We love to eat. We love to discover and experience new foods and flavours. To do this, we constantly create new food mashups, like churro ice cream sandwiches or even mac and cheese meatball sandwiches. However, the newest food trend mashup comes with a Japanese twist.
Sushi burgers are a Japanese take on an American comfort food; the latest food trend mashup to take over Instagram. First originating in Japan, and still seen on the menu of Japanese fast food chain MOS Burger, it’s now making the rounds on the internet with different variations you can easily recreated at home.
🍙 VEGAN SUSHI BURGER 🍙 Loaded with Teriyaki Shredded "Chicken"(not real chicken, the secret ingredient: jackfruit!), avocado, pickled ginger, vegan mayo & red cabbage. This is dedicated to my beautiful sushi loving friend Kim, @brusselsvegan (a.k.a @bestofvegan) in honour of all you do for the vegan community. The recipe for this wee creation will be in the comments! 💃💃 **note: use a fork or chopsticks to eat it! This burger is just for fun! It can be messy to eat, so if you aren't up for the challenge simply enjoy this as a sushi bowl or a rice ball. Namaste. #bestofveganburger
They’re usually made of sushi rice, formed in the shape of burger buns. They’re then packed with ingredients like raw fish, fried soft-shell crab, or American-styled favourites, like fried chicken or beef patties. The sushi burgers are then topped with things like avocado, spicy mayonnaise, pickled ginger, and red cabbage.
As you can see, they make for a photogenic dish. Would you like to try one?
