I love sushi in all shapes and form. Especially sashimi, that is just the fish itself in raw form without the vinegared rice combo. It is everything about having a fresh piece of fine fish/sea produce carefully carved by a Master Sushi Chef presented in front of you with style. Add some Himalayan salt followed by a zip of chilled sake somehow puts me in a gastronomical moment.
I think the enjoyment of raw seafood is not something that you are born with. It is indeed a learned way. I was introduced to sushi/sashimi by some Japanese friends while I was still a teenager. They were family friends visiting and I was just old enough to have raw fish, I guess. The sight of it was a bit daunting, but I tried it anyways.
Tried a bunch of dishes spanning from fried tofu in broth, Wagyu beef, to their famous ramen and of course the sashimi. I will visit Tei-An again, have a nice cocktail while taking in the lovely atmosphere on their exclusive rooftop sanctuary.
