About This Quiz

Going out for sushi soon? What are you going to order? Would you believe that your answer might just reveal the place where you grew up?

It might sound wild, but the way you enjoy sushi can be a big indicator of where you come from. Everything from the place you choose to sit in the restaurant to the condiments you use to the rolls you order says something about your background and past experiences. A Midwesterner and a native of the Northwest may have totally different tastes in rolls, nigiri or sashimi (not to mention sake, beer and appetizers!) Whereas if you're from Louisiana, your feelings about crunchy shrimp rolls will be very different from those of a Californian.

In this quiz, we're going to ask you about your favorite sushi as well as your favorite sushi sides, condiments and even desserts. Each answer will give us another clue about where you're from and how it formed your personal taste. Don't be afraid to be honest: there's no wrong way to enjoy sushi, despite what some food snobs might say. So, are you ready to share your sushi preferences with us to find out what they say about you? Take this quiz!
