It's not really a strange addiction per se---but I have a thing for sushi. I was introduced to sushi four years ago by a friend of mine at a Park Slope restaurant in Brooklyn. He said give it a try and if you don't like it, then you never have to eat it again. I fell in love! I had a glass of plum wine with a sashimi tray filled with tuna, salmon, and california sushi rolls. Delish! Of course at that time I drowned my sashimi and rolls in soy sauce and I always ask for way more wasabi than I actually need.
I've toned it down on the soy sauce and just enjoy eating my raw seafood for its natural flavor. Some of my friends think I'm weird for loving sushi so much, but why is that weird? I don't know---I guess sushi isn't everybody's thing.
If it were up to me, I would eat sushi all day everyday. I would have a few rolls and miso soup for breakfast, a sashimi tray for lunch, and fried rolls with some beef teriyaki for dinner. I'm getting hungry just writing this. I miss going to "Go Sushi" in NYC. It was like the fast food stop for sushi. I know the term "fast food" and "sushi" should never go into the same sentence, but trust me---it was always fresh and always soooo yummy.
I'm not a huge fan of going to Harris Teeter and getting my sushi there---its not the same. I prefer going restaurant style. Oh sushi---how I adore thee!
