1. Sushi

Slices of fresh seafood are more properly referred to as sashimi (see below). The preparation techniques and specific items used in quality dishes depend highly on the preferences and abilities of the itamae, or sushi chef. Order based on your tastes, or if you’re feeling adventurous tell the chef, “Omakase,” and you’ll get a choice plate personally selected by the itamae.

2. SashimiIn Japanese cuisine, sashimi is considered a master of artistry and flavor.

Thin pieces of raw fish or meat offer flavorful tidbits for any gourmand. In Japanese cuisine, sashimi is traditionally served with a vegetable garnish and complemented with wasabi, ginger, or another condiment and is often considered the masterpiece of traditional Japanese cuisine. Salmon, shrimp, and tuna are popularly used for this culinary pleasure, but you may also encounter eel, octopus, and other exotic sea creatures.

3. Nigiri

Dining at Shogun Japanese SteakhouseNigirizushi (nigiri) consists of rice compressed into an oval-shaped ball, topped with a piece of seafood. Gunkanmaki is a type of nigiri in which the contents are held together with a sheet of the seaweed nori. Connoisseurs know to avoid mixing nigiri and sake because each is made of rice and doing so interferes with other flavors. Sip a refreshing green tea instead.
