Get those loan apps ready, education doesn’t come cheap. I had to drop out and re-enroll at community sushi college.

I think I just licked my phone.
Man, Shunji-san is having fun and going all out! I haven’t had either but looks like Shunji’s Bento can hold its own against Hayato’s Bento?
I prefer Hayato’s but the Shunji one is very good.
Bento Harder. Sugoi.
p.s. No sawagani hitchhiker in your Shunji box?!
my crab must have found another box to inhabit
Shunji’s food looks delicious!
With that being said and I really don’t want to induce too much thread drift, but is anyone that is currently eating sushi concerned about food borne transmission of Covid from sushi prep?
I am still eating uncooked foods but very selective in the places and things we are choosing to eat uncooked. However, with sushi and other assorted dishes being offered by itamaes in LA I feel that there is a lot of hand to food contact which is a major concern for me.
Anyone have thoughts, care to share how their opinion? I ask because I really want to eat sushi lol.
kenji doesn’t think so
All the science points to NO transmission through food itself. I would suggest: picking up the sushi, removing it from all packaging and putting it on a clean/sterilized plate, washing your hands thoroughly, then eating.
the king crab and i - king crab chirashi, ikura, tamago, japanese cucumber
Devoured this on my way to picking up my next bang, pretty good.

Me as I watch a piece of ikura bounce off my lap and roll into the black hole that is the space between the center console and my car seat, never to be seen again.
You might smell it eventually, though.
