my first sushi - etiquette question

jujuthomas | May 14, 2007 06:01 AM

so my hubby and I went out to dinner saturday night, to a japanese place we like a lot, and I decided to order a few pieces of sushi to keep dinner light. YUM. I had ones with crab, and shrimp - cooked b/c I'm still not sure about raw fish. (OK, I did try a piece of his salmon sashimi and it was pretty good) His platter came with california roll on it, which he doesn't like so I ate it. However, I'm not really crazy about the cucumber. Is it bad form to ask for them to leave the cuke out? i know it was probably really bad manners but i took my chop stick and poked the cukes out - we were at a table not at the sushi bar - i would never do that in front of the sushi chef! We have their take out menu at home so I'm going to look to see what other kinds of Maki they have, since I really enjoyed it.
I'm sorry, I'm rambling. I don't think my coffee has kicked in yet! ;-)

thanks!
