Sushi Newbie

I took my mom who had never had sushi before for her first sushi experience. We had a ball.

The only sushi she had ever tried were California rolls. Well, she brought her adventurous appetite and tried all kinds of things like; rainbow roll, tuna sashimi, salmon sashimi, spider roll, seaweed salad, edamame and red bean ice cream.

I was totally impressed. She tried everything I challenged her to try. Neither of us eat shrimp, so that limited us just slightly. When I asked her how she liked it -- she said -- it tasted like fresh ocean and that it was MUCH yummier than she expected. The salmon sashimi was her hands down favorite.

This just reminded me no matter what your age of level of experience - it's never too late to try something new! :)

That's so true. Just when you thought your parents were so predictable they will surprise you!
When my mom was visiting from India, we took her to Ihop and she tried and loved the pancakes. She would also buy all kinds of beans from the grocery store and try to experiment with recipes.
