I love salmon, and I prefer raw to cooked. I'm sure it also depends on how well they prepare it.

Hibachi is basically Japanese barbecue. I love it (what I've had).

I've never had Japanese food other than sushi and tempura. Not cooked by Japanese people - only at fusion restaurants so I don't know how real Japanese food tastes... But I'm not a fan of eating raw fish either.

There's one called Taste of Saigon in Ridgewood that a friend told me is good. I no longer reside in that area, but my mom does so sometime when I'm up there I might check it out. A Google search also tells me there's one in Red Bank, a short hop from where I live now.

No matter which country makes a tasty dish of food, I will like it. Where I live, the only Asian places are Chinese and I wish many other countries were represented. long ago I took a road trip with 2 other women and learned how limited their palates were... steak, baked potato and salad. How boring! That's what both ordered at Antoines in New Orleans, whereas I asked for suggestions from the waiter and had delicious Pompeno en papillote (cooked in paper bag) with potato puffs. Dishes new to me and very good. Of course, my friends were also pleased with their choices. I've read about moose-nose stew being on the menu of a place in Siberia and if I were there I would try it. I'm thinking nose would be similar to chicken gizzard in texture...

Ridgewood is accessible for me so I'll definitely try taste of Saigon. We occasionally go to a place in Bloomfield and it's good but it's way too popular and the parking lot is tiny. Line out the door on weekends and it's not a convenient location for us.

Going back to Japanese food, teriyaki anything should be pretty tasty. It's the same as with korean barbecue, you can't go wrong there.

Switch-over? Why does there have to be a switch-over?

There's no forgetting about one cuisine because I've discovered a new one. I eat every cuisine that I like, including Chinese and Japanese.
