Sushi, but kinda weird.........

OH had to go to his office yesterday, one of his German colleagues was there and had brought home made sushi with him, his wife is S Korean. He offered some to OH to try and it was very different to any he'd had before, it was neither fish nor vegetarian and he didn't have a clue what was in it so asked. His colleague replied SPAM.

Apparently SPAM sushi is a bit of a delicacy in S Korea, sounds kinds weird to me but OH said it was very nice

Let's not pretend here, anything with spam is tasty.

Okinawan cuisine has always been a bit different to the rest of Japan due to it's proximity to Taiwan/ China and of course the long American presence there.

We were supposed to be going there this year but it seems like we'll have to postpone that

This is one of those things we postponed and postponed and now there're little chances to get there anytime soon. On the plus side our kids will be older and we'll travel together for sure.....one day.

having been to mainland japan a few times, okinawa was a first for us (plus there was a budget direct flight fm SG) I really liked it, the islander feel (cuisine and mentality) i hope you can make it there sometime in the future, you won't regret it. we miss it already

So we did end up talking about Japan on a thread (seemingly) about Korean cuisine.

Re: Sushi, but kinda weird.........

Has to be better than the last lot of "sushi" I had in Houston - came piled high in a pyramid shape, with a guacamole lake around it, and corn chips on the side. Who knows what was in the contents of the "sushi", given raw anything just wasn't the done thing....and this from a Japanese restaurant that my friends all raved about...
