HMMMMMM. What Ya Think?


Sushi doughnuts?!?! It’s the age of the food mashup! The cronut, the sushi burrito and the ramen burger created long lines of eager customers and plenty of buzz online. It was only a matter of time until someone came up with this beautiful concoction: the sushi doughnut.

Fountain Valley’s Project Poke in Orange County, California, created the 4-inch snack that is doughnut only in shape. Putting rice — made with extra vinegar, sugar and salt for optimum stickiness — into doughnut molds, pipe in spicy tuna, avocado or imitation crab filling, add more rice to complete the shape and garnish with sesame seeds, masago, cabbage, cucumber and salmon or tuna (or BOTH!).

What do you think?
