How long do I need to start emails with “Happy New Year” or “Compliments of the season”? I can’t keep track of who I’ve wish and who I haven’t and I’m getting horribly confused about New Year’s etiquette. So, um, happy 2015 and I’m sure you all missed us as much as we missed you.

With Geoff away, I get to take over Tasty Tuesday. In general, Geoff and I agree about food; both of us seem to have a more refined palate than the rest of the Lazygamer rabble. He hasn’t written about one of my favorite foods, though, Sushi.

Coming into the mainstream recently, it’s far easier to find Sushi just about anywhere you go. However, just because your local supermarket throws some salmon and rice together with some seaweed doesn’t mean that you should call it Sushi. The food deserves respect and I am something of a Sushi snob. It’s not just about fresh ingredients – it’s important that presentation is equally delicious.

I’ve recently discovered Tsuyu, a fantastic and authentic Japanese restaurant in Fourways that also does cooked Japanese food (something that deserves a whole other Tasty Tuesday). With a range of items on the Sushi menu, including my favorites eel and tempura, their Sushi is served incredibly fresh, well prepared and beautiful.

Nothing can compare to the Umami taste for me. Starting with a clear palate thanks to the pickled ginger, I love dipping that perfect mouthful into wasabi infused soy sauce, letting each of the unique flavors combine beautifully in a single bite.

        After eating sushi for a while you start feeling full. But you don’t want to stop, so they smash it down your throat with a bat.

        Well there are far too many people that are assholes, but food, food is always nice.
        Edit: Well unless it was made by assholes.

    “People who try Oculus Rift “walk out a believer”, says John Carmack” Well by all means Mr Carmack. Please send me one so I can become a believer. Until then I’ll wait because there’s doubt in my mind.

      I tried the OR. I’m not a believer. I guess that means I’m not a person. 🙁

    You’re still doing that? I walked into our other offices yesterday to look for something & when the people there started saying that stuff I told them I was in a hurry because I had someone waiting on the phone & couldn’t talk.

    Happy New Year and all that jazz. Since I’ve closed 2014 sick in bed and opened 2015 the same way I guess its going to be a shitty year. I’ll be your local lurker for this year then.
