  • Sushi

    Today I drove into town to collect my order of sushi for two.
    We don't have a special sushi restaurant here in Kristiansund, but I have a friend who have a friend who is a sushi-chef from Burma
    I don't know the general prices of sushi out there, but I didn't find NOK 360,- all too expencive for all this beautiful and very tasty food...






    If anyone could tell me what fish it is there with that black ribbon, I would be happy


    Mmmmmmm...., so good!!!!

    Darn you S!

    This was among one of my daily cusines in Bangkok, and you just made my mouth water. The close up's really make me long for a bite.

    But the price, 360 NOK for all that? That is way cheaper than the sushi we can find here in Trondheim at MENY.

      Yes, Jan-Olav...., just 360,- and that price also included a bowl of soya sauce and wasabi.
      At this time of night, half of the sushi is gone...., and as my better half don't eat this, needless to say I'm close to exploding

      You know, it was a female colleague who wanted this chef to make sushi for her dinner party Saturday who got me into this, but he called back and said he didn't make sushi for 4 people.
      Then I thought; well, we can't let her plans go down the drain, so I ordered for two and I also got another colleague to take sushi for two.
      Then he had orders for sushi for 8 people, and the chef made my female colleagues evening by accepting the order, I would think.
      And to be honest, from the taste of it all, it was not a big sacrifice

        What a lovely story, you all making up the minimum order like that. And it looks really yummy. Those close-up views are mouth-watering.

        Sushi has been rather slow to catch on in Edinburgh, I mean as regards restaurants –there are the pricey little pre-packaged snacks in the small supermarkets and carry-out sandwich bars that cater for the city centre office workers. I mentioned somewhere on the forum that I had once enjoyed sushi in a restaurant in Trondheim (the restaurant is still there but didn’t have a spare mealtime to check it out on my last visit). My memory was that it was much better than what I’d had in the UK because of the generous proportion of fish to rice. This seems to also be the case in Sterkoder’s examples!

        You may well be thinking as you read this “Seagull has been to Japan, so what did she think of the sushi there?” Well, the restaurants there specialise in just one type of food, and D who was with me doesn’t fancy sushi. I can enthuse about a tempura restaurant in Nagoya, even a bean curd restaurant in Kyoto (though I don’t think I’d have got D there if he’d realised what it was!), and the delicious noodles or chicken skewers at the race track at Suzuka, But no experience of the sushi.

        Oh dear, I’m not completely sure about that fish you asked about either – types of tuna and mackerel are often used.

          I'm really longing for SUSHI right now... during my many years in Bangkok, it was "the food of choice" and I was a top member of the Japanese sushi restaurant "FUJI".

            Back in 2003, a sushi party at my Bangkok condo with lots of wine and a lazy eye...

              There is hope for an unphotogenic seagull after all!!!!!!!!!
              I would never have believed it . . . . a photo of you know who that I have absolutely no desire to ask if I can use it as a wallpaper or whatever!
              (the sushi looks tasty, and that Troll fridge magnet is kind of appealing though . . . .)

                Such a young thing! I think it's great! And look at the collection of wine behind you! LOL (like I can talk just having received a shipment of two cases of wine....)

                Big S, I LOVE the photos!!! I think that sushi rice when cooked is so interesting...the translucent to opaque grains--you catch it beautifully.

                Gee--all these food shots make me want to photograph dinner tonight...I've made ratatouille and have a side of NORWEGIAN salmon to grill or bake...can't decide which!!!

                  The sushi with the black band is unagi. It is fresh water eel usually flavored with teriyaki and is often served warm. One of the few cooked suhi items.

                    Thank you for that info on the unagi!!
                    I can understand that it's often served warm, as the unagi pieces in my images looks prepared in a "hot way"....

                    Anyway, I never liked eel, but I guess when you don't know what you're eating, everything taste great!!

                      Thanks from me too Dane. I’ve made a note if that, and will be on the lookout for unagi and give it a try when the opportunity presents itself. Teriyaki taste appeals to me anyway. I have once or twice eaten eel and that was in the Netherlands, so maybe we will have some food reviews after your forthcoming holiday.
