ohhhh its sooo good :D
if its your first time eating sushi everyone always suggests the california rolls. they're just the most universally likeable. you may want to stay away from the raw fish because its a bit more of an acquired taste. miso soup is obviously delicious, and a spider roll is basically deep fried soft shell crab in a roll which is one of my favorites. Inari is this sort of sweet rice pocket thing that is also good for beginners, cause its very simple and tasty. Tastes a bit like honey. and of course sushi newbies always order teriyaki chicken or something cause its more what they are used to. usually the rice is white. cucumber rolls are also a plain universally likeable dish. none of these are really an acquired taste.
the big thing is to figure out which things you like in your sushi, and pick the rolls that have those things. often they will have house specials, which are their own creations. my favorite roll right now is called a "sunset roll" which is a california roll topped with spicy tuna drizzled in this sweet sauce and spicy mayo. soooo good.
if you do feel adventurous, here are some fun things to try. unagi is fresh water eel, and it tastes a bit like bbq chicken. its less of an acquired taste than it sounds. i used to hate spicy tuna rolls cause the texture of raw fish is not so pleasant, kind of slimy, and the place i used to get sushi from as a kid didn't make good ones. so if you're going to try it, go with someone who knows the place and has eaten there before. to me, only some places do a good spicy tuna roll, and i still dont like salmon rolls that much.0
