Do you like sushi? I don’t

Why do people like sushi? Honestly, I don’t even know how people can eat sushi. I mean, it’s basically weird vegetables and raw fish inside mushy rice wrapped in a dead plant. Personally, I dislike sushi, a lot. I used to enjoy it, but now I cannot eat it because the as time went by, the taste of sushi kind of just became gross to me. Surprisingly, I have offended people by saying I dislike sushi. It’s just my personal preference.

 

Sushi comes in many different styles, made various ways, it can be fried, served in really spicy sauce, and attached to an edible dragon face. I’ve had all sorts of sushi in the past, and I can say that I like the fried sushi best. I mean, who doesn’t like anything fried? In Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, or Korean restaurants they have so many different sushi types and flavors. They even look different. Some of them aren’t wrapped in seaweed. Instead, it’s just rice with a slice of raw fish on the top. Sometimes they have sushi that’s filled with caviar or filled with sauce instead of vegetables. It’s overwhelming, really.

 

I could honestly go my entire life without eating sushi ever again. Although, I do like the sauce they put on it. Not the point. The point is, I don’t like sushi. I don’t enjoy eating mushy rice because I am Hispanic, and mushy rice is practically a disgrace to mankind. I don’t like the taste seaweed. It’s got a very earthy and ocean-like flavor. Not my cup of tea. I am a pescatarian, but I can do without the raw sea animal.

 

If you just happen to drag me to a sushi restaurant, I wouldn’t judge you because you like something I don’t like. I would simply just order something else other than sushi.
