We’re not even a week into 2018 and there’s already another food trend taking over on social media. Meet crossushi, also known as the California Croissant. It’s exactly what it sounds like, sushi inside a flaky pastry, which might not be so bad, but it’s also served with soy sauce, and that’s where we’re pausing to reconsider.
This frankenfood was created by Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in Los Angeles, because of course it’s from L.A. And it’s another trend combining sushi with unexpected things like pizza, tacos, burritos, and now French pastry. Admittedly, it doesn’t really look all that appealing, but what matters here is the taste, aside from a good photo for the ‘gram.
So what does the California Croissant taste like? Imagine a classic French croissant with a salmon roll, ginger, and a little wasabi inside, and the whole thing is topped with dried sesame and seaweed bits. And fans say it’s savory perfection, with or without the soy sauce.
But Crossushi isn’t actually a new creation, it’s been around for a few years, it’s just taken the Internet a little while to discover it, make it trendy, and come up with the clever mashup name. And now that the Internet is obsessed with this trend, we’ll be seeing more of it. Maybe it’ll even make its way to a bakery near you.
