In Search of the Perfect Sushi Roll

Sushi is an art form that has been passed down for many generations. What sets the best sushi restaurants apart from the rest is a combination of quality ingredients, creativity in presentation, and traditional cooking methods. The restaurant Baden-Baden in Seattle is one such example.

##A fusion of quality, creativity, sushi tradition. The restaurant Baden Baden in Seattle combines all three elements to create some of the best tasting sushi you’ll find anywhere. Chef Manuel Torres, a graduate of El Bulli School in Spain, oversees this Japanese gem. You won’t find your standard California or Philadelphia rolls on his menu because he uses fresh seafood like Spanish mackerel and Japanese jack mackerel flown straight from Tokyo to create seasonal creations with innovative flavor combinations like guacamole roe or cucumber wasabi shiso drizzled with ginger vinegar sauce.

What Makes Japanese Sushi Special?

Japanese sushi is not just your typical Americanized California Roll or Eel Sauce. It’s part of a rich tradition that combines quality ingredients with creativity to form a singular dish.

At Restaurant Baden-Baden in Los Angeles, the omakase menu offers a complete meal with an appetizer, sashimi appetizer plate, nigiri (rice ball), hand roll/maki (seaweed wrap), and dessert.

Restaurant Baden-Baden has been serving up traditional Japanese food since 1978. The restaurant brings in fresh fish every day from all over the world for customers to enjoy at lunch and dinner service.

When Was It Invented?

Sushi has been around for centuries. The first known record of sushi being served was in the 8th century when Japanese Buddhist monks would serve rice covered in seaweed as a way to preserve their food. In the 19th century, sushi chefs began adding raw fish to the dish because it was easy to store without refrigeration. With its rise in popularity came new innovations such as California rolls with avocado, masago, mayonnaise and cucumber or Philadelphia rolls with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

Introduction to Maki Sushi

Maki sushi (or roll sushi) is a type of sushi that can include any ingredients wrapped in a thin sheet of dried seaweed. It takes its name from the Japanese word makizushi which means to roll. It is also called sushi-go-round because it was traditionally shaped by hand on a circular bamboo mat called a makisu. Maki is one of the most popular types of sushi in Japan. There are two main styles of maki sushi rolls: futomaki and hosomaki. Futomaki is wider than hosomaki, with more filling inside each roll; hosomaki have less filling than futomaki but are usually longer and narrower. Each style of rolls can be made using either a single or double layer of nori as the wrapper for the rice and other ingredients. Hoso style for example uses only a single layer while futomo style wraps things up with two layers, allowing it to hold more fillings inside. In some parts of Japan like Osaka they use soba noodles or tempura instead of seaweed when wrapping the rice up into a roll

Innovation and Different Styles of Presentation

One of the most popular trends in sushi is fusion sushi. Fusion sushi combines two or more styles of sushi to create a new style. The best-known example is the California roll, which combines crab meat with avocado and cucumber. Other examples are Philadelphia roll (salmon with cream cheese), New York roll (smoked salmon with cucumber), and Boston roll (shrimp tempura, lettuce). Another trend is to serve one type of fish atop another type. A good example is the rainbow delight – this consists of half a tuna, half a salmon fillet, ikura roe, tamgo, avocado and masago on top.
