I have this great authentic Japanese Sushi Restaurant by my work that I order over the phone and pick up. I always order what I have had before and it is next to impossible to get a reccommendation because they are so busy, but then when I go to pick up there are great looking things all around that everyone else knew to order. Please help me venture out from my limited knowledge of good items at sushi restaurants.
I love the chewiness of sushi and udon noodles and have pretty much stuck with simple sushi rolls, such as california rolls, spicy crunchy tuna rolls, salmon rolls, spider rolls, tempura rolls, eel rolls.
I also have tried other safe options such as dumplings, sauteed yakisoba or udon noodles, or bento boxes with tempura, salmon or chicken teriyaki. I can't take anything super spicy, but otherwise I am an adventurous eater. What else should I be ordering? Please help.
