Japanese Restaurant Unleashes 3-Pound, 6,000-Calorie Sushi Pizza

A Japanese restaurant has just released a limited-time ehomaki (luxury sushi roll) that is definitely not what you would expect – it has pizza as a topping. 

This ehomaki, called Akuma no Ehomaki or “Devil’s Ehomaki,” is being served at the restaurant chain Amataro and is only available from now until February 4, according to SoraNews24.

Typically, a serving of ehomaki consists of ordinary sushi ingredients, but topped with premium main ingredients like sashimi or shellfish. The Devil’s Ehomaki, however, is as monstrous as its name implies; it’s measured at 50 centimeters (19.7-inch) and weighs at 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds).

It is made up of Yakiniku beef short rib meat, mayonnaise, egg, sausage, and pizza for the topping, and a garlic rice wrapped in seaweed with deep-fried pork fillet cutlet inside for the ehomaki. All in all, the whole order contains 6,000 calories that is said to be equivalent to three days’ worth of calories for an average Japanese adult, SoraNews24 reported.

With this crazy high amount of calories, it’s impossible for a single person to eat the whole order, but luckily, Amataro is an izakaya (Japanese pub), as said in the report. This means that a single order of the Devil’s Ehomaki, which comes at a price of 3,990 yen ($36), can be shared by a group.

Those who’d like to give this one a try can do so at Amataro’s branch in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Osaka, and Hyogo Prefectures (with the exception of the Yokohama Nishiguchi branch).
