Supermarket sushi

The problem i have with packaged sushi is the rice has a different mouth feel. I believe they put something in to hold the rice together to survive shipment.

At the Publix that offer sushi here, they make it in the store, everyday.

Yep, they're either made in-house or like this (Costco method):

Usually the cream cheese rolls have salmon or lox and are a play on a bagel, shudder. I like the vege rolls with grated carrots, cucumber, avocado, etc. Shrimp or crab tempura rolls are also a great place to start.

I've never once seen a California roll contain cream cheese, but then RF and I live in California. GG, even the link you left doesn't show it with cream cheese. I too think that sounds gross.

I saw a movie last night, East Side Sushi, and it briefly touched on some of these subject matters of what we've been discussing here.

I think that if we Americans didn't think of sushi and something strange and gross we would have no problem with it. I'll try everything. If my first experience isn't good, I'll try it again, prepared differently. Some folks are adventurous,. Others are not.

I say bring on the head cheese, bring on the beef tongue and kidneys, bring on the deep fried chicken gizzards. It's all about how well it's made.

I think the only things that I would not eat are human or dog or cat.
