When You Buy Sushi in a Restaurant, You are Also Paying for the Experience

When you go to a Japanese restaurant you not only buy sushi, you are paying for the complete experience of eating Japanese food. This is one reason that many believe that eating sushi is really starting to become increasingly popular. However before you head out to your local restaurant you should know that there are certain dos and don’ts when it comes to eating sushi. Let’s go over some of the most excepted etiquette for sushi dinning.

When you first enter the restaurant you should consider where you would like to be seated. If you want to get the full interactive experience you should ask the host or hostess to seat you at the bar. This will give you the best view of the meals being prepared and you are also able to interact with the itamae which is the sushi chef. Even when sitting at the bar there are certain things that are found expectable when interacting with the itamae.

When you are ordering you only place your sushi order with the chef and all other items such as your drinks should be placed with the waiter or waitress. When you are contemplating what you would like to eat you can as the chef what he would recommend and they will usually give you great suggestions. It is considered very bad taste to ask the itamae if something is fresh. This is considered to be very insulting and if you have any doubts about the freshness of food being served you should consider eating elsewhere.

If you will frequent the restaurant often you should definitely try and establish a rapport with the itamae as they will take good care of their best cliental. The best way to establish a good relationship with the chef is to engage him or her in conversation respectfully. This means when they look extremely busy try and limit how much you distract them but when they seem to have a bit of a lull go ahead and chat it up with them. Another good way to establish a rapport with the itamae is to offer them a beer or sake, this is very acceptable.

Once you have finished your meal you should tip the chef and the waitress separately. Usually the chef will have tip jar and your tip should be place there because they work with food and will not touch money. The waiter or waitress’s tip should be left normally, placed on the table. Remember that you choose to buy sushi in a restaurant to enjoy the entire experience so here are a few quick tips so you don’t look to amateurish when eating your sushi.

First it is ok to eat sushi with your hands. If you are not offered a spoon with your soup do not ask for one, just lift the bowl to your mouth and use the chop sticks to guide the food to your mouth, and do not rub your chop sticks together. When you choose to buy sushi in a restaurant be prepared for a great culinary experience.
