    Fitting since this is a forum about Japanese trucks, but does anyone out there love Japanese food as much as I do? I never had it until I moved to Cali where there's lots of Sushi joints. I didn't really like it the first few times, but now I can eat the hell out of it.

    LOVE IT, when I was 15 years old my best friend was Japanese and his Grandmother got us a jobs at a Japanese resturant, dish washer-bus boy. We got to eat dinner every night we worked, the cooks were little old Japanese grandmothers, and they would cook a meal for the entire staff after we closed, nothing like anything I have ever had, most of the meals were big soups with all kinds of fish heads(Honestly) and rice, nothing like what you would find on the menu, but man was it good.

    I used to go to this one joint out here. There was this old Japanese lady who ran it and she had lived in Alabama of all places 40 years before moving to Cali. What's funny is that a lot of Japanese "soul food" is like Southern food. Lots of fried stuff. So you can have fried fish, fried pork (Kontatsu) and other stuff. But I like sushi rolls, sashimi ( chunks of fish) and sushi. Pretty good stuff especially when dipped in wasabi.

    when I was 15 years old my best friend was Japanese , he's 36 now, and still Japanese, buy yes, the Sushi and sashimi was different at the time but now every chance I get, I have some. I agree about the Japanese soul food, I would have put anyone of those Grandmothers and their ability to fry food up against a southern woman any time. Man I'm hungry.

    HELL YEAH!! I wasn't real thrilled with sushi until I spent 2 weeks in Japan. Got a HUGE love of it there.

    Now the wife and I hit up a hibachi and sushi place near here like once a month.

    Ive honestly never tried sushi. The thought of raw fish just sounds gross to me. Id be up for giving it a shot if I knew of some really good sushi restaurants in my area though.
    I love Japan and I have a lot of respect for the Japanese, Im just not crazy about their food.

    The wife and I ate sushi Friday night. I'll eat almost all there is to offer, but I can't stomach anything with roe on it.

    I've actually taking a liking to the Octopus and Squid.

    I could eat sushi everyday for the rest of my life. It is probably the only food I could say that about. It's healthy too!

    I love Japanes food.

    I do the Sushi of course, then there's the noodle place in HB that has all manner of noodles.

    Then, there's Shabu Shabu.

    Then, there's a Tepankayi place.

    Of course there's the cheesy Bennihani. Food is OK, and I realize it's the enterrainment that's the highlight.

    OH, then in LA there's Yamashiro's overlooking LA.

    So much.
