When you are eating sushi at a San Jose Japanese restaurant, there is a certain way you should go about it. Watch this video for helpful etiquette tips for eating sushi at restaurants.
After you arrive at the restaurant and are seated at your table, you may want to order sake for yourself or to share with your dining companions. Tradition dictates that you should only pour sake for other people—never for yourself. Once your food has arrived, it is customary to eat sashimi first, followed by nigiri, and then your sushi rolls. Use a small amount of soy sauce poured into your dish, and mix in a little bit of wasabi if you want your sushi to have an extra kick. Practice using chopsticks to eat your sushi, as using a fork can detract from your authentic Japanese restaurant experience. Use the pickled ginger between bites of sushi to cleanse your palate and prepare you for the next delicious taste.
