FIRST SUSHI EXPERIENCE in Japan With John Daub From "Only in Japan"

  • Published on Jan 1, 2019
  • I don't eat sushi, but I thought I'd give it a try since I've been to Japan a few times already. I met up with my friend John from "Only in Japan" so he can show me what sushi is all about. I have to say I liked the tuna a lot! With his help, I had a great and fun experience at Sushizanmai.

    I’ve been around a good deal of Japanese, including my husband lol, and they’re the ones that taught me to put the wasabi in the soy sauce. I didn’t do it for the same reason, I thought it was a faux pas too 😂 I use a lot more than they do though lol wasabi>shoyu for lyyyyfe, i always dip a nice paste of 80% wasabi to soy sauce 😂😂

    So happy you finally got over your sushi fear, idk how John finally talked you into it 😂

    you really gotta admire how the japanese really take time to appreciate the natural flavors of things. rather than adding a bunch of stuff to combine different flavors.

    LOVED this collab Mike, and so happy that you gave sushi a try! John was such a great help and you guys should collab more often. Sushi is one of my most favorite foods in the entire world. If you loved the fattiness of the tuna, you NEEEEEDDDDD to try salmon nigiri!!! Salmon is fatty and melt-in-your-mouth like tuna, but in my opinion has a better taste. I think you'll love it!
