“Futomaki (Thick roll)”  Trial Lesson Tokyo Sushi Academy Singapore

“Futomaki (Thick roll)”  Trial Lesson

futomaki trial class
Let’s make traditional thick roll. “Futomaki”.
Do you know that different regions in Japan have different preferences for sushi types?

Generally, the “roll sushi” is more popular in the Western region (Osaka area) than the Eastern region (Tokyo area).

Nigiri sushi is popular in Tokyo area. It is also known as known as Edomae sushi and “Edo” is actually the old name for Tokyo.
In Western Japan, “Norimaki” (sushi rolled with seaweed) is more popular.

One of “norimaki” (sushi rolled with seaweed) is “Futomaki”(Thick roll).
The ingredients are Egg omelette, Kampyo, mushrooms, oboro(fish flake), Kamaboko(fish cake) and vegetable(cucumber or spinach)  etc.
The ingredients harmony is so tasty!!!
Please try it!

The diameter for futomaki sushi is larger and hence it takes a lot skill to roll the sushi while making sure that the filling stay inside. In Japan, especially in the Kansai region, futomaki is eaten during Setsubun (the day before spring) as a ritual.

For this class, there will be demonstration by the instructor and hands-on practice. All ingredients and equipment will be provided. Participants will get to make 3 rolls of sushi and bring home the sushi rolls they made during the class.

This is a trial class, special fee $58.

Avocado Salmon sushi roll and Philadelphia sushi roll

Avocado Salmon sushi roll and Philadelphia sushi roll

Modern Japanese-American style healthy sushi rolls such as Avocado Salmon sushi roll and Philadelphia Sushi roll, are becoming very popular outside of the United States and in Singapore, and can also be made easily at home with a few ingredients and a basic set of inexpensive sushi-making


Avocado Salmon sushi rolls, where fresh avocado slices are wrapped over the top of a sushi roll filled with raw salmon and cucumber, were invented by a Japanese chef living in Los Angeles around 40 years ago.

Avocado was used for its melt- in-the-mouth texture, which resembles that of tuna (toro).


Philadelphia Sushi roll, also known as ‘inside-out’ roll, has nori (seaweed) wrapped around the fillings and rice facing outwards.

It was an innovation by a Japanese chef living in Little Tokyo in America, as American customers were not used to seeing nori wrapped around food but enjoyed the taste.

It uses cream cheese (Philadelphia cream cheese) as well as fresh salmon and the rice is coated generously with sesame seeds outside.

Roll sushi class

Learn proper sushi-making techniques from professional Japanese chef-instructors.

All ingredients and equipment provided.
