Say no to bluefin tuna
Few fish are as endangered, expensive, and delicious as bluefin tuna. “Most high-end sushi chefs will tell you that bluefin tuna toro is the ultimate piece of sushi,” Trevor says. The belly of the bluefin is a fatty flavor explosion, but it's a very non-traditional sushi fish and would've been an insult to order in a Tokyo sushi bar 100 years ago. Save your money and the ocean by skipping the bluefin.
A common complaint about fancy sushi joints is that you'll need to eat a cheeseburger afterwards, which is actually traditional according to Trevor. “That's what they do in Tokyo. They'll drink some beers, have sushi, and if they're still hungry, get ramen before they go home. If for you it's a burger, that's fine.”
