Is it common to add salt when cooking plain boiled or steamed rice? Specifically, is this widely done in India, China or Japan?

Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for a sushi first-timer?

NYC-foodie-filter: A friend of mine wants to try sushi for the very first time. The game plan is to order a couple of pieces as an appetizer and either proceed to a full entree if she enjoys it or bail and order something different if it turns out that raw fish is not to her liking. Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for this culinary adventure? I'd prefer a place in Manhattan or Queens, easily accessible from Midtown Manhattan and reasonably priced. Not too fancy. [more inside]

How long do you cook daifuku?

A co-worker brought back a box of "Chocolate Daifuku" from Tokyo. She thinks we need to microwave this stuff, in order to "puff it up" and eat it. Question, is she right? How long do we need to cook it? Why did she bring back foodstuffs that she didn't know how to eat?
