Tai Show North Japanese Restaurant in East Setauket

Tai Show North located on Main Street is East Setauket is a fine Japanese Restaurant offering some very interesting sushi combinations and a one of a kind dining experience.

The restaurant has a variety of choices. You can choose to eat in the hibachi section or in the dinning area. Once in the dinning area, you can choose to eat in a screen enclosed booth.  The booths are located along a wall and there are movable screens that slide along a track. You step into the booth and then the waiter slides the Japanese inspired screen leaving you and your dinning buddies in a private and secluded area. I thought it was something really unique, I never ate in something like that before.

The menu offers a large selection of choices. They give you a small dish of edamame to munch on while you flip through the menu. Continue reading

Candy Sushi

I never imaged the mixture of sushi and candy! It’s a really neat https://i2.wp.com/www.asianfoodgrocer.com/blog/sushicandy.jpgthing, I think. Perhaps you are not a fan of fish, but you enjoy Swedish fish. It looks like candy sushi will be a perfect fun snack for you to make and eat. I found a lot of different ways to make these sweet treats. Fruit roll-ups are usually used to be the pretend seaweed. The rice is imitated by either Rice Krispies Treats, marshmallows or even mini powdered donuts. The inside part of the sushi roll can really be created with anything from you imagination. It could include anything from Swedish fish, gummy


worms to Twizzlers. Whatever candy you like will work. The picture to the right even includes a roll that looks like a Twinkie wrapped in fruit roll-up. (Who would of thought?)  Students are always willing to try new things, so why not candy sushi.

Here are some links to check out with some recipes and helpful tips to make candy sushi.

*Some other ideas: What about chocolate syrup as soy sauce or maybe vanilla icing with green food coloring scooped on a plate to look like wasabi. The possibilities are endless! Make your own creations and give your rolls creative names.

Sushi Secrets:What kind of fish are you getting when you order sushi?

I am came across this video on YouTube and it was really eye-opening, especially because I enjoy sushi and eat it at least once a week. Finding out that restaurants could be using other fish then what their menu says is very shocking.

In my own personal sushi experience something like that happened to me. I order a spicy tuna roll  in a Japanese restaurant in Binghamton, New York. When I received my order the spicy tuna was more of an orange color compared to its usual rich red color. It seemed as if they tried to serve me salmon instead of tuna. I didn’t make a compliment and just ate it anyway. However, after seeing this video I think I was in-fact served the wrong type of fish.

Keep an eye out and watch what kind of fish is being served on your plate the next time you order sushi.
