Sushi Fusion Restaurant Births ‘Sushi Cereal’ Eaten with ‘Milk’

A fusion Asian restaurant in Mount Dora, FL, created another bizarre take on sushi by turning it into a sushi cereal.

On May 14, Wave Asian Bistro and Sushi shocked the internet with its sushi cereal after posting the bizarre dish combination on its Instagram.

The dish basically contains regular cut sushi rolls that are placed in a bowl, but to make it more “realistic,” the restaurant adds its own version of “milk” into the mix. In its reply, Wave said the sauce used to make this is its savory “signature white sauce and eel sauce,” according to World of Buzz.

Wave Asian Bistro and Sushi, located on 301 N. Baker St., suite 106, is famous for its fusion cuisine that combines Asian food with others, such as the sushi hotdog, sushi tacos, and sushi pizza, to name a few.

Last year, chef and owner Jonathan McKinney gave a behind-the-scenes look at how they create one of their fusion dishes called the sushi crunch wrap. The Sushi Crunchy Wrap is made up of rice, cream cheese, crab, spicy tuna, a fried nori sheet, cucumbers, and avocado, Food Beast reported.


McKinney has been working with sushi since he was just 8 years old. Speaking to Daily Commercial in 2017, the chef shared that he learned all of his techniques in the kitchen from his father.

“I grew up working with my dad, learning all the techniques of Asian cuisine,” he said. “I really wanted to take the traditional and fuse it with modern, taking inspiration from Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese dishes to create my own spin for my restaurant.”
