Congrats, Kitaro! All the interest in sushi has made me think I may be missing out on something. Okay, you sushi aficionados, what's the best selection for a sushi novice to try?

The standard is California Roll which is cooked crab with avacado and cucumber. Also a must try is the Eel Roll which is also cooked, and has a really nice brown sugar soy sauce on top A Caterpillar Roll (which i know lucky sushi has) is an eel roll with avocado on top, wonderful Philadelphia Roll is cream cheese and cooked or smoked salmon Also check out the appetizers, i really enjoy seaweed salad to accompany my sushi, its thin stips of seaweed which have been marinated in a sweet sauce, really dont have anything to compare to. Miso soup is essentially a vegetable broth with cubes of tofu, it comes standard at some places, if not its only about $2. Its a nice lite way to start a meal. In terms of quantities, my wife usually gets 2 rolls and an appetizer (like crab rangoon), I will usually get 3 rolls and an appetizer. Also remember that "tempura" means fried, either the whole roll is deep fried or the fish/shellfish is fried, really adds a nice mix of textures.

Also to start, steer towards cooked, until you are adventuresome enough to try some raw. Don't eat raw sushi if you are pregnant.
