Quiz: Can You Order Sushi in Japanese?

How Solid Is Your Sushi Vocabulary?

After a less-than-light diet of gingersnap palmiers, baked brie, and eggnog martinis, I've been all about cutting back on fat and sugar. My dinnertime delight of the moment? Sushi. In fact, I've been enjoying the health food so much that I've come to memorize all the Japanese terms that correspond with the rolls or sushi pieces on the menu. That got me to thinking: it's high time I quizzed you on your sushi vocab! I'm going to name a Japanese term, and I want you to tell me what it translates to in English. Ready to take the quiz? Let's get started!

I guess it depends on where you live & more resturants are using "local" ingredients rather than imports. Close to where I live there's a fantastic place that serves all-you-can-eat sushi - pay one price & order everything you want (as much as you can eat - the rare times I can go there I won't eat, thus I get my sushi!) & it isn't just sushi. They have the best BBQ baby-back ribs, spicy chicken wings & beef strips around! To many other foods to mention. - The 2 questions I got wrong... are right here. I'll explain: Here "Sake" has Ahi tuna & "Maguro" contains Fatty tuna & not blue-fin (unless you ask for it. I'm going again for my B'day in 6 months; I can't wait!
