How to Eat Sushi - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Eating sushi at the counter in front of sushi chef can be a little intimidating. If you know these rules, there is nothing to be afraid of. First of all, you do not want to put the right side of sushi in to the soy sauce. If you want extra Wasabi, what you can do instead of putting a Wasabi straight into soy sauce, you can just take a little Wasabi like this and then put it on top of the fish. You can either grab it with your hand or you can use chop sticks of course and, just take the sushi like this and dip the fish side down like so. Bon Appetite!
