Sushi Burgers Are the Next Big Culinary Mash-Up

If you've ever been torn over whether to grab a burger or sushi for lunch, this new food trend, reported by My Modern Met, might be your dream solution. In the style of culinary hybrids likes cronuts and ramen pizza, sushi burgers combine two classic dishes to make a meal greater than the sum of its parts.

The sushi burger can be made with any of the typical ingredients found in a sushi roll. Any combination of salmon, crab, tuna, avocado, or cucumber can be substituted for a traditional beef patty, but there's one component of the sushi burger that always remains the same. Instead of wheat buns, the sandwich is served on two cakes of sticky rice that can either be served as they are or crisped up on a griddle. And just like the two foods that inspired it, a sushi burger is best topped with sesame seeds.

A few restaurants already serve their own versions of the burgers, like Roppongi Asian Tapas Bar & Sushi in Santa Monica, California and Shibuya in Venezuela. In Melbourne, Australia, one restaurant is entirely devoted to the sushi burger concept. You can check out some examples of the fusion masterpiece below.

After a bit of controversy over its way of aggregating news feeds and some questionable content censoring policies, it’s nice to have Facebook roll out a feature everyone can agree on: allowing you to order food without leaving the social media site.

According to a press release, Facebook says that the company decided to begin offering food delivery options after realizing that many of its users come to the social media hub to rate and discuss local eateries. Rather than hop from Facebook to the restaurant or a delivery service, you’ll be able to stay within the app and select from a menu of food choices. Just click “Order Food” from the Explore menu on a desktop interface or under the “More” option on Android or iOS devices. There, you’ll be presented with options that will accept takeout or delivery orders, as well as businesses participating with services like Delivery.com or EatStreet.

If you need to sign up and create an account with Delivery.com or Jimmy John’s, for example, you can do that without leaving Facebook. The feature is expected to be available nationally, effective immediately.
