What is the Japanese term for when the sushi chef prepares a sushi meal for you based on what the sushi chef deems to be fresh and good, as well as what you would be interested in eating?

I believe this is a term or style. There's generally no ordering off a set menu.

  • I've eaten a lot of sushi in my life but have never been brave enough to try this. I think I should. Thanks for the idea. – Dinah Aug 23 '10 at 2:49
  • Dinah, do. But only do it with a really good and creative sushi chef. They will give your tastebuds orgasms. – daniel Aug 23 '10 at 6:34
