Sushi lovers of the world, rejoice! If you’ve ever enjoyed a delectable dish of your favorite sushi rolls that left you wanting more, you are not alone. Umewaka, a restaurant in Japan, is ready and willing to satisfy all your sushi needs with giant sushi rolls that are almost too big to believe. Umewaka serves “Nagoya size” portions of the normally bite-sized treats, which basically means that saying their sushi rolls are huge is an understatement.
Their super-sized Anago eel roll is made up of whole eel filets, costs 33 US dollars and serves 6-8 people. If that sounds gigantic to you, wait until you see their jumbo Futomaki roll. It’s made with 20 different types of fish and seafood, requires a two-meter long bed of rice and seaweed, and weighs 6 kilograms (over 13 pounds!) If the sushi alone is not enough for you and your friends, you can also order equally large portions of octopus, squid, tuna, egg, and Ikura (salmon roe).
Be prepared to order the sushi at least 2 days in advance, and to shell out nearly $200 for the Futomaki roll. Just be sure not to get too caught up in all the sushi goodness – it seems like controlling your portion sizes may be hard to do at Umewaka. The restaurant certainly gives new meaning to the concept of over-indulging!
