Your Thanksgiving Feast in Sushi Form
We’ve got nothing against turkey.
Mashed potatoes, stuffing: fine, fine things.
We just wish they were a little less… traditional. And a little more… seaweed-y.
Introducing the Thanksgiving Sushi Roll
, an all-encompassing bundle of everything the season has to
offer, available off the menu at Wazuzu next Thursday.
It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: all the elements of your standard Turkey Day spread, wrapped
inside a humble roll of sushi.
The magic starts with the building blocks of any good roll: a bed of rice and a nori wrap. Then, one after
another, chef Jet Tila piles on the essentials—roast turkey, gravy, stuffing… and, okay, some
non-essentials like butter lettuce, asparagus and daikon sprouts. Then he rolls the whole glorious stack
into a huge bundle and slices it up over mashed potatoes and even more stuffing. In short, everything but
the pumpkin pie—which, now that we think of it…
Of course, a dish like this is too awe-inspiring to leave out in plain sight (or on the menu), so you’ll
have to ask for it by name—preferably as quietly as possible.
The pilgrims would have wanted it this way.
