Kappa Sushi Salmon Roe WrappingThis is the second in a series of Kappa Sushi's popular items available only at eat-in restaurants for 110 yen, following the first "Sea Urchin Wrapping" sold from July 8 to 19.
Kappa Sushi's salmon roe has its own quality standards set by its buyers, and is characterized by its strong grain and full of flavor. In recent years, the price of salmon roe has been on the rise due to fluctuating catches of trout, the parent fish, and increased demand.
The rich and juicy texture of the salmon roe and its rich flavor, combined with the crispy nori seaweed, are presented as a must-try bite. The rice is made from "Haenuki" brand rice produced in Yamagata Prefecture, and each grain is said to be firm, with a hint of sweetness and just the right amount of elasticity. Rice vinegar, five-grain vinegar, and brewed vinegar are mixed together, and twice as much rice vinegar is used to give it depth. Eastern Japan has a clean and crisp aftertaste, while Western Japan has a full-bodied taste with the flavor of kelp dashi and moderate sweetness.
