Instructions:
  • Detailed instructions provided in each Global Grub Sushi Kit
  • And if you're a visual person, like me, check out this video tutorial:
  • Special tips:
    • Don’t use too much fillings or you’ll have trouble with assembling/keeping the roll together
    • When rolling, be sure to adjust the mat as you go (so that the mat doesn’t become a part of the roll)
Sushi Roulette Game:

Spice up the night! One player will be the lucky recipient of a wasabi-loaded roll.  

  • How to play:
    • Using any sushi roll you prefer, cut into 6 or 8 pieces and choose one sushi chef to hid as much wasabi as you dare in the middle or bottom of the roll
    • Place pieces onto a plate, wasabi side down
    • Give the plate a spin and take turns selecting and eating a piece
  • Rules:
    • Players must choose a piece and put the entire roll in your mouth
    • No inspecting the bottom of the roll!
