Some great veggie rolls at Sushi Express

 

I saw a number of new rolls that I’ve never tried and wanted to have a bit of adventure today.

I tried the Horenso which is a spinach roll, Natto with fermented soybeans and a Ume Kyu roll with pickled plums and cucumber.

Ume Kyu Roll

Ume Kyu Roll

 

Ume Kyu Roll
pickled plum and cucumber
Category: Standard Roll
Level: Beginner

Description:  The Ume Kyu roll is a wonderful roll. It has a very unique flavor.  Like a pop-rocks sushi roll.  The pickled plum has a sparkling sweetness to it.  Combine that with the tasty cucumber and it’s a nice tasting simple roll for vegetarian and beginners alike.

Natto Roll

Natto Roll

 

Natto Roll
fermented soybeans, rice
Category: Standard Roll
Level: Beginner

Description:  The Natto roll is a nice roll.  The flavor isn’t really strong but packs a lot of protein from the soy.  Good veggie or beginner roll.

Horenso Roll

Horenso Roll
spinach, rice
Category: Standard Roll
Level: Beginner

Description:  The Horenso is an interesting roll.  You already have green veggie with most the nori or seaweed in most standard rolls but adding a bit of spinach still gives it a different taste.  Not a very strong taste but a pleasant roll if you like spinach.  It’s a great vegetarian sushi roll and is good for a beginner.  Add a little soy and wasabi to spice it up!

Ute Roll

Big Sumo Roll

Category: Specialty Roll
Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Description: The Big Sumo Roll isn’t the biggest roll I’ve had but it is a nice sized roll.  It had some great flavors with the tempura shrimp, fresh shrimp, spicy crab and avocado.

New York Roll

New York Roll
Tempura shrimp, seaweed salad, salmon and red and black tobiko

Category: Specialty Roll
Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Description: The New York Roll is tasty and refreshing.  The lemon is a bit overpowering, so if your an intermediate this is a good roll for you.  You do get some of the other flavors but the lemon is very strong.  Paired with the crunchy shrimp and seaweed this is a great tasting roll.
