In the midst of stuffing my face with sushi, the thought ‘thank god I’m not on a first date’ crossed my mind. Is sushi a good first date idea?
I kid you not, these sushi rolls were an abnormal size. I blame the sushi. They were irregularly large. I had to stretch my mouth so wide I’m sure I added 10+ years onto my pre-existing smile lines. I even started laughing pretty loudly at myself, envisioning how I probably look to everyone around me. Other diners looked at me like, “what is this woman on?”. Purely sushi, I promise!
I was so grateful I wasn’t here to impress anyone like a first date scenario, as if that were the case, the guy would probably have felt sorry for the poor fish I happily devoured.
A day later, I then typed in google: first date food. The results had sushi second on the list. Either I’m the messiest eater ever, or google must’ve had their wires mixed up. I don’t understand how you can eat sushi without making the most hideous facial expression. I always look like I’m trying to fit a tyre in my mouth!
Eating hosomaki, I don’t really have such an issue as they’re tiny bite-sized sushi nibbles. But regular sized sushi, and these huge sushi rolls I happened to come across, virtually impossible to eat with decorum.
Am I eating sushi all wrong? Firstly, for some reason I was eating it straight up, sandwiched between my chopsticks. In a portrait position. That was when I couldn’t stop laughing at myself. Then I tried a landscape position, then I still felt stupid. I felt like a shark, trying to capture the unimaginable! I need help. Give me cutlery any day of the week, to slice these bad boys in half and I’m good to go!
How do you eat sushi? Do you eat raw fish? P.S. I love raw fish, used to hate the thought of sushi! Now it might be my favourite cuisine! Maybe even more than cooked fish. I had raw eel for the first time that day, worst decision ever. Not for me. Have you ever tried sushi? Comment below!
