I don't eat fish so when i go for japanese food I mostly eat vegetable maki. My favorite is oshinko maki.

A friend of mine loves the eel (unagi... i think). He calls them "soft meat pillows" :)

I can't answer this in English - it just doesn't sound the same... So folks, this is not a secret message or an inside joke; just my preferences: 中トロ、雲丹、イクラ、甘エビ、白魚、きす、穴子、こはだ、さば、烏賊(とてもいい時だけ)、たこ、そして最後は卵。ガリは沢山、わさびは程ほどに。お酒は人肌で湯飲みでお願いします。お勘定は主人が。(And it goes on Ben's tab.)

最初は、アナゴ、卵はおつまみで。
一本つけて。

中トロ、ぶり、タイ、サバ、またはシマアジ(青背の魚は、足が速いから本当に新鮮なときだけ)、子柱、甘エビ、イワシ。

jing: I think it is hard for people from other countries to recognise each kind sushi because there are many kinds of sushi.
susan: Oh, very nice! I was wondering, would people in US like raw fish?
keropok man: Now Salmon is in season! I like salmon too.
walter: Hamachi sashimi is also yummy!
mike c: Very healthy! I like avocade with soy sauce. Its taste is like tuna fish.
meg nakagawa: Your comments make me want to eat sushi!! Japanese sake and sushi go well together. 新鮮な烏賊はとてもおいしいですよね。新潟は新鮮な烏賊が多く、新潟に行ったときは、毎日烏賊のさしみをたべていました。
ben: なんか、ben-sanは、カウンターが似合いそうですね。ben-sanの組み合わせは、まさに黄金の組み合わせですね。

Sushi is extremely popular in NYC. It seems like there is a sushi restaurant on every corner. The best and most expensive ones are Morimoto (gigantic restaurant), Masa (in the Times Warner Building) and Nobu (the first high end Japanese restaurant in NYC).

Lately, a lot of yakitori restaurants have been opening up here too.

keropok man: I like salmon too. Yummy!!
ming: Thank you for very infomative description!! I have enjoyed Japanese sake, nihon-shu, at Saka-Gura in NYC four years ago. Is Japanese sake popular in NYC? And I have also enjoyed soba in another restaurant there. I was very surprised that it was delicious! Oh, yakitori is becoming popular? Japanese there don't feel homesick.

Japanese saki is becoming popular, especially the premium warm saki served at expensive restaurants. And a lot of bars are serving saki-tini, martini made with saki. :-)

East Village has become Little Tokyo because of the large number of sushi and yakitori restaurants, Japanese grocery stores, and karaoke bars.

Oh, thank you for your great information!! Saki-tini sounds tasty!! I will try it!

Macky, Ben's dad is from Sado, as a matter of fact!

Really? I've been at Shukunegi(宿根木), a small town in Sado. Many old and interesting houses made by ship carpenters are there. Fish is old nice there! By the way, I met ex-girl friend at Sado when I was a college student. She and I went there for a trip. I have a good memory in Sado.
