Is there a right way to eat fat sushi rolls?
Ate sushi a few days ago and ordered a roll called a “fat samarai” not knowing it was going to be huge (I thought the ingredients made it fat, not the dimensions, silly Funk). The roll came out and it is five slices about three inches across and almost an inch thick. I’ve had large rolls before, this was much bigger.
This woman (short YouTube video) is kind enough to demonstrate my initial technique, the roll was a little larger than that, and I was slightly less graceful. When that didn’t work I just crammed each slice in my mouth whole. It was tasty, but a mouthful. I thought it was a worthy challenge, and my wife is used to me by now, but this probably wouldn’t be the perfect solution with a mixed group. I can’t see a Japanese Prime Minister throwing down quite like that.
I asked the waitress if there was a third option and she was generally unamused and said “People ask all the time, I just work here”... I asked if I could just get it as a burrito next time and she gave me a half smile and said she’d ask. Sorry to bother you lady.
So sushi loving Jellies (cannibals?), is there a “right” way to eat the fat sushi roll?
