Staci Tries Sushi

June 4, 2009

Those of you who have known me a long time know that I am not a big seafood fan.  In fact, many of you may have heard me say at one point in the past that “I don’t eat seafood.”  While I have become more adventurous in eating fish and fried shrimp, it’s still not quite on my favorite things to eat yet.  And I definately, until Tuesday night, did not eat sushi.

My best friend Jalah started trying to get me to go get sushi with her a few months ago.  She had recently become a sushi convert and was convinced that she could order some rolls for me to try that I would eventually enjoy.  I’ll admit, I was pretty doubtful that she would be able to succeed in her quest.  After all, I had tried sushi before, gave it the good ol college try and did not enjoy it.  But I love Jalah, and I love hanging out with Jalah, so I decided to let her try.  We agreed to meet at Pirhana Killer Sushi in North Arlington this past Tuesday night for dinner and I promised to try some sushi before ordering anything “safe”. 

During my drive to Arlington, I was so convinced that I wasn’t going to like the rolls served to me that I was getting excited about eating the crispy chicken and wonton vegetables I had eaten at the Fort Worth location of the same restaurant the year before.  Knowing that my friends and family would not believe that I ate, and liked, sushi, I thought I needed to get photographic proof of the experience.  Jalah was more than happy to oblige.

Are those orange things fish eggs?

Hey that's pretty good

So I’ve completed the first hurdle in the road to becoming a sushi lover.  True both rolls we ate were shrimp tempura and not true raw fish suhsi, but I think it still counts!  Who wants to go eat sushi with me next?

    I am VERY impressed…I guess that means now I have to try it…I’m scared! I have been a seafood convert, still with particular likes and dislikes, for several years. But, sushi, or any other raw fish, has never crossed my lips:).

    What can I say, I’m growing! 😉 If you go for the ones with fried shrimp tempura then you don’t have to worry about the raw part. Unless you don’t like shrimp….
