    4. Must-Know Japanese Vocabulary when Ordering Sushi Top

    When you want to get the attention of the sushi chef, yell out loud…
    すいません!(Suimasen!)

    When ordering, use the phrase meaning “give me,”….
    〜お願いします(onegai shimasu)

    Also, there are some special counters for sushi!
    〜丁(ちょう) - the counter for the food dishes
    〜貫(かん) - the counter for sushi. That refers to “one ball” of sushi.

    Peter ordered by saying…
    トロサーモン一つお願いします。(Torosāmon hitotsu onegai shimasu.)

    Yuki ordered by saying…
    すいません、ヤリイカ三貫と、中トロ一丁!(Suimasen, yariika san-kan to, chūtoro itchō!)
