Maki


A few days back I went to Maki with 'M'. It was first time for me to visit a Japanese restaurant. Let me tell you that I am more of a burger person. I never try new dishes in food and usually stick to what I always order. I have never had prawns or shrimps or sushi. But that day it tasted good till I later knew what I was eating.

What happened is we entered the restaurant and I didn't hold the menu or read anything inside it. 'M' knew what was to be ordered and the order was placed. The rules were I would not be placing the order or looking in the menu and when the order arrives I should eat without asking questions. As I have never eaten any of these dishes before I didn't know how they look or taste like. I was quiet nervous to be honest as I didn't know what I will be chewing once the order arrives. It was odd to eat even when the order arrived and it was all good and tasty till I knew at the end what I was eating!!! I kinda fell sick knowing that I was eating prawns and few other Maki dishes and I don't recall their names now.

Overall wasn't as bad as I thought. How can it be bad when you have a great company ;) I would definitely give it another try some time again.

lol Not everyone can stand having "Nihon Ryoori" - Japanese Cuisine (showing off my few jap words :P), some of my friends wont succumb to the experience of trying it out so I give you credit for taking the plunge.

I personally wouldn't mind living on that kind of food :D

Glad you enjoyed it.

I love sushi but only certain types of sushi. I prefer the one with the octopus, I have no idea whatizname bs it taste really nice with wasabi.

I hate it when people are discriminant against some types of food. Please forget any stereotypes you have when you eat, and decide later whether you like it or not. Believe me you might be missing a lot.

desertpalms said...

bil 3afyaaa = )

i havent tried proper japanese food either..theres just somthing about eating RAW food thats putting me off...hmm i shud give it a go!

intlxpatr said...

LOL @ you liked it fine until you knew what you had eaten!

I had a Japanese friend visiting me; she fell in love with the fish market in Mubarakiyya. We had two other women with us who were almost throwing up at the smell, but my friend took about 75 photos of all the different kinds of seafood available.

I stick the the cooked stuff, now. I used to eat all the raw stuff, but it is risky. Glad you trusted "M" to introduce you to a wonderful new world.

Which means you should always give it a try.. taste and then decide whether you like it or not.
