Here’s proof, that if you allow a food trend to hang around long enough, stuff like Sushi Cupcakes is bound to happen. We only have ourselves to blame.

Brought to us by Mosogourmet, the ‘cupcakes’ are made by forming raw fish and rice into temarizushi (sushi balls).

The best part, if there needs to be one, is that the cupcake wrapper is edible nori. Actually, this look kinda awesome. Want.

Peanut butter and jelly is cool and all, but the duo is no longer the ultimate food pairing. This is because something called the Sushirrito exists, and it’s not only the greatest food merger ever, but it could also be the best thing to ever exist.

Brought to us by the San Francisco-based Sushirrito, the restaurant chain combines the awesomeness of raw fish and rice, with the compact convenience of a yummy burrito.

Patrons of the fast casual restaurant can expect fantastic Asian/Latin fusion, such as Yellowtail Satori, Salmon Samba, Sumo Crunch and the Porkivore.
