Let's Just Get It Out There.

I have a problem.



I have a big ol' crush on sushi. Morning, noon and night, I want me some raw fish. Oh, and while we're at it, could you please put some avocado and spicy goodness up on top? Thank you.

The funny thing is, I've only been eating my drug of choice for about a year and a half now. For the longest time, I just could not bring myself to try it. After months of unsuccessful attempts, my friend Katie finally insisted I get over myself and give sushi a try. As you can imagine, it was love at first bite and I haven't been the same since.

I was recently introduced to this little place by a sushi dealer. I mean - er, um - by a friend. Thanks to said friend I am now hooked on a habit called the "Sun of the Beach" roll. Next time you're in Vegas, I urge you to check it out. You will not be disappointed, but you may find yourself with a problem similar to mine. (Hey, I warned you.)

I, on the other hand, am trying to cut back to no more than one sushi fix a week. Okay, fine, twice a week. (I said it was a problem, didn't I?) Jeremy Piven and his mercury poisoning, here I come.



PS) If you are in Seattle, you have to go here. The Temptation Island roll pretty much changed my life. Also, a big shout out to my friend Todd who single-handedly taught a very uncoordinated gal to use her chopsticks with the best of them. Thanks, T!

  2. I am the SAME way - I only started eating it about a year ago and I am hooked. The one thing I love about sushi in Chicago - there are SO many options for delivery:)

  3. Have you ever tried Chirachi? It's a deconstructed salad of sushi grade sashimi, roe, avocado on a bed of lettuce. Usually served with a bowl of rice and miso soup. I crave for that like crazy since I got braved enough to try one too. mmmmm sushi and it's only 8 in the morning.

  4. Do our planet a favor, and only eat Sushi that is made from fish farmed or caught in sustainable ways. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has an online "Seafood Watch," http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/sfw_sushi.aspx, where you can learn which types of seafood are OK to eat.

  5. Yum. I could eat sushi everyday, for every meal!! And definitely don't skimp on the avocado or the cream cheese.

  6. Haha SOOO funny. And I understand completely... all I want to eat is sushi all the time too. If you create a Sushi Addicts Anonymous, I will be there sooner than you can say "spicy salmon roll" xoxo

  7. Do the words Temptation Island mean anything to you? All that chopstick advisement, and not even a shout out. I see where we're at. ; )

  13. I would go to that place if for no other reason than for the fact that the restaurant's URL is sushiwhore.com.

    But seriously? Sushi is my favorite food ever. Ever ever. I get your problem, I HAVE your problem and I love your problem.
