Do you save the best for last? Eat it first? Or do you eat it somewhere in between? Arguments I’ve heard are “Eat the best last so it leaves a lasting impression.” Eat the best first, because you may be too full at the end." “Eat the best somewhere in between as a compromise.”
I just finished some sashimi cut from a #2 (not sushi grade) tuna steak. Because it was a steak, I got a cross section of the fish. I started with the small section of fattier meat (possibly the best part), then ate the parts with the connective tissue and worked though the rest from end to end, finishing with a piece in the middle. Not the best, but very satisfying.
Before starting I debated how to tackle it and ended in the order listed above. A different day and the order may have changed. When I eat a beef steak or cut of prime rib, I usually alternate between both ends since they’re the most well done and work my way to wards the middle, leaving that last bite towards the side for the end, a perfect mix of meat and fat.
When I eat fruits, I sometimes stop if I hit that perfect bite or with things like grapes and cherries leave the rest because the last one may be bad.
What’s your methods?
