Food Porn: Nijo

"The first sushi I ever had was from a grocery store. Wegman's grocery store, to be exact, in Rochester, New York. One black plastic clamshell to-go box, a little piece of fake grass, a mound of green-dyed horseradish masquerading as wasabi, sliced ginger that tasted like sucking on disinfecting wipes. There were four pieces of tekka maki, the tuna an impossible purple like it was being strangled, and two ebi handrolls. The rice tasted like eating a mouthful of nursery-school paste, the shrimp like biting the blade of a plastic spatula. It was singularly awful sushi.

And I loved it like I loved my first blow job."
