I'm eating early (too early!) before I head out for a 200 K.

We had sushi for dinner last night. I was moving it aside to get to my yogurt and I thought there was no way, absolutely no way, I could do sushi for breakfast.

I don't know how you do it Nanci. :p

The advantage of being a midwife is that time ceases to have much meaning, so "breakfast" is what you make of it! :p

Have a great ride. We await the report!

I could do sushi for breakfast. Why must we designate certain foods for certain times of the day, hmmmm? Cereal for dinner, sushi for breakfast, waffles and fried chicken at any time of the day or night... It all sounds good to me ;)

I'd just make sure the sushi was fresh and I'd add another carb in addition to the rice, if I were heading out to ride afterward.

Working 12 hour nights in the ER I never had trouble coming home and eating left over sushi...yummm. Maybe that's why I have to take that little purple pill now...

Evil pork day will haunt me forever! It came up at dinner.

Certain sushis would be just fine.

Tamago and Ebi would be pretty good... Grugh, I miss sushi.

Only if I can find a place to crash. ...then an entire evening of green tea, as many exotic sushis as I can afford and mochi. :D

I have a fold out couch, and a great sushi place is just down the road. There are several within about 5 miles of my apt. We could have every meal at a different sushi place.

(there is some darn good sushi and mochi and daifuku at the grocery store, too.)

Well Geez! How can I refuse? Once I get a job with normal hours, I'll have to visit sometime an' bring Miz Cakes. Sounds like a good time :D

hey excuse this thread hijacking question but.... do any of you feel overheated after eating too much sushi? apart from the sudden onset of extreme thirst due to aginomoto...

Soon it will be cool enough to take snack packs of sushi on the bike again! Winter!! Or is that wishful thinking with a high of 93F and a low of 65F...

Tamago? Did someone say tamago?? Throw in some wasabi and I think I might start drooling......

But somehow I just can't imagine eating Tuna Carpatchio (however its spelled) for breakfast......

Wow, I thought I loved sushi...but you guys are crazy! :p Sushi for breakfast? Sushi for a mid ride snack??? I eat a lot of sushi, but I don't know if I could handle all that!!

Sushi and coffee, the breakfast of champions...who knew?

I forgot how much I loved sashimi... Especially sake, cut so thinly you can see the wasabi through it ...
Amaebi with a little (more) shoyu, unagi, maguro, temaki and toro... mmmm Has anyone tried Uni? I was told it was creamy, but it sounds... weird.

I did have sea urchin in Japan, and I promise it wasn't weird--it was really good. I also had squid sashimi and THAT was disgustingly slimy. Had geoduck sashimi---oops, edit, meant to say that was delicious.

I kind of ODed on sushi and sashimi, actually, after five weeks in Japan in '86. But I still love glazed sweet potato slices. And red bean everything. And okonomiyaki.

:D EEE! XD If we're discussing sushi/sashimi, can we discuss sake? I'm sure it's not *technically* for breakfast, but who's REALLY counting? If you can find (I think it's by Kamibara?) "Bride of the Fox" sake, it's really, very good. light, delicate, but flavorful. Yes, yes, hadda buy it. I work 1mi south of the Momokawa sakery, too. =) (yes, I know it's not *really* called a sakery, but I forget what its' called, really, and I don't care right now.)

Used to eat VERY fresh sea urchin when I scuba dived. MMmmm good. Scallops, too.

Love red bean everything, also.

Got SKnot hooked on red bean mochi (daifuku).

It's funny I did have sushi for breakfast. There is a great Japanese market nearby (Mitsuwa) and I ran over there a couple of days ago and loaded up on sushi and kinpira (seasoned burdock root).

There are all kinds of sushi. Personally not certain if I could do something like a tuna roll for breakfast but my sushi tastes tend to run to the classics like - Inari and Futomaki. Futomaki, a very "old fashioned before sushi bars" sushi is made with nari, sushi rice, egg, burdock, spinach, ginger and either eel or crab. Not much different then a gourmet omelet. Inari is just fried and seasoned tofu stuffed with sushi rice. YUM!!!! :D

I just ate kung pao chicken for breakfast, so why not sushi? I also used to stop at the market and get curry humbow for breakfast. Yum!

Pam! Hi there. I am thrilled to hear you've gotten well enough to be eating sushi for breakfast!

My sister used to eat cold Chinese food for breakfast and also occasionally cold pizza. Couldn't do it, myself...but any adventure is good, even the odd breakfast one.

mmmm sake - definitely not for breakfast. My favorites are Onikuroshi (Wakatake brand- there are several sake breweries that make a "Demon Killer"), Umenishki and Kamotsuru.
The best sake I think I've ever had was from a bottle that I bought for a friend when he opened his new restaurant. Kurahibiki - very very smooth and really fragrent, but this was top shelf stuff, too expensive for every day drinking.

I'm going to start brewing my next batch pretty soon here. You can only do it during the cooler months and its a fairly intense process requiring some ingredients that are hard to acquire, so I've generally only done one batch a fall/winter. This will be my third I think.

As far as sushi goes - all you Seattle gals (shamless plug for my favorite restaurants follows)- Hana on Broadway has the best, freshest fish I've ever had. Atmosphere - very friendly, sit at the bar and talk to everyone, including the owners, not fancy, but very good food at very good prices. The best thing to do is just let them feed you, but if you want suggestions try the Sea Bass with Ponzu, Smelt (in the summer), Ankimo (in the fall/winter)
If you want something a little fancier our friend who used to work at Hana recently struck out on his own and opened a restaurant just north of the U Village called Shun. Also very very good food, Kotaro is more creative and willing to try new things/ingredients and only a little more expensive.

Salivating just sitting here. I LOVE sushi. I lived in Japan for 2 years, and am fortunate to have had some very good sushi *adventures* there.
Blowfish (highly poisonous and can only be cut by specialists, apparently), the taste of which is somehow enhanced by the inherent danger of eating it.
Also, ebi odori, literally "dancing shrimp", which pretty much involved being given a covered basket of shrimp which had been removed just recently from the water. Move the basket and they would revive a bit (dance). Rip off the head and tail, remove the shell and there you have it - the freshest ebi possible. (OK, I admit I couldn't quite bring myself to be the one ripping off the head and tail while it squirmed, but it sure was tasty...:o )

But anyway, one of my favorite cycling snacks while on the road in Japan was onigiri. Basically a tasty bit (usually salmon or umeboshi (pickled plum) or something else) inside of a ball of sushi rice, wrapped in seaweed. It traveled really well, had some simple carbs and some sodium, and was readily available at convenience stores all over Japan.

I miss living in Japan, mostly for the food!

Hmmm...Reminds me of the time I was at sea up in the Gulf Maine on a research trawler that brought in some northern shrimp on a tow. One of the guys was doing that same thing (after we took our sample, of course!). I tried one, and it was very good.

I draw the line at Uni, however. Yuck! The texture. The taste. Blech! :eek:

Yeah, I'd have to agree. Uni IS gross.
