Dining Room

What makes sushi great? Draught from the micro brewery? Perhaps.

"Sushi" is the sweet vinegared rice sometimes called sushi-mashi. "Rolls" are "Maki Sushi" consisting of a sheet of nori (seaweed) with a layer of rice, fish and other stuff, rolled into a cylinder then sliced into pieces. The menu says "5-8 pieces" depending on how sturdy the roll is and how slender the pieces can be cut, but regardless when you stack the pieces it’s one complete roll (meaning a cylinder).

Sakka Blue takes reservations, walk-ins, good for groups, take out, and reported excellent waiter service. They specialize in lunch, dinner, & drinks with japanese food, sea food or vegetarian dishes.

Sushi Etiquette

"Unlike sashimi, which is almost always eaten with chopsticks, nigirizushi is traditionally eaten with the fingers, even in formal settings.[43] While it is commonly served on a small platter with a side dish for dipping, sushi can also be served in a bento, a box with small compartments that hold the various dishes of the meal.

Soy sauce is the usual condiment, and sushi is normally served with a small sauce dish, or a compartment in the bento. Traditional etiquette suggests that the sushi is turned over so that only the topping is dipped; this is because the soy sauce is for flavoring the topping, not the rice, and because the rice would absorb too much soy sauce and would fall apart.[44] If it is difficult to turn the sushi upside-down, one can baste the sushi in soy sauce using gari (sliced ginger) as a brush. Toppings which have their own sauce (such as eel) should not be eaten with soy sauce.

Traditionally, the sushi chef will add an appropriate amount of wasabi to the sushi while preparing it, and etiquette suggests eating the sushi as is, since the chef is supposed to know the proper amount of wasabi to use. However, today wasabi is more a matter of personal taste, and even restaurants in Japan may serve wasabi on the side for customers to use at their discretion, even when there is wasabi already in the roll.[45]"
