In Japan, we don't make nigiri sushi often at home. But when a group of people get together, we do hand roll sushi party. Hand roll sushi is the easiest type of sushi to make and you can fill it how ever and with whatever you like. One day, we had a sushi party at home in NYC. The challenge is where to get sashimi fish from? I go to the Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market for sashimi quality fish. Their fish is really fresh and great quality. You can buy cut sashimi or uncut fish by the pound. They sell already made sushi and also have sushi counter where you can eat in the store. I have tried the already made sushi, and sushi from the counter at the Lobster Place. They use great quality fish, but for the sushi, the sushi rice and nigiri sushi size and the pressure to make nigiri sushi was not quite right. I really love sushi, and I am very particular to the combination of sushi rice and fish. With sushi, the rice and nori/seaweed is just as important if not more than the fish. In the end, we had a great hand roll sushi party using sashimi fish from the Lobster Place.

日本でも人が集まる時は手巻きパーティーをする人達が多いと思うけど、ニューヨーク在住の私もよく手巻き寿司パーティーをします。でも、日本と違う事は何処でも刺身を売っているってわけではない所かな。私が刺身を買いに行くのは、チェルシーマーケットの中にあるお魚屋さんロブスタープレイス。ココの魚はとっても新鮮で良い品質の魚ばかり。切り身の刺身も売っているし、計り売りもしてくれてとても便利。ヒラメ、サバ、たことかもあるよ。ココでは他に、持ち帰り寿司と、なんと、魚屋さんの中に寿司カウンターまであるんですよ!私はココのお寿司もカウンターのお寿司も試した事あるんですが、お寿司の感想は、ネタは新鮮で美味しい!だけど、肝心のすし飯と握り方、そして海苔がちょっと違うんよね。そこが残念やったな。ですが、ロブスタープレイスの刺身を使った手巻きパーティーは最高に美味しいし、楽しい時間を過ごせました。
