    Could you please um... be more specific?

    Are you talking about Tempura... which is a pretty specific dish, but NOT sushi.

    Or some sort of Americanized uramaki or "roll" that contains tempura?

    probably a roll with tempura shrimp in it.

    sweet potato tempura also tastes good in a roll.

    BTW a nice big bowl of Chirashi or a full Omakase is about 592,502,113 times better than any sushi roll.

    Not necessarily. The Frying Fish in Little Tokyo is well-known by my stomach for their Las Vegas roll: an entire California roll dipped in tempura, sliced, and then covered in sweet eel sauce.

    Yep, I've had them. Deep fried sushi.. some of them are wrapped in seaweed. Personally, i'm not a fan of fried food. I like my sushi raw.[​IMG]

    lol... I love this thread. All I have to say is that the Burger King Croissanwich is totally the most delicious French food I've ever eaten! Who else loves French food?

    Oh, and Italian food! MMM MMM.

    Fried Macaroni e Formaggio, just like Nonna used to make.

    Whoa... when did you go back to Renton Motorcycle's cafe? Or did you find some other fine dining establishment that serves fried mac & cheese bites?

    Ok I admit it, I love fried sushi rolls. Who cares about being "authentic", whats good is good. I love all sushi sashimi, nigiri, etc.

    I agree, I find American cheese, especially Velveeta, to be much more palatable than its european counterparts. I bet those troglodites still use real animal milk! How barbaric!

    How can you claim to "love" sushi in one breath, and then advocate its being battered and deep fried? This seems counterintuitive. Being tempura battered and fried RUINS sushi.

    I can't explain it, but it is good. I dont really see it as "sushi" per say, it is like a tempura appetizer.

    Is it not possible to like a cheeseburger and a fine french filet? They are different tastes that satisfy different appetites. Just because something is americanized, doesn't mean it is somehow barbaric.

    I don't think I am ever going to recover from this thread.

    Tempura battered sushi?
    Deep fried macaroni and cheese?



    To think that Iwalk this planet every day and did not know of the existence of either of these things has shaken my entire being to the core.

    The DFM&C is really good, if disgusting. It's not much more disgusting than those mozzerella stick things, though. Great for after a couple pitchers.

    A good source of sugar?

    Are people really lacking in sugar these days?

    sweet potato tempura also tastes good in a roll.
    Yam tempura in maki and dynamite rolls (shrimp tempura) are big in Vancouver. As everyone knows, Vancouverites eat more sushi than the Japanese or anyone else, so their opinion holds the most weight. (The best part is that the Caribbeans et al will tell you it's not actually yam but sweet potato, but it doesn't matter what they think either.)

    I had the idea to do this over two years ago...at the time I didn't know it was already being done - I had only been exposed to nigiri, sashimi, and other "non battered and fried" sushi styles...

    It was messy, but fun:

    I know its not proper Japanese, but I mean rolls with (prawns or soft shell crab) tempura inside, not fried sushi!

    Yes, but when you say "cheeseburger", people don't say, "Oh! l love all German food! I like Spaetzle, Knoedel, and Schwenker... so good!

    When you say, tempura sushi, and half a dozen people say "Oooh I love Japanese food!" It irritates me, because in no way, is tempura sushi Japanese.
