    Good restaurant would never give you that much wasabi; normally they would only give you a little.
    Well I've been to a crapload of good Japenese places in Soho. And they do.

    Maybe it's my delicate tongue.

    Try Asian sub-continent.

    But seeing as I was born and raised here, I'd call myself British first before my ethnicity.

    Apparently it's considered bad manners to request more wasabi in Japan as it's considered an insult to the chef who gives you enough wasabi as is required (in his/her opinion). But I just can't get enough of the stuff. The way it blows your head off.
    I thought there are only two main types of Asians -- South Asians and East Asians? Or are you going into the specifics or South-East Asians and North East Asians?

    Yup, absolutely. Hence "real" good Japanese restaurant would never give you that much wasabi. They would only provide a little for you, basically to cleanse the parasite...

    I've only had sushi twice and it doesn't seem to agree with my stomach. I do like it though.

    Hmm, I'm the opposite, the California rolls are somewhat boring but the raw fishy stuff is fabulous :cool:

    sushi is my all time favourite food EVER. it's the same in nz as segat was saying it is in aus - there are as many sushi places as there are fast-food places, and it's just as cheap (and way healthier, tastier and fresher!) to pick up a box of sushi as it is to buy a burger.

    god i love the stuff. I've had cheap sushi and the superexpensive, amazing quality stuff and i love it all.

    i quite like sashimi as well, but i find it to be really rich and i can't eat a lot of it. Whereas i could happily eat a family-sized box of sushi :p:

    I *love* wasabi peas!! In fact, I'm craving them right now since you've said that! They're so yummy though, but I don't know where you can buy them in England (when I was in Holland you could buy them from the local cheese shop)

    You should!! The first time I had it I thought it was nice... but not much. Then the next day I was just craving it, and I've had at least 3 sushis a week ever since! (about 2 years lol). It's just heavenly.

    Btw, imo Tesco is the best supermarket who does it, but ofc it's better at restuarants etc.

    Hey everyone I'm back from my travels in Japan and I msut say, you haven't tried sushi until you've eaten some in Japan.

    The fish was super fresh and the taste was jsut so much different to what we get here in the UK, I have no idea why but it just was. I went to about 6 or 7 different sushi places the best ones being 'Fukozushi' in Roppongi Hills in Tokyo and 'Daiwa Sushi' in the Tsukiji Fish Market where I took a sushi breakfast right after viewing the tuna auction. A sushi breakfast inside Tsukiji, it doesn't get any fresher than that.

    But Tokyo wasn't just about the sushi, it was also about the Fugu, the Tempura, the Kaiseki, the Udon, the Yakitori, even the Nepalese, Indian food, heck even Pizza Express tasted good out there. Didn't like the Teppanyaki so much though.

    All in all Tokyo was as much about the food as it was about the women, the bars, the clubs, the neon lights, tall sky scrapers and the old shrines and I had a fantastic time and I really can't wait to go back again next summer.

    Ok anyone want to go to Yo Sushi? hehehe

    I'm surprised at that, I got a small pack of sushi from Tesco once, it was so bad I could not even swallow it. Oh, and I love sushi. M&S little snack packs are much tastier.

    Also, could anyone recommend any good sushi places in London that would not completely blow a student's budget away? (other than YoSushi...)
