Mexican Sushi: A Trend We Hope Doesn't Stick | Phoenix New Times

Nothing like deep fried cream cheese (and other stuff) in sushi. Man, almost every one of those sounded gross to me.

Guy Fieri had/has a restaurant called Tex Wasabi's in Northern California. Not everything was great, but I did enjoy quite a bit of the menu, and dishes described in the article remind me a lot of what was served there. It was pretty rich fare. Not like sushi at all, but delicious and satisfying in its own way.

"We ordered the firecracker jalapeño appetizer. It wasn't spicy, as one might expect from a jalapeño dish. It was heavy with cream, both in the crab mix stuffed inside the jalapeños and the in cream on top. The sauce on the side gave the flavor a bit more depth.


"Almost all the rolls featured cream cheese inside them, and the carne asada roll -- breaded and deep-fried and stuffed with carne asada, tomato, jalapeño, onion, cilantro and cream cheese -- just didn't feel right. Hot, deep-fried cream cheese did not leave us wanting to finish it. On the upside, the meat was well seasoned and juicy."

The "firecracker jalapeño appetizer" sounds good; I'd certainly try some. The other might be good as well, but I know it would be better if the beef were replaced with ham or salami and the cream cheese were mixed with smoked salmon, crab, tuna, or lobster. I would definitely take out the tomato and onion and probably the cilantro and jalapeño. Cream cheese wrapped in salami and deep-fried is a winner.

Wrap a piece of ham around a raw oyster and then deep-fry it. Try it both breaded and unbreaded.

Mixing cuisines is fun.

The great Texas grocery chain H-E-B has sushi departments in most of their stores (HEB Sushiya), & they make various sushi rolls that often have a Tex-Mex touch. Like slices of raw jalapeño, or avocado & cream cheese. One of their most popular ones (they call it a "firecracker" roll), is topped with what appears to be crushed Flaming Hot Cheetos . No, it's not traditional sushi. It just is what it is. And it's actually pretty damned tasty!

I love Mexican food (one of my favorites, in fact) and I also love sushi, but the two are better off not being mixed. With all respect, what's the world coming to?

I'd try them once and if they tasted good buy them again.

Just because its not "traditional" doesn't mean it doesn't taste good.

That seems pretty horrendous. I could conceivably see decent "Mexican sushi" being made with some restraint, using things like cilantro, chiles, or even something like pico de gallo - but that stuff looks awful.

They shouldn't call it sushi. My stomach rejects the idea of greasy sushi. Cream cheese, no, deep fried even more just no.
