Ordering sushi off of the menu for the first time at a Japanese restaurant can be intimidating. However, with the right information, this experience can be fun and interesting. Here are some tips to help you order from a Japanese restaurant.
At first, decide whether you want to sit at the sushi bar or at a table. Sitting at the bar allows you to watch the Japanese sushi chefs prepare your meal. However, if you have a large group, then you’ll get a more private experience by sitting at a table.
Next, you’ll need to decide on what to order. Here are a few popular sushi bar items that are sure to have you coming back to your favorite Japanese restaurant.
This is the least fishy sushi roll you can get. This roll combines crab, avocado, and cucumber in a seaweed wrap.
2. Rainbow Roll
This colorful roll features thinly sliced avocado and raw fish on the outside. The fish is typically hamachi, sea bass, salmon, or tuna. The inside of this roll contains the ingredients of a California roll.
3. Philadelphia Roll
This roll is made of salmon, cream cheese, and cucumber that is rolled in rice and seaweed. Raw salmon rolls are great for beginner sushi lovers because they don’t have a strong fish flavor.
4. Spicy Tuna Roll
Inside this sticky rice and seaweed wrap is a mixture of creamy tuna pieces and spices. You can add cucumber to help cut the heat if you are sensitive to hot food.
5. Tempura Roll
If you’re not a fan of raw fish, then this roll is perfect for you. It has cooked sushi that is drizzled with a spicy tempura sauce.
6. Sake Bomb
No Japanese sushi bar experience would be complete without a Sake bomb. Sake is a traditional Japanese liquor that is a staple of sushi happy hour in Japanese restaurants across the country.
