    i tried sushi for first time last year, it was ok. went to a Sushi Conveyor belt place in Boston. Fried Green tea ice cream was better than i thought it would be.

    you should go someplace where the sushi is made fresh and to order. you never know how long the stuff has been revolving on those conveyor belt places. places on the coasts are best as the fish is fresh and not cryo-packed.

    Sushi in the US can be as good or better than in Japan. There's really not a lot to it, it's either fresh and well assembled or not.

    Japanese curry, katsudon, yakiniku, udon, raamen, zaru/yakisoba, etc. are some bomb ass Jap dishes.

    there are some dishes you won't easily find here though. the infused tofu is only served in those places that cater to expats here, and in Englewood Cliffs (because American audiences find the preparation cruel and inhumane)

    that place in Boston did go out of business soon after too......my Japanese gf said the sushi was ok there, they have those places in Hawaii
    i went to one in Poughkeepsie, ny too.......had a little sushi there and mainly tempura stuff. might try one in nyc, the next time i head down there.
