Utah Sushi Roll

Utah Sushi Roll | Guide | Specialty Rolls

Specialty Rolls: Most sushi restaurants will have a list of specialty rolls that are specific to that restaurant. They are usually determined by the chef and are more unique than a classic roll. While many sushi restaurants might have a 'dragon roll', unlike a classic roll, there is no guarantee that any two restaurants' version of the 'dragon roll' will be the same. Specialty rolls usually have a more complex mix of ingredients and sauces and often times will provide a more interesting range of flavors. Specialty rolls can range in price from $10 to over $20 depending on the roll and the restaurant and are usually served as one long roll that is cut into disks which are eaten individually.
