So, how do you quit your roll addiction?
The first step towards a better sushi experience is to avoid specialty rolls altogether. These have goofy names and long lists of ingredients. Instead, start weaning yourself off with simple one- or two-ingredient rolls, or cone-shaped hand rolls. These still offer the same satisfaction and the familiar flavors of seaweed, but allow the chef to better showcase the fish.
Once you've cleared years' worth of mayonnaise out of your arteries, try letting your server or chef guide you through ordering nigiri. The Japanese names of the fish can be intimidating even to experts, so don't try to fake your way through it. Servers at sushi restaurants are happy to help customers make informed decisions about the menu. It's their job.
