    I should also take a moment to say that in addition to how drunk, it also matters a lot where I am.

    High quality place? Sushi.

    Questionable quality place? Fish and chips.


    Also, shout out to Iceland. BEST fish and chips I have ever had. Best seafood damn near. Can't find a bad fish dish in that country.

    They say cleaning a shark with 45 mins, the meat is good to go and doesnt allow the natural ammonia secretion. After that 45 min mark it is very hard to cook/eat.

    Ive had a lot of fermented stuff and Ive had shark cooked after its secreted a lot of ammonia before. I would pass on fermented shark with high ammonia levels.

    I like both. Started trying sushi in college, stuck with it. Fried fish, think i've had always had them. Don't eat both too often, but I enjoy them when I have them.

    Think i saw in one of those travel videos; Sushi in Japan is one of the cheapest street food. In the U.S. it can be a bit overpriced.

    Doesn't surprise me in the least. I'm always telling people from all over the country that Houston is the most diverse city in the country. Except that I use the term "functionally diverse." And what I mean by that is that we're all just in it together down here, and we just coexist. I can go 5-10 minutes in any direction and find any type of food and any type of culture. NYCers don't like to hear that, because they think NYC is tops in everything. Psssh, NYC diversity as with almost everything NYC is mostly show with little substance. Like most NYCers.

    Anyway, to answer the question: probably sushi. I would be glad to have some recommendations for some really good fish and chips in the Houston area. There isn't much good food I don't like.

    I'll also be that guy that points out that sushi is named for the rice and there are many types of sushi that do not involve fish. That said, I do enjoy a good nigiri plate. Just the featured ingredient (often fish) on top of a ball of rice. None of the gaudy rolls many places put out to appeal to Western eyes. Still, I don't eat sushi much. I prefer other Japanese dishes.

    Now I want sushi and fish and chips.

    I chose fish and chips... but good fish and chips is much harder to find than good sushi.

    When I do find a spot with the right breading and bomb malt vinegar I’m in heaven.

    So they eat sharks that are 300 years old, but they hang 'em out on a clothesline to ferment and smell like ammonia first? Actually, I saw an episode of Bizarre Foods where Andrew Zimmern ate this. It probably ranks up there with lutefisk. I'd still eat either one of those before even thinking about attempting something like balut, though.

    I saw a nature special about how the Inuit Greenland shark. They hang it in the sea for awhile to leach out the ammonia. Unfortunately the lose a lot to other sharks that might eat the carcass.

    I had some fried fish last night but didn't feel like shelling out the money for good fish and chips so instead got some fried catfish. Got it from one of the fish and chicken places along Lake Street that had been damaged during the riots and they still were boarded up. Glad to see them back in business.

    The far north Euro countries have some nasty fish dishes.

    I was raised on Hernekeitto (Finnish Split Pea Soup) though. Delicious.

    Fish and chips is satisfying but it’s still just a deep fried food and any deep fried food has a glass ceiling with regards to how “great” it can be. Sushi, on the other hand, can be a work of culinary and aesthetic art. No one has ever gone to a Michelin starred fish and chips joint. Sushi easily wins this round.

    Where's the fried and beer battered sashimi option? Sounds very Texanese...

    NGL, my guilty pleasure has been LJS trashy combo plates.

    I thought everyone on Clutchfans was Asian?

    My grandfather was pure Finnish and my grandmother would make it weekly. I lived with them until I was 6.

    Depends on the occasion:
    Sushi while in a restaurant, Fish&Chips when travelling and just having a quick meal.

    What am I missing? Looks basically like "regular" split pea soup with different aromatics.
