Don't knock it til you try it!

I used to be totally against Sushi.  I mean raw fish, come on! I would always say that I hated it (although I had never even tried it.)  When Jon and I moved to Fort Worth we found a restaurant there called Piranha Killer Sushi, this is where I found out that I loved sushi!  I finally tried it and now I'm hooked.  I am still not very daring with what I eat, but I do eat the raw stuff.  Jon on the other hand loves the straight up super raw fish on a hunk of rice stuff.  I mainly eat rolls that have a combo of things, including raw fish.  This past week we went to Sushi Gen here in town with the in-laws.  It is one of our favorite places to get sushi around here.  I am picky about where I will order sushi from.  The place must be clean, not hot or musty, and most importantly, can not smell like fish.  I know you probably think I am crazy?!  Sushi Gen meets all of the criteria.  When we went this past week we decided to try the Monkey Brains appetizer that we have heard so many people talk about.  It consists of avocado, crab, and spicy tuna.  It was delish!  For dinner I had the spicy tuna roll (one thing I always order) and a combo roll called the Red Dragon Roll that was made of shrimp tempura, avocado, cucumber, spicy tuna and crab on top.  I was very impressed.  Jon ordered the Sexy Trio roll, which was an ordinary spicy tuna roll but was topped with salmon, yellow tail, and eel, and mackerel and eel sushi.  I did try a piece of his Sexy Trio roll and it was pretty good.  The in-laws are not fans of raw fish so they had shrimp and chicken fried rice and were very pleased with their dinner.

I am very glad that I decided to give the raw fish a try.  Although I'm not very adventurous in my sushi intake, I still really enjoy what I do eat!

Looks delish! We love sushi too! And I am exactly the same with the criteria with the restaurant, b/c getting sick is no fun!
