I used to be a big roll person (heck, still am), but now I'm slowly drifting to eating more traditional sushi. Just fish over rice. It really depends on my mood, and I don't feel strongly either way (or more, I feel very strongly about both), but I was just curious. Which do you prefer?

I much prefer rolls over nigiri. There's just something about the texture of a big slab of fish that I can't deal with. Once the fish is wrapped in rice, and seaweed, I'll eat a bucket load!

I like trying the different combinations that they come up with at my favorite sushi place, but I also like nigiri and sashimi.

I prefer the rolls.... I like the simple spicy tuna rolls, and several of the fancier rolls that are made at my local restaurant....

I want some sushi too now!

I like rolls or just the pieces of fish. Lately I've been eating a rainbow roll a lot that I get at Whole Foods that's got rice, fish, and advocado in it. I love sushi any kind of way really.

I started out with rolls, then went to nigiri .. now I just eat sashimi. I'll do one of those fancy schmancy designer rolls now and then but basically I eat just the plain fish. My favorites are: tuna, salmon, red snapper, yellowtail, and mackerel; although I ususally order a "sashimi platter" which comes with all sorts of fish that I don't know :P

I prefer nigiri sushi, but like simple rolls too...not the fancy rainbow/dragon rolls. I don't like the seaweed wrapping on the rolls, it's too salty and the taste is too much for me.

I hate that crab stick surimi stuff in the california roll...I prefer the real thing!
