Veteran Nigiri Sushi Level

sillewater | Dec 11, 2012 09:30 PM

There already was a "best nigiri" thread (, however reading the thread the focus was not on nigiri.

My favorite thing to eat is nigiri so I want to know where the best is. Maybe you guys have heard of the MRI of sushi study ( Veteran sushi is different, and in a subjective level I know it would be really different. Much of sushi is a matter of texture, the Japanese talk of kuchi atari (mouthfeel), shitazawari (tonguefeel) and hagotae (tooth feel/resistance). So much of sushi in Vancouver has degenerated/evolved into mayo covered, cheese stuffed, mango-laden rolls.

So if you could help me out and focus on nigiri where can I find the best. Thanks.
