Although you can get beef sushi here (heck, you can even get spam nigiri!) it wasn’t until I was merrily chomping away on the middle piece in the right hand row when I realised that serving beef in what is otherwise a very traditional set would be completely out of place. I’ve seen whale in the supermarket before, and it looked just like steak. Like this.
Sushi dindins FAIL.
For the record, it had no discernable unpleasent taste or texture, especially since I dipped in uber-wasabi-enhanced soya sauce, being the heathen gaijin that I am.
