How do you eat sushi with other people?

boogiebaby | May 16, 2014 01:34 PM

If you go out to sushi with other people, how do you order? Do you order only what you want to eat, and then eat only what you ordered? Or do you all agree on what to order and then share, a la family style?

Just asking out of curiousity as my friends and I always decide together what to order and share, but my coworker mentioned that she always orders a couple sushi rolls and some sashimi just for herself and doesn't share. She thought it was odd that we shared our sushi with each other.

Note -- I don't want to know what is traditionally done in Japan, how the custom of eating sushi originated, which restaurant will refuse to serve you if you order sushi for just yourself, etc. I just want to know what you actually do. :)
