Sushi Question

This isn't really a cooking question but more of an etiquette question. What is the proper way to eat sushi? Do you cut the pieces into smaller pieces or do you hold the piece with a chop stick and bite off what you can, even if it take 2-3 bites before the piece is all consumed? I have a bet riding on this.

I was told the whole thing goes into your mouth at once.

The proper way is to eat the sushi all in one bit. If you just can not physically fit that much in your mouth then you can eat it in two bites. You do not want to put a half eaten piece down on your plate though. Once you bite it then hold it until you finish it. Sushi is actually finger food so picking it up with your fingers is completely acceptable. If you choose not to use your fingers then you can use chopsticks. It is actually easier with your fingers though if you plan on using soy sauce because the correct way to dip is to put the fish in the soy sauce, not the rice, (and just the corner of the fish, not the whole thing) and that can be kind of tricky with chop sticks.

Especially in Japan. Sushi is actually Japanese fast food.
