We agree with each of these tips, although we have been adding wasabi to soy sauce for the past thirty years (in all but the most formal of sushi joints).
This probably means that sushi chefs and servers across the nation have been calling us a maroon. So be it.
Thank you, helpful reader Jerry Felp.
