Kura Corporation - Traumatic Caramel Banana Sushi
The Japanese reasonably priced rotating Sushi chain, Kura Corportation, known as Kura Zushi in Japan, just unveiled 2 new questionable sushi dishes: Caramel Banana Sushi and Caramel Corn Mayo.
They were created as a collaboration project between Kura Corporation and the Japanese major confectionery company, Morinaga & Company. They're going to be available for a limited time until July 17.
Just looking at them, made me reject the idea of eating them immediately. Sliced banana with caramel sauce or corn mixed with caramel and mayonnaise on top of vinegary rice? Seriously?!
According to Kura Corporation, people can enjoy Caramel Banana Sushi as a dessert, and Caramel Corn Mayo could be popular among kids. The savory and sweet combination is addictive.
Wait a minute! Don't we regularly complain how bad the Japanese food served overseas is? Weren't we very excited to share with the world what the real "Washoku" (Japanese food) was when we it was registered as an intangible cultural heritage?
Well, probably these new dishes will be more accepted by people from other countries who are more open-minded about sushi...
