No. 27: Futomaki Roll From Sushi 1
They say futomaki means "fat rolls" in Japanese, but more accurate for this roll would be "throw everything in it." It's got crab, fish eggs, seaweed salad, a spear of omelet, and Japanese sweet pickles. The Sushi One variety, like most, is so damn fat that it's near impossible to take it in one bite. Tip: Pick it up with your fingers and bite it across the middle as you pinch the sides closed. It'll prevent this extremely fat roll from ending up in your lap. And with a roll this stuffed with fine ingredients, you really want it in your mouth -- once you figure out how to actually take a bite.
