a strong fish smell... there's no WAY I'd be eating it. Seriously... salmon, tuna, snapper, octopus, shrimp,clams, scallops... when served raw they should taste slightly sweet... certainly not fishy. Recognizing of course that most of those aren't kosher... I just use them as typical examples.

Wasabi is good stuff, as is sushi!!!

Sadly, B is not a fan, so I don't get to eat it nearly as often as I would like.

Favorite: spicy tuna maki with enough wasabi to clear the sinuses for years to come!

 
At 17/8/05 06:53, Blogger The Lioness said...

Manuela, yes it was. Tuna sushi... Sounds divine!

M., who knew?? My memory lane is short and stubby, I'd forgotten all abt this.


R., go w someone else, don't make he spicy tuna maki wait!!!

Thought I'd stick up for Vancouver. Sushi there is fantastic. Proximity to fresh fish and true sushi chefs.

Mmm......
