Japanese have all the food art fun – Tank Sushi
I know I could easily fill an entire blog with just quirky bento boxes and another of creative sushi creations. I can barely keep up with getting posts up regularly for this one, though, so you’re stuck with seeing an overwhelming amount of Asian dishes around here sometimes.
These sushi tanks are actually inspired by a Japanese anime series, Gurls und Panzer (Panzer is German for ‘tank’). I wish I knew how much these cost, but I can’t seem to get any additional information about these than what I just told you.
Blue pork sushi – When toothpicks go bad
I first posted about these delicious little pork rolls more than 2 years ago and since then, I’ve made them several times. They’re quick, taste good, and are great for using in lunches the next day.
It’s not uncommon for me to use colored toothpicks and you can see that all of them here even have multicolored sticks:
It wasn’t until the last time I made them, though, with a different brand of toothpicks, that I ran into issues. Check out these:
Sushi caterpillar roll
While the finished sushi caterpillar is pretty impressive, I think the most impressive part for me is actually the first 30 seconds of the video. It’s incredible that he’s able to slice the avocado, not only that thin, but also consistently that thin. I imagine it takes an avocado that’s at the perfect ripeness/firmness and an incredible sharp knife to prevent it from squishing too much.
