Sushiology 101

It took me years and years to master the Japanese art of eating sushi. While I was learning, I felt a bit like David Carridine in Kung Fu, except I didn’t have Keye Luke as my mentor, I didn’t shave my head or wear a polypropylene skull cap, and I didn’t play the miscast Occidental star of a 1970s series about the mysteries of ancient Oriental fighting techniques.

Fortunately, you need not endure such rigorous training (or strained blogger references to 1970s TV shows) yourself: just follow this easy to understand guide, and in about eight minutes, the mysteries of the sushi bar will be revealed to you, too.

(Truth be told, if you’re already a sushi junky, you may enjoy this a lot more.)
