For sushi lovers, it is hard not to obsess over fresh fish surrounded by ocean on all sides of the Big Island of Hawaii. I have an intense weakness for sushi; attempts to refrain from indulging are futile.
Some sushi lovers are purists, admiring the years of training to perfect simplicity until it’s sublime. Others declare devotion to the explosive creativity that results in perfectly engineered rolls intertwining flavors and textures.
I am a sushi lush. An equal opportunity sushi eater. Over the years I’ve developed an appreciation for all different styles…as long as a key ingredient is raw seafood. Otherwise it is always about taste, texture, balance, and complexity.
So far, I have yet to find stellar Chirashi or Sashimi. Killer rolls, I have discovered.
More to come. For now, I’ve ventured into three sushi restaurants in two days and leave you with these photos I took with my phone.
The chase continues. Any help and suggestions from you, dear reader, is more than welcome!
