We saw the trend of colourful sushi doughnuts in the US blow up on Instagram a few months ago, and now, KLites can finally have a taste of the holey creation at Mont Kiara’s The Fat Fish.
Before you start imagining slices of sashimi on a ring of deep-fried dough, donut worry about that bizarre-sounding combination. Instead, sushi doughnuts are essentially traditional rolls of sushi with the usual ingredients, save for its more fun doughnut shape.
The Fat Fish’s creation consists of sushi rice filled with a small amount of tuna mayo, and is then topped with three types of sashimi (salmon, butterfish and tuna), slivers of cucumber and pickled daikon radish. Liberal sprinkles of sesame seeds, seaweed and ebiko pull everything together, and voila! You have a sushi doughnut.
Since you can’t eat this the same way you do with a regular doughnut (it would end up a mess, what with rice and sashimi escaping your grasp), use chopsticks or a fork for a neater meal. However you eat it, you’ll still adough these rings of rice.
