Bagel + Sushi? An Unexpected Match
We love bagels. We love sushi. Who doesn’t? So when we heard that Uma Temakeria, the inventor of the sushi burrito, is creating — for a limited time only — a BAGEL-inspired temaki (hand) roll, we kvelled.
Chef Chris Jaeckle of Uma Temakeria will be incorporating beet-cured smoked salmon from Black Seed Bagels into a sushi roll that includes miso cream cheese, cucumbers, pickled scallions and housemade “everything” seasoning. It has the essence of a bagel with a heavy Japanese accent.
This bagel-inspired sushi roll will be available from Wednesday, March 8 through Sunday, April 9 at both Uma Temakeria locations. The combo will not only be available as a hand roll (for $7), it will also come in the form of Uma Temakeria’s famous sushi burrito (for $12.50). Sushi, a burrito, AND a bagel? What a shidduch! It’s like we’ve died and gone to foodie fusion heaven.
