  1. Great Sushi is a very different experience than good sushi……….Interesting to me……….My first experience to sushi was by Chef Morimotto so I am very opinionated…..I used to live relatively close to the restaurant he worked at. No other sushi was like Morimotos…….

    1. Exactly sushi is my favourite food above all, likewise tacos, but with just one different, nice sushi expensive and the best tacos so cheap, regardless those are my favourites
