    Sushi: Nigiri is fish over rice. Maki is the rolls. Sashimi is sliced fish, no rice.

    SforH:

    Sushi is actually referring to the rice - sticky rice topped by a dab of wasabi and raw fish.

    The rolls you are describing are called maki

    Sashimi is just the carefully sliced uncooked fish itself.

    That makes 2 of us!

    To me sushi is Spring food anyhow.
    Sushi and a nice, cold Sapporo beer.
    Nom nom nom

    Surprisingly - here in the Midwest hinterland - we actually have a creditable sushi bar.
    It's a tiny place in the front of one of those teppanyaki places with the shared tables and big, iron grills.

    I've never been back to that part of the restaurant & will avoid it.
    No food-juggling for me, TYVM.

    But the sushi bar is good and has some of the best unagi (eel) I've had anywhere and that includes Tokyo

    I may need to go there tonight.....

    Actually, that's not exactly true. Whether in the U.S. or Japan, "sushi" does not automatically mean "fish slices of raw fish, mixed with, laid over or wrapped in or around special sushi rice". The term "sushi" is all about the rice. Period. The toppings can be anything & everything - which originated in Japan. In fact, it's only in the U.S. that sushi seemed to automatically mean raw fish. We're the ones who originally seemed to find toppings like "sweet omelet" & other non-raw-fish toppings odd - vegetarians notwithstanding. It's the Japanese who find the U.S. odd for only thinking of sushi in terms of raw fish. The Japanese have been topping sushi rice with non-fish offerings for decades longer than sushi has been in the U.S.

    And raw fish slices laid over sushi rice is called "Chirishu". I'm not a fan of it because I find there's just too much rice. Which is why I prefer sashimi (thinly-sliced raw fish minus any rice).

    I love me some Thai and some sushi rolls.
    I live in the BFE west portion of Ft. Worth but I tell you we have the best sushi place out here.
    And then of course the Blue chain in Ft. Worth. Not too shabby.

    There used to be a Mom/Pop Thai place in Dallas near UTSW. It has since closed (why I have NO idea) but I LOVED that place. Those hole in the wall places are the best.

    I LOVE asian food.

    My BO's husband is Japanese, so I'm getting quite the education on some Japanese home cooking. Loving the stuffed sweet buns.

    My favorite is Thai. There's a stall at the farmer's market where they'll make Pad Thai to order - it's fabulous.

    There's a local Vietnamese restaurant that also has a French bakery. Really good home made food and so inexpensive!

    Now I am hungry despite downing some wings just now!

    I love pho, obsessed. Kim chi stew (hard to find!) Is fantastic, and I love sushi. And Chinese, and a lot of the regular Japanese stuff too. Spicy Tuna is my favorite for sushi... Obsessed! Seafood soup... Okay I need to stop now!

    As far as appetizers I would do edame, gyoza... If you could do Thai tea that would be epic. And another vote for the green tea iced cream! I got some at Wegmans and ate the entire carton before my husband got a chance to try it... In one sitting... It is so good!

    I love Asian noodle-based dishes. Udon and pad thai make me a very happy person. I also really like sushi, but it has to be made with good fish. I am, however, absolutely abysmal at cooking in the Japanese style (this despite a really excellent cookbook I stole off my roommate) so I rely on the place up the road.

    I've been trying to make Chinese-style dumplings and wontons, and I've got the filling about right, but I just can't get the dough together yet.

    I'm Asian, so it's a good thing I like Asian cuisine! I love all kinds, including sushi.

    Assuming you don't have an Asian grocery for really specialized/imported stuff, here's some simple ideas from different countries:

    Appetizers- Teriyaki beef stick (or sub chicken
    http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1727...242197,00.html
    Asian coleslaw (Google for one of the 800 recipes with ingredients you'd prefer)
    Egg drop soup
    http://chinese.food.com/recipe/egg-drop-soup-619

    Dessert- You can find Mochi (ice cream wrapped in rice dough) at a lot of places these days, including Whole Foods http://www.mochiicecream.com/locator.asp
    Mango over coconut rice
    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...Mangoes-233842
    Almond "Tofu" you can substitute coconut milk for the water. If you only substitute part of the water for coconut milk, it ends up with a cool layered effect
    http://www.food.com/recipe/almond-tofu-337867
    Or the cheap Chinese restaurant dessert, sliced oranges

    Beverages: You might be able to find Sapporo or TsingTao at a good beer store. Thai iced coffee or tea.
    "Yuanyang " (coffee with tea, can be served hot or iced)
