List Rules The very best sushi rolls only. Sorry, no sashimi.

How do you roll? This extensive list of sushi rolls contains the most popular "Westernized" varieties of the Japanese delight (i.e. Texas rolls are not from Japan). Naturally, we're bound to have missed a few (there are so, so many!), but here you'll find a boatload of bite-size morsels - from the common California roll to the more obscure (yet to-die-for delicious) Bath Street roll. And if your favorite isn't already included, add it below for a truly comprehensive list.

Sushi is a Japanese food consisting of cooked  rice, layered and rolled up with amazingly delicious (and sometimes zany) ingredients like seafood, vegetables, and even tropical fruits. Ingredients and forms of sushi presentation vary widely, but all sushi "rolls" contain rice - whether white or brown. And in this list, we're strictly rolling with rolls. Sorry, sashimi!


So get busy and s
ound off on the most delicious sushi rolls. Or, vote down the rolls you deem inedible. As the lyrics of the lesser-known 69 Boyz' jam say, "sushee roll, Teriyaki, sweet with roe, let us eat your sushi roll!"
