But Why?: A Gigantic, 1-Foot Diameter Sushi Roll

November 22, 2016


This is the gigantic sushi roll prepared by the chefs at the Sushi Chef Institute in Torrence, California. It measures about a foot in diameter and required a samurai sword to cut. I bet that was so flavorful. Where's a competitive eater when you need one? I bet Matt Stonie could have laid waste to that thing. Or puked trying. Me? I'm good for about twenty regular sized sushi roll pieces before I start feeling ooky. I dunno, sometimes raw fish and I don't get along that great. "You buttchugged four bottles of sake and a miso soup." Everybody's got their sushi rituals.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Davey, who prefers his sushi rolls much smaller and with way more wasabi.

    Maybe eating the entire thing, you won't be hungry again half an hour later?

    WTF??? Noooo, they were supposed to cut it the other way and get a single slice.

    Well since they screwed that up big time, I might aswell be my usual pedant and go on with everything that is wrong with this sushi roll :
    - they layered the rice unevenly (even if you consider letting gaps for the nori to stick together
    - the rice layer is way too thick
    - the meat and ingredients are haphazardly put on the rice and more than half the time do not reach both end of the nori which creates lumps along the way
    - they used long grain rice instead of the smaller grain
    - the finished products looks like one of my 5 yo niece's drawing

    How does such a poor products come from an friggin' institute? WTH?

    I know right! It's not even tight, and they didn't even leave some parts of the seaweed free so it'll stay together, like, WOW

  • The_Wretched

    I fully agree with you but would probably still eat.

  • TheQiwiMan

    That's dumb. Half of Sushi rolling is the look/feel. That looks like someone took a dump in a sleeping bag then rolled it up.
