Je n'ai pas trouvé les sushis

Why is it "les" (sushi in general) instead of "de" (not any)?  Same question later on in reverse - why is it "si vous avez de la Tiger" (some Tiger) and not "la Tiger" (Tiger beer in general)? Somehow I can understand how to use the subjunctive, but cannot master the French articles and prepositions which seem to pose the biggest challenge.

Hi Sean, 

1. Both 'les' and 'de' is given as acceptable for 'sushis' in the exercise.

2. Do you have any Tiger beer? = Vous avez de la bière Tiger? / Vous avez de la Tiger?

Hope this helps!
