What is the first thing Japanese people notice when they eat sushi?


When a Japanese person orders sushi, they use other criteria to evaluate the food.

When it comes to sushi the Japanese’s favorite food is nigiri. The selection of fish in Japan is very large and it is very normal that you find 15 to 20 different fish on the menu.

What a Japanese person primarily looks for when eating sushi is whether the rice is cooked to perfection. The consistency of sushi rice should be soft but also firm. It should not be like porridge, but the rice grain should not be hard or raw inside either. It is a balance that is difficult to get.

If the rice is not cooked to perfection, I will affect the dining experience.  This is because quite a few ingredients are used for sushi. You use the best fish in the world, but if the rice is cooked to perfection the dining experience will fall apart.

In the Sushi course for beginners, you learn step-by-step how to cook sushi in a quality that is suitable for use in sushi.

Is there a difference in the quality of sushi in Japan?

Yes, there is a difference in quality in Japan. As in Denmark, the quality of sushi differs but the range is much bigger.

At the lowest level, you will find Running sushi, which most people outside of Japan have heard of. In Japan, most of the students eat at running sushi.

In Japan, there are several levels of gastronomy. Most people in Denmark consider three star Michelin restaurants as the highest. In Japan, the level is also very high but there is a level above Michelin restaurants. Yes, you heard right!

This is because there are restaurants that the Michelin Guide has not discovered.

There are also restaurants that are so popular that they are removed from the guide.
There are restaurants that are so in demand that they are unable to accommodate the many guests.

There are also chefs who are so high in age that they have chosen to slow down and only cook for their regular’s guests. The type of restaurants tourists rarely hear about.

What type of soy sauce uses exclusive Japanese sushi restaurants in Tokyo?

Exclusive Japanese sushi restaurants differ from other restaurants. In Europe, most people are using the Michelin guide as a yardstick that is not the case in Japan.

In Japan there are many exceptional restaurants that never find their way to the Michelin guide. In these types of restaurants the sushi chefs use a unique soy sauce for the sushi pieces that cannot be bought in shops.

It is a soy sauce that the sushi chefs have often developed themselves but it does happens that it is a recipe that has been passed on for generations. Unfortunately, the soy sauce is secret.

What is your best tip if I am going to Japan?

I would say be sure to have plenty of cash.
Although there are more and more Japanese businesses that accept Visa card and Master Card there are still many shops and restaurants that prefer cash.

It is often shops where you can buy food, beverages or personal items that do not cost very much. Here I think of a spring water, cup of coffee, a little lunch or objects that cost less than $ 20.

You can expect that shops or restaurants outside tourist areas do not accept Visa card and it is regardless of the size of the amount.
