Ice Cream Sushi Pairs Vanilla with Seaweed

Just when you think you've tried every kind of sushi there is, along comes ice cream sushi. This sweet roll was spotted in Uokura, a sushi chain located in the southern portion of Japan. The roll comes in both green tea and vanilla flavors and sells for about $1.60 a plate.

Although it may seem odd, ice cream sushi has apparently been in Japan for a few years. Reactions vary from person to person, which seems about right considering the fact that ice cream and seaweed aren't normally paired together. In addition to Uokura, a small sushi restaurant in the Mie Prefecture is said to also offer ice cream sushi. With the amount of strange food sold in the U.S. it could only be a matter of time before ice cream sushi makes it across the Pacific. Stats for Fishy Desert Dishes Trending: Older & Mild
