Sushi Towels Are The Best Way To Dry Off


If you’re in need of the yummiest-looking and most stylish way to dry stuff off, look no further than Sushi Towels.

Whether you’re in the mood for a tuna roll, or want to wipe off the dishes with a Tamago, there’s a handy guide that lets you know how to create each.

Sushi Towels are currently a concept by industrial designer, Jenny Pokryvailo, that’s been submitted to OTOTO. So, hopefully they’ll be a beautiful and absorbent reality soon.



Sushi Snow Globes Exist


Snow globes are great for showing off the places you’ve been and the holidays you love. They’re also good at providing seconds of entertainment… until the novelty of watching floating glitter wears off.

To help make snow globes infinitely more entertaining, artist Eri Nami created Sushi Snow Globes. In place of a plastic NYC skyline or boring winter scene, there’s a submerged piece of raw fish and rice.

The sushi placed in the globes is actually very realistic… they’re just a lot more sparkly.

Whole Fish Sushi Exists


When small intricately-cut pieces of fish in your sushi just won’t do, there’s now a trend of whole-fish sushi going on in Japan.

Referred to as iwashi, the Japanese word for sardine, the sushi roll is being offered by Japanese restaurant chain, Kurazushi, and contains the whole fish wrapped in rice and seaweed, with Japanese basil and grated plum.

Sushi etiquette has yet to include the proper technique for eating a sushi roll with the head and tail intact. Our guess is to flip a coin and dive in.

Babies Can Now Be Rolled Up To Look Like Sushi, Egg Rolls


It’s true that swaddled newborns look just like little burritos, and Burrito swaddling blanket sets only make it more so. Now, babies can get a bit more creative with their swaddling attire.

Bon Vivant Baby, wanting your newborn to be as stylish as possible, has created a new line of food-related blanket sets. The Lil’ Sushi Swaddle Blanket Set will wrap your baby up in seaweed, and a roe and rice hat.

There’s also a Lil’ Egg Roll Swaddling Set, and the aforementioned Burrito. Either way, your baby will be wrapped up tight, looking adorable/delicious.
