4 Don’t eat gingerly To cleanse your palate between sushi pieces, nibble on a slice of pickled ginger. Eating it at the same time as an outstanding piece of fish or seafood just masks the flavour.
5 Down it in one If you can’t fit a whole nigiri into your mouth without flashing your molars at fellow diners, the chef’s been too generous. They should be one-bite-sized.
6 Shell out! You generally get what you pay for with sushi. A supermarket or chain café might be cheap, but if you want to know what sushi culture’s really about, you’ll need to save up and go somewhere a little more special.
