My favorite sushi restaurant has over 100 Sushi Rolls on their menu! I’m going to set out to try every single one of them. Hey wait! I thought there were only 100 sushi rolls! What’s up with #128? Actually the menu can only hold 100 selections and Futomaki is such a stable in all sushi restaurants – they couldn’t leave it out.
Futomaki is Japanese for “thick, large or fat rolls”. Seaweed on the outside and typically over 2 – 2 1/2″ in diameter. The filings are chosen for their complementary tastes and colors. This version is vegetarian with cucumber, gourd and strips of omelette. This is a perfect sushi roll to order when you have other choices already selected and just have no idea what else to get. This roll fills the bill everytime.
