Proud of yourself for finally graduating from the California roll to unagi? Then you might just be ready for another adventurous sushi leap. A Japanese chain is now offering a whole-sardine roll, which actually features an entire fish nestled between your standard rice and seaweed wrap.
According to First We Feast, the roll specifically includes a sardine, a leaf of oba (or Japanese basil), and grated plum. It's available at the Kurazushi chain in honor of Setsubun, a February festival which marks the start of spring. See, traditionally, people buy eho-maki -- those are thick sushi rolls -- during Setsubun and eat them facing whichever point of the compass has been deemed the most auspicious for the year. But they also place a cooked sardine head speared through a sprig of holly (called hiiragi iwashi) in their home to ward off demons, so Kurazushi's weird menu item is actually a blend of the fest's customs. Each one costs 350 yen, which amounts to roughly $3. Don't forget to bring your industrial-strength chopsticks.
