Which nigiri piece outside of Japan is your favorite?

When I’m in Japan I eat many nigiri pieces with different kinds of fish. I also like fish that I do not know for expanding my horizon.

When I stay in California I always eat at my Japanese sushi chef instructor sushi restaurant. On his menu there is a certain nigiri piece that is a must and it is “Yellowtail with Myoga”, served with a secret sauce.

Yellowtail is white tuna a fish as very popular fish in the US and Japan. Myoga is a Japanese ginger which has a quite unique flavor and aromas.

It’s a nigiri piece that you can only get served in the United States or in Japan. I choose to get it served when I’m in the United States because the Japanese sushi restaurants in Tokyo have so many other fish and taste to offer.
