    Most people only eat maki. People give me eyes when we "order sushi" and I request sashimi.

    For the same reason we distinguish pizza from Italian. Yes, sushi consists of raw fish, so literally it is food that comes from the sea. However, when people say "seafood" they are 99% of the time referring to things like crab, lobster, shrimp and dishes with cooked fish, stuff like that. If someone said, "let's get seafood" and you took them to a sushi restaurant they would be disappointed because that's 100% not what they meant.

    True. Most people do eat those rolls with a billion things on and in them. Nigiri and sashimi are where it's at.

    But at the end of the day, it's still all seafood. I don't say I'm not eating seafood because it's tuna tartare or seared halibut or a nicoise salad.

    Also maki is usually more avocado, rice, and veggies than fish. It would be like calling a sandwich "meat".

    Ugh. We've already covered this. All sushi is seafood but not all seafood is sushi. If you're in the mood for seafood or fish, then sushi is 100% an option. This is the equivalent of saying a hot dog isn't a sandwich.

    That's true, but you need the fish in there to make it maki. You can have plain rolls with just fish and rice, but I digress.

    I agree 100% on a literal level. I just think that socially "seafood" has a pretty specific meaning.

    Fair enough haha. I know I've personally said to people "I could go for seafood tonight" and if someone says "that sounds good, how about sushi?" I'm like, "fuck yeah!" and then we eat fish together.

    I will give you that it's unfair that seafood is its own category when it's an entire food group.

    I hate that this quest has pitted pizza against sushi. I love both equally. It was like trying to choose between my future olympian children. There's room in the backyard training gauntlet for both, ya know?
