I could eat sushi for lunch every work day and for dinner every weekend night–I’m addicted. It’s Victoria Beckham’s typical meal, too, so that’s how I know it’s low-carb and posh. But what is the one thing even die-hards like Victoria and I know NOT to do when ordering sushi?
The answer is to get it on Sundays and Mondays.
Anthony Bourdain wrote about it in his book, and “Rich Kids Of Instagram” star Dorothy Wang even uses the hashtag #nosushionsunday–but why? Because the fish markets aren’t open on Sundays, so whatever raw fish the sushi chef is using for your roll on Monday has been kicking around the kitchen for a few days. It’s not necessarily dangerous, it’s just not fresh.
If you don’t care, then go ahead and keep ordering any day of the week… but if you’re a bit of a food snob or even remotely a foodie, it’s kind of a good rule to follow. Why pay top dollar for sashimi tuna that’s 4 days old? Just get Italian that night instead. K?
