10 Reasons Why Basic Bitches Love: Sushi

Face it, everybody loves sushi. Whether or not you actually eat the raw fish, you’ve had sushi. You’ve had the basic California Rolls, some Miso Soup and even the Edamame. But seriously though girl, if you haven’t had the Butter Fish sashimi, or even tried the raw Ika, then you’re missing out on the opportunity. But sadly most people who are eating sushi aren’t truly eating sushi. If you get what we mean. Why are you?

10 Reasons Why Basic Bitches Love: Sushi

1. We want to impress our friends and eat “raw fish”.

Everybody starts from somewhere. Most of us were grossed out by the fact the protein is eaten raw. In an era where mad cow disease and some crazy chicken nonsense happens at least once a year, who can really trust where the fish has been? But if you’ve got the guts to do it, you earned the title of the cool kid.

2. It’s an “experience”.

Everybody eats pizza and subs, but eating sushi is like being transported to Japan – without actually collecting any aeroplan points. To be truly cultured, you have to eat sushi.

3. It’s “healthy”.

Sure the meat isn’t cooked, so the protein isn’t destroyed and lost in the process of preparation. And there’s also avocado, cucumber, ginger and a variety of other vegetables involved. It must be clean right? But what about that mayo on the deep-fried scallops? Or your shrimp tempura? Or that wad of rice that you’re shoving into your mouth with each piece of the maki roll consumed. It’s all in your head.

4. It’ll fill you up.

Sure, you’re able to get full off of a half decent cost, but you’re basically filling yourself up with rice. And the cooks know that (or should we call them sushi masters). They just increase the portion of rice in each serving until you’re full enough to stop ordering the sashimi. Bingo, win-win for both parties.

5. So that you can show off your chopstick skills.

Outside of asian cuisine, chopsticks are almost never used. But it’s a great skill to have, and one of the few rare moments to show off that you have mastered another finger trick is through eating sushi. Skip the pho, sushi is the way to go.

6. It’s popular and Instagrammable.

Everybody loves sushi, which means that you also have to love sushi. And like macarons, everybody has to Instagram a picture of sushi. It’s almost like an unsaid rule on Instagram, that if you haven’t posted a picture of both macarons and sushi, you’re not a serious food Instagrammer.

7. Eat the rainbow.

You know that saying that says that you have to eat every color of the rainbow to be healthy? Sushi comes in a myriad of colors. So by eating the sushi rainbow, technically you’re on the color rainbow right…?

8. Lack of commitment.

Not quite sure if you’ll like that piece? Just order a roll so you’ll only have to finish 6 pieces. Or even better, sashimi that’s per order and you’re not quite sure if you’ll enjoy the Snapper or not. With sushi, there’s no guaranteed commitment to what yuo order. And better yet, you can try many different things!

9. Better than tapas.

Usually if you’re eating sushi with friends and it’s at an all-you-can-eat joint (AYCE), you’ll most likely all be sharing what to eat, which means someone will take a couple of pieces, including you. And when it comes to sharing plates like tapas, as long as the price is comparable, it’s going to be better than tapas.

10. Bragging rights.

Besides just eating raw salmon you can also eat raw squid. But some sushi connoiseurs aren’t even brave enough to try the raw squid, so if you’re able to eat different things off of the menu, then you’ll have bragging rights for the next week.

What’s your favorite thing to order at sushi?
