How to find real wasabi?

Randy Brook | May 20, 2001 10:38 PM

How does one know when a restaurant serves real wasabi? Do you assume at a high quality restaurant like, say, Tojo's in Vancouver, the wasabi will be real? Or is it something you have to order specially?

I've eaten at many sushi restaurants (not yet in Vancouver) but I only learned recently of the difference between real wasabi and the paste often served. Thus, I don't know if I've ever even had real wasabi.
