Sushi rolls gone wild
Long Island’s Japanese restaurants may not serve the world’s most authentic sushi rolls … but they may well serve the craziest.
Bananas! Yes, these rolls are bananas, and there are also bananas in them at Sushi Ko in Merrick. Kobe beef? Mango salsa? Cream cheese? Truffle oil? Slap some rice around it, cut it into sixths and it’s all fair game.
Even a modest roll can get committed through its name. Exhibits A, B and C: Billy What’s Up roll at Show Win in Northport, Invincible Sandwich roll at Arata in Syosset and the immortal Scottish Goat roll at Nisen in Commack.
Check out our gallery of crazy rolls here. And tell us what’s the craziest roll you’ve had on Long Island in the comments section below.
