How cool is sushi!

Postby Mawkish1983 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 9:12 am

I just tried sushi for the first time this morning, for breakfast.

Smells a bit off but it tastes great!

Greetings,

Never had it for breakfast, but I'm definitely a fan of sushi (and wasabi)

Metta,
Retro. :)

Wasabi hey? :D that's one for future trials (maybe not for breakfast though).

I wonder, what are the normal eating habit of laypeople in eastern countries? I've often wondered what people eat for breakfast and lunch. In the UK we get a very convoluted version of 'exotic' foods, usually consisting of some poor-quality meat served in a stogy sauce with rice or noodles.... not exactly authentic. As such, I've often wondered, "Do Indians eat cornflakes for breakfast?" or "Do the Japanese like porridge?".

I'm not a great traveler so I sincerely apologise for my ignorance in these matters, but what DO eastern people eat for breakfast?

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

At IHOP, Bob Evan's, and Burger King, you can get breakfast, lunch, and dinner any time. Although there are traditional meal differences, I think practically many Americans just eat whatever happens to be in the fridge... Eating beef stew for breakfast... and cooking bacon at midnight...

Sushi is indeed cool. Yum! :tongue:

Wow, I never knew that other cultures eat the same foods all day. I am so used to a different menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. How interesting!

Greetings,

This isn't directed to anyone in particular, just a topic for thought...I think (most) everyone knows that we're just about out of this life form, due to our own inability to allow it to sustain itself...and yet here we are talking about how much we dig eating it...while also knowing your children (maybe grandkids) will not be able to ever even taste it...who's really walking the walk?...
