We’ve always thought that all foods could benefit from being a little bit more like sushi … and now our dreams are becoming a reality.

The trend of sushi-fying foods like burritos, burgers, pizzas and more is taking over the nation, and we’re here for it. Because when you think about it, sushi is the perfect vehicle for all sorts of flavors, whether from Mexican to Italian to Korean. If you have sticky rice and seaweed, you can shape it in pretty much any formation (including buns!) and fill it with whichever foods you love.

4. Sushi Pizza

We can’t wait to find out what shape people start making sushi into next. How about sushi birthday cake? Sushi doughnuts? Sushi spaghetti and meatballs? We are truly open to anything sushi-related … except maybe sushi frappuccinos. (Starbucks, take note.)
