Culinary Delight: A foodie’s guide to eating Sushi & Sashimi

I have been evading Sushi and Sashimi for the longest time mainly because my tongue shudders at the thought of raw fish. But since we promised ourselves to give everything that is Halal out there a try, I decided that the new month was the perfect start. I had no previous experience with Sushi- how to order, what to expect or how to eat it? A few key word searches and I found the I love Coffee guide with which I felt well armored to tackle the Sushi experience. What was left was where to get it in Arusha, tripadvisor reviews lead me to Sazan Japanese Restaurant.

A quick review of Sazan:

A small run down restaurant with appreciable customer care. Although the staff are friendly they did not demonstrate any knowledge of the cuisine they were serving which was a big miss because apart from mentioning the best sellers they couldn’t do much on recommendation. I felt the lack of knowledge killed the whole culinary experience. It’s probably a place that would be most fitting for someone who has the Sushi and Sashimi know how.

I have never had Japanese before so I can’t comment on authenticity but I’m pretty sure the rice was not Japanese in fact it tasted like the local rice we cook at home. Our plate had rice balls wrapped in prawns, smoked salmon and a fish I have no idea which. I enjoyed the smoked Salmon however even though I almost cleared the table, I kind of wanted my money back because I wasn’t really satisfied with the whole experience.
