Sushi takeout/delivery: your thoughts? (plus a question about yaki onigiri)

tatamagouche | Aug 2, 2009 11:41 AM

I'm assuming it's a no-no for connoisseurs, since so much of the experience inheres in engaging with the itamae. But for the rest of us yokels, focusing strictly on the quality of the food, do you think delivered sushi is automatically inferior? Or do you think it can be delivered in more or less the same pristine state it left the restaurant in?

Bonus question: Can someone tell me about yaki onigiri? I'd never had it before until yesterday, and I have to admit I don't get it. It was just this huge clump of rice, about the size of a flattened softball, barely grilled on the outside, sitting in about a quarter-inch of teriyaki sauce. I'm guessing either it was a bad version or I need schooling in what to appreciate when eating it. Anyone?
