Breaking Food News Thanks To NBC Chicago!
I love food trends: they can be serious, they can be goofy, but I always love new trends that take off and become culinary sensations…and here is the latest!
That’s right – these are amazing “sushi donuts” – sushi rice pressed into a donut mold, then topped with lots of fresh fish and sauces!
Here is the reporting from NBC Chicago:
“Add Chicago to the list of cities where fans can indulge in the latest sushi donut craze.
Simply Thalia has become the city’s first restaurant to serve up the viral foodie favorite.
The local sushi stop, located inside Block 37 Mall at 108 N. State St., began serving the new item last month, with fans eating up the fishy find.
“I’m always looking for something, a new concept,” said owner Fritz ColCol.
He is aware that another restaurant on the west coast was making sushi donuts already, but his are different, according to the article.

A restaurant in Southern California holds the title as the originator of the Sushi Donut.
Project Poke in Orange County, CA came up with the idea of stuffing rings of rice with avocado or spicy tuna and then adding masago, cabbage, cucumber, and loads of fresh fish.

Bravo to Project Poke for this amazing creation, and kudos to Trulia for taking it to a whole new level! And speaking of unique food mashups:
