Ah, yes, I am absolutely in love with wasabi!!!I also put it on everything I eat, like sushi, onigiri, anything! I just love the taste and spiceyness of it. Also, it would be very interesting if it could be made into toothpaste...I would deffinatly brush my teeth like, five times a day if that was ever invented!
All that I can say is:
I hate Wasabi!
It doesn't taste good! ><
The first time I had wasabi was 3 years ago and I was tricked into eating a whole table spoon of it, I when out to eat with my friends at a japanese restaurant and everything was going good until the bill came, lets just say rock always wins. Anywho for revange my sister got a big glob of wasabi and said it was mint icecream, I can't say no to mint icecream so I got a big table spoon of it and the trick was done, in the end tho I grow to like wasabi.
I haaaaaate wasabi. I hate how it goes up my nose. My grandma used to try to make me eat a spoonful of wasabi when I had a blocked nose, so it would un-block it, but I always yelled and cried and refused outright. ^^;; Some people like their sushi with just a hint of wasabi, but I'll do WITHOUT ANY, thankyouverymuch.
And soy sauce......... don't you eat your sushi with shoyu, atomik_sprout??
I LOVE sushi with a passion but I HATE wasabi sauce.
EWW! I HATE IT! omg
when i tried it i was like chuggin down water and stuff. it was nasty.
i cant stand having my nose like cleared out like that. it was icky!
Yeah... gotta comment on this thread... I have some feeings on the issue.
Now, I dont disslike wasabi... just not on my sushi. I'd eat by itself before I put it on my sushi. Same with ginger. I used to eat these "wasabi peas"... these little spicy dehydrated peas... I LOVE those.
My thing is... I like sushi rolls plain. No soy sauce (half the time its not even REAL soy sauce the put in those packets). No wasabi. No ginger. I actually prefer spiced ginger-root to ginger.
Now Im hungry....sheesh.
Wasbi is good when it is covering salted peanuts. My teacher brought some and sared with the class. Half of the class went out to get a drink of water.
