Kosher Sushi 101

When you step into a burger joint – it is a complete chaos. There are no rules. No “right” way to eat the fries. You can do it with a fork, with your hands, or directly apply your face to the platter. You can dip it in ketchup, mayo or peanut butter. Whatever works for you. But in a kosher sushi restaurant, there a few ground rules that a real sushi lover should follow. You will not get kicked out of a sushi place just because you ask for a fork, but did you know that it is perfectly okay and pretty common to eat sushi with your hands? Just like hummus, sushi is basically a finger food. So next time you find yourself struggling with chopsticks, just put them aside and work with your hands, it’s an experience you will not forget. But don’t go caveman on the sushi. Be considerate when a shared plate is on the table and use a tool to get your food. And don’t use the side that you eat with. Use the other side of the chopsticks when reaching for another man’s sushi. It’s just basic hygiene. By the way, if you do decide to use your chopsticks, never, but never rob them together. It is very rude and offensive in Japanese culture.

Stay tuned next week as we continue to go through sushi etiquette. And remember, from Brooklyn Sushi to New York Sushi and even Kosher Sushi, Sushi K Bar knows it all. Get your sushi fix right here and don't forget to visit us online at The freshest Quality Sushi in Town.
