Sushi is an extremely popular food that many people enjoy, and the world’s longest sushi roll indulges these individuals to the extreme. It may be breaking Guinness World Records, but now the true challenge will be not to waste this mammoth of a meal.

A Japanese restaurant in the city of Yekaterinburg, Russia, was determined to make the world’s longest sushi roll and they were successful in accomplishing that goal. Created in the shopping center aptly named ΜΕΓΑ, this endless snaking sushi roll spans an impressive 2.5 kilometers (1.55 mile) long. It took 60 chefs to craft 1.5 tons of rice, 500 kg of cucumbers, 14 thousand pieces of seaweed and 25 kg of sesame into edible sushi rolls.
