Name That Sushi

Last night I had some of the best sushi I've eaten in ages, and the weird thing is that I bought it at Central Market. It was better than the takeout place by my house and better than Tokyo One. The fish was perfectly fresh and completely yummy.

I got a combo with 6 different pieces of sushi and 8 pieces of assorted rolls, which is not bad for $10. However, it wasn't well labeled, so I'm not sure exactly what I was eating. The best piece was totally new to me, and I couldn't figure out what it was. So, I'm hoping that one of you can give me clue so I eat a lot more of it in the future.

It was translucent white with ridges and had a firm texture that was easy to bite - not chewy like clam or octopus - but it was less fleshy than fish. I'm thinking it may have been squid, although it wasn't tentacley. If anyone can confirm that I'd be grateful.

P.S. Yes, I know - the poor tuna, the poor ocean, blah, blah, blah. Let me tell you, I tried really hard to care, but the tuna can go eff themselves if they're going to be so damn tasty.

It probably was squid, from the tube, not the tentacles. The redges would be from scoring with a knife to keep it from curling when cooked. Yes, cooked. I don't believe it is typically served raw.

Argh. Ruffles have Ridges. I have no idea what a Redge is. Perhaps that is what you call ridge vomit...

I agree with da H-dog. Probably squid. Holly got that as part of her experimentation at Sushi Sake a couple of weeks ago. I have to say that I'm still running with the calimari form of squid as the only working exception to my mollusks-aren't-food theory.

Your P.S. was so funny that I think of it when people are pissing me off. For instance, in my dream last night, I woke up and went into the living room where the Fucking Whore's cats STILL WERE! I was so effing pissed. It was a whole thing. Anyway, when I awoke I just started thinking about the tasty, tasty tuna and started giggling. Good times.
