What is Futomaki Sushi?

Many of the sushi rolls you eat are likely futomaki. This Japanese term, which translates directly to “fat roll”, describes sushi rolls that are larger than the more conventional varieties. Such rolls are generally about two inches in diameter, and contain more than one key ingredient wrapped up in sushi rice and nori. Such sushi is a big part of American style sushi, with many states and cities coming up with their own signature rolls.

At our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood, you can find many delicious examples of futomaki. These include the classic California roll, the Seattle roll, the spider roll, and our own Lynnwood roll, made with shrimp, avocado, and cucumber. Come in to indulge in your favorites tonight!
