Look for A Place That Offers Varieties
Navigating through the menu is important. You need to know all your available option before you’re ready for a sushi experience. Check out the entire menu and read descriptions. Sometimes taking chef’s opinion can sort this out for you. Don’t forget to mention that you are a newbie to get more relevant and comfortable recommendations.
Start with The Safest Options
When it comes to sushi, we call ‘cooked dishes’ the safest options to start with. The meat might still be raw, but the other cooked ingredients minimize the impact of the flavors. Making a combo with cooked ingredients of your choice can make a lot of difference to how you approach sushi.
Identify Familiar Ingredients
Trying out all new and strange flavors with raw meat at once can be pretty overwhelming to begin with. Since you are new to this experience, start with a combo that includes familiar ingredients such as vegetables, mayonnaise, sauces, and rice.
Enrich the Flavors with Sauces and Condiments
If you are not too sure about the taste, sauces and condiments can save the day. This way you have more control over the flavors. And while you do have this option, we suggest that you don’t go overboard with sauces and condiments to be able to have a real sushi experience. You can’t like it unless you know what it actually tastes like.
Start with Sushi Rolls
Unless you are already familiar with the flavors, we recommend trying out rolls as their structure is more approachable for newbies and they also often contain some cooked ingredients. The basic sushi roll structure has rice, and everything’s wrapped in seaweed.
