7 Non-Mainstream Sushi Rolls To Try In Singapore – Itadakimasu!

Mad Nest Oishii Maki

Sushi Rolls are a prominent dish in most Japanese eateries or restaurants, or what we otherwise know as ‘maki’. These delightful rolls comprise amalgamations of flavours that can never go wrong, and the combinations are endless.

What we love about sushi rolls is the palatable fillings and toppings, often drenched with sauces that are absolutely addictive.

Without further ado, here we share with you 7 Creative Sushi Rolls That Taste As Good As They Look.

Rollie Olie Bollywood Sushi


Rollie Olie serves up speciality sushi rolls which includes interesting fusion flavours. The Bollywood (S$14.95) features curry prawns and avocados cushioned in tasty sushi rice, topped with the most amazing tempura crunch and curry mayonnaise – proving that both Indian and Japanese flavours can triumph together.

Hotate Mentai Maki Kinsa Sushi


Kinsa Sushi’s maki rolls are prepared using healthy purple rice – a good switch from your regular sushi white rice with its distinct nutty textures.

Wasabi-infused tobikko are then added atop the maki for a gorgeous finishing touch. What’s not to love about this?
