Sushi Bakes and where to find them

If you are missing Japanese food, then this latest craze is for you. Sushi Bakes have been around for a while but they have become extremely popular during the quarantine. They are basically deconstructed sushi. A tin container or casserole has Japanese rice, meat or fish, cheese, special sauce, and other ingredients that vary per shop. Then you eat it by taking a spoonful of good stuff and wrapping a sheet of nori around it. And I assure you the first bite is heaven and it is incredibly addicting!

If you are looking to buy some for yourself, there are several shops that have popped up on social media that you can check out. Here are our High Five recommendations!
