Tuna & Salmon Sushi


from Costco

at home

-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-


Unfortunately, I regret that the enormity of these rolls may not be adequately conveyed by the photo, even with the chopsticks that I’d included to provide scale. Each roll was so big that I couldn’t wrap my fingers completely around it, so big that it had to be eaten in at least two bites. Particularly amazing were the tuna rolls, which featured whole cubes of tuna; by contrast, the salmon rolls were made of salmon slices packed together. It was a strange sensation, a new sensation, biting down on such a large chunk of raw fish, reminding me somewhat of the “too much of a good thing” adage that I’d discussed in my post on the McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese a couple days ago. I wonder if the size of the rolls was a conscious design choice on the part of Costco, the person in charge of developing their ready-to-eat meals: “We’re Costco–we don’t do anything small.”
