What does YOUR city's sushi roll consist of? What are some other interesting sushi rolls named after a place?

Many localities have their own sushi rolls. For example, in Tampa there's the "Tampa Roll", which consists of fried grouper, onions, and mayo. At a Tampa restaurant I often ate at there was also a "Kentucky Roll", which had fried chicken in it.

I don't think any of the three sushi places around here have a "Duluth" roll, but one restaurant has a "Burning Tree Roll", named after the strip mall in which it is located. This particular strip mall is also home to a dollar store, shipping and packing goods depot, TJ Maxx, blood donation center, and used clothes store - not the ritziest place (in its defense, it has long been anchored by a Best Buy, which plans on moving). Nevertheless, the roll sells for $10.95 and has deep-fried crab meat, avocado, and three kinds of sauces as its ingredients.

Mine is the Philadelphia Roll, which has Philadelphia cream cheese, fresh cucumber, and salmon. I have seen some places put avocado in instead of cucumber. It's still delicious

i went to a local japanese restaurant and they had a handful of local type of rolls. i think its cute but im not sure what makes them relate to the location. its the town i grew up in, so not my current town but not far. the next one is also close by me.

Marlboro Roll - Shrimp Tempura, Crabmeat, Cucumber

Red Bank Roll - Cucumber, Crabmeat, Shrimp Tempura, Spicy Salmon, Crispy Crumbs

i see they have several of the same ingredients. i guess that makes sense since they are close to each other geographically but red bank is a little more interesting.
