The following information should prove useful to you in any Japanese restaurant, although it's a bit more than you'll need to know in your average Montreal Japanese eatery. Still, it's always good to know how to order a Sea-chub in a loud and confident voice so as not to appear like a country bumpkin in front of your friends and business associates.
So, without further ado, proceed to the chart below and get out your Japanese food notebook.

Kaiseki Ryori
If you're Pierre Elliott Trudeau the chef might just make some for you.
Sushi & Sashimi
Learn the classical six-step cycle and why shrimp dance.
Fugu (Pufferfish)
How best to pray the chef is having a good day.
Nabemono (Things in a pot)
You'll be pushing around 480-pound gorillas in no time.
Tempura

Soba and Udon
