in thread On sushi:

I am no expert on sushi, but I have been told that most wasabi in typical sushi houses is not *true* wasabi. Apparently true wasabi commands an extremely high price, somewhere around $300USD an ounce. I remember being told what was used as wasabi, but not what they said.

Anyone know anymore about this?

Update: wil pointed me to this site about wasabi. Interesting information.

    I would guess horseradish with a thickner and green food dye.

    Please see my resume; I am looking for a Bioinformatics Scientist/Programmer position.

      If so not your garden variety horseradish. I abhor sushi, but have had wasabi and it was nothing like the horesradish I've had.

    I have found many sushi bars now provide "fresh" wasabi for USD2-5 extra per person. The more expensive places actually grate it there. The taste is fantastic and nothing like the powedered stuff. You usually have to ask--it may not be on the menu.
