It's the ultimate 'East meets West' fusion food.
When you really think about it, the sushi-burger combo seemed inevitable given Australia's obsession with Japanese cuisine and American-style burgers.
The dish involves making 'buns' of rice, and filling it with your meat, fish or veg of choice, slathered in a delicious sauce.
For example, see this incredible creation by food blogger "So Beautifully Raw". "Loaded with Teriyaki Shredded 'Chicken'(not real chicken, the secret ingredient: jackfruit!), avocado, pickled ginger, vegan mayo & red cabbage." Um, YUM!
?? VEGAN SUSHI BURGER ?? Loaded with Teriyaki Shredded "Chicken"(not real chicken, the secret ingredient: jackfruit!), avocado, pickled ginger, vegan mayo & red cabbage. This is dedicated to my beautiful sushi loving friend Kim, @brusselsvegan (a.k.a @bestofvegan) in honour of all you do for the vegan community. The recipe for this wee creation will be in the comments! ???? #bestofveganburger **note: use a fork or chopsticks to eat it! This burger is just for fun! It can be messy to eat, so if you aren't up for the challenge simply enjoy this as a sushi bowl or a rice ball. Namaste.
So far, not many joints Down Under are offering the next big craze - but sources say it's about to erupt.
But take a look at some of these other fantastic creations from around the world.
