I loves sushi. Its aesthetic qualities draw me in and the freshness and flavor keep me hankering for more. How food looks is a very big deal for me because I’m a very picky eater and one of the factors I consider is how the food looks. This is rarely a problem for Japanese food for often times, they are unmatched in color and composition with both simplicity and flamboyance in one serving.

Sushi, of course, is one of the most popular of Japanese foods and they are not exempt from the excellence in appearance and taste that Japanese food boasts.

My favorite sushi however, is not one of rich color contrasts and amazing shapes. It is the tamago sushi. It is toned down and simple but there is nothing about it that I do not like.

As much as I love sushi, at times there are elements within it that I do not like. For instance, I do not care much for wasabi and some sushi rolls hold a bit too much of it. This for me, almost ruins it. I also do not like mayonnaise which is sometimes dropped on or spread within certain kinds of sushi. Even if it is Japanese mayonnaise, I really don’t like the way it tastes and feels in my mouth so I try to stay away from that.

With tamago sushi however, there is no such thing. It is simply a wonderful integration of sweetened egg, rice, and nori. Add in a bit of soy sauce and it has the most fantastic flavor. Ironically enough, I do like egg much either yet tamago sushi is something I constantly crave for. Such Japanese Food mysteries never cease.
