Sashimi is thinly sliced raw food commonly understood in Singapore as a smörgåsbord of raw fish, including shellfish, mollusks, roe, and millet. More adventurous forms of sashimi, made from beef, horse and deer, exist as well.
Sashimi can also come served on a bed of rice in the form of chirashi-don. Here are some of the more popular types of raw fish enjoyed by sushi-eaters all around the world:

Use a chopstick to grasp the sashimi. Then dip it lightly in shoyu, and add some wasabi if you prefer. If you are not comfortable with chopsticks, you may use a fork or bare hands to eat too.
The most important thing to remember is to take your time and savour the flavour!
