Urban Kvetch: The Jewish Roll

The Jewish Roll
The Japanese cats over at Crazy Fish restaurant in Los Angeles are just calling it what it is. No need to gloss things over by calling it a “Philadelphia Roll” or a “Brooklyn Roll” like other restaurants do. It’s rice and seaweed with a shmear and lox. The swirls of bright red smelt roe enhance the chef’s presentation, but come on, it’s still rice with a shmear. The fact that it’s kosher doesn’t make it right. But damn, it’s nice to look at.

What do you think?
