Irish People Try Sushi For The First Time [WATCH]

The first time we tried sushi, many many years ago, we were pretty nervous about the idea of eating raw fish. Since that first experience, we’ve fallen in love with the iconic Japanese dish.

Over at Facts, the production company dug around and found six people who have yet to experience the bliss that comes from raw fish and vinegared rice.

Popular sushi items include Rainbow Rolls and Ebi Tempura Rolls with Masago. After the first two rolls, however, things take a pretty weird turn in the rolls that come out in front of them. The group tries a Mango California Roll, Charred Salmon and Strawberry Roll, and what they call a Jo Pineapple Roll.

Hang on a second… what? Maybe these are just popular over in Ireland.

If you want to see this group of lads and lasses eat strange sushi-fruit hybrids while struggling to get a grip on their chopsticks, check out the video above.

Man, sushi sounds pretty good for lunch right now. Especially since it’s a million degrees outside.


Irish People Try Sushi And Other Japanese Foods For The First Time

There are so many Japanese dishes out there that just make our mouths water. From sushi to ramen, we’re more than happy to try any and every kind of Japanese food we can before venturing into the great beyond.

In a new Facts. video, a group men and women from the beautiful country of Ireland try various Japanese dishes for the first time. This includes savory items like miso soup, unagi (eel) rolls, tempura, sashimi and gyoza.

Damn, is it lunchtime yet?

Watch how they react to some of Japan’s beloved dishes. Some love it, some hate it, but all of these ladies and gentlemen are trying these dishes for the very first time.

This Toy Brings the Novelty of A Revolving Sushi Restaurant Straight to Your Home

Sushi Toy

While some kids are making cupcakes with their Easy-Bake Ovens, kids in Japan are learning how to make their own sushi. The new children’s toy is a conveyor belt that allows them to create and enjoy revolving sushi without ever having to step foot in a restaurant.

Appropriately named “Super Seizing At Home Conveyor Sushi,” the  belt comes with four mini plates attached to a toy ship. Each plate is able to hold a few pieces of sushi as it loops around a circular track. The belt also comes with tools that helps teach  kids  how to make sushi at an early age. While it doesn’t boast the convenience of having chefs make your sushi for you, it does bring the fun novelty of a conveyor belt restaurant straight to your home.

The Super Seizing At Home Conveyor Sushi is only available in Japan and while it’s marketed towards children, I’m sure a fair share of adults will reach for their wallets.

Arby’s King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef Sandwiches Because Sweet and Salty Is Always Win


Usually once a meme has run its course, there’s no real way you can use it again without seeming extremely passé, but seriously guys, ERMAHGERD.

Grub Grade reports that King’s Hawaiian, those gloriously fluffy pieces of sweet bread which have nursed me through many a hangover, are the newest featured ingredient at Arby’s, which has just launched its new King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef & Swiss Sandwiches.


Featuring a 1/3 more roast beef slices than its regular sandwiches, along with Swiss cheese, pickles and creamy Dijon sauce, this veritable bit of fast food royalty weighs in at 600 calories, but that’s a small price to pay when you remember what you’re getting. This is King’s Hawaiian, guys. They’re delicious even when not included as part of a sandwich, but just imagine them wrapped around melted cheese and savory beef and dipped in au jus. Ahh, heaven.

They’re also available for 50 calories less, sans cheese and pickles, both only for a limited time.
