I recommend dipping the fish in soy sauce only, not rice. This is because the rice absorbs the soy sauce,” Mr. Kwak told 7Life.

“Always start the traditional way with soy sauce and wasabi first, and then if you want to try something different, order a new style of sushi with mayonnaise and chili sauce.”

It is recommended to eat pickled ginger between dishes to “purify” your taste.

Mr. Kwak also always suggested eating sushi or sashimi with the fish facing down, making sure it’s touching your tongue rather than the roof of your mouth.
