Why Sushi?

As I was eating sushi the other day I realized that even thought I love it, I have no idea why. So here is a question to Foosters: Why do you like sushi?

P.S. By sushi I mean nigiri, and sashimi.

Because it's good and (I think) it's healthy.

Blech, I'm Japanese-ish, and I don't particularly care for the raw stuff. I might eat a little bit. But I love all the maki sushis, with shoyu and wasssssabi!

As a side note, does anyone else like putting furikake on their rice? It doesn't seem to be common.

So here is another question. Would california rolls, and other baked rolls be considered maki sushi?
I also like simple rolls. rice, seaweed, and some sort of fish inside.

He was not as hungry as the first person who ate a raw oyster.

it's because the combination of the vinegar + amino acid makes it taste 7 times better.

Fish tastes best fresh and raw, either sashmi or poki (don't know if you can get this stuff on the continent).

Furikake ... mmmmmm.

Outside of Japan, sushi is sometimes misunderstood to mean the raw fish itself, or even any fresh raw-seafood dishes. In Japan, sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi and is distinct from sushi, as sashimi is the raw fish component, not the rice component.

That being said, I love sashimi, and in particular, salmon sashimi. First, it tastes good because it is nice and fatty, although loaded with the good fats. Salmon sashimi has a great texture and weight to it. Second, the fact of it being so fresh is part of sashimi's appeal. Third, it is fairly simple -- it's not slathered in a concoction of mysterious seasonings. It tastes good in and of itself. Fourth, women love it, and it is a great dish to share with a woman over dinner. It's something light with no seasonings to give you bad breath, so perfect for a nice date. It also is typically served in a pleasant ambiance, and so we have the mental association with it. We also like that it is a delicacy.

AWwww come on!!
You eat the octopus LIVE?? So what if he's struggling for his little life and one of his arms comes out of your mouth, goes swingin' around, slaps you in the cheek and the suckers stick to your face? Do you rip it off? Will have you little red circles on your face?? What happens??

I'm no expert, but when I've gone out with friends that are experts...I've liked every single type of sushi I've tried...even uni.

Too bad my wife doesn't like it. I kinda miss it.

I love sushi. Simple design, yet with flavors that go from simple to complex. It's as easy or as intricate as you make it to be.
