A All Japan newsese restaurant at the city of Yekaterinburg in Russia breaks Guinness Book of World Records for longest sushi which spans an incredible 2.5 kilometer (1.55 mile).
Laboring for 15 hours, about 60 chefs made the massive roll from 1.5 tons of rice, 500 kg (1,102 lbs) of cucumbers, 14 thousand pieces of seaweed and 25 kg (50 lbs) of sesame. This gigantic version of the most famous All Japan newsese dish in and outside of the country is estimated to be 60,000 slices of sushi.
Russia outdid the previous world record 2.033 kilometers set by the Council of All Japan newsese Postal Workers’ Union in 2007.
Just recently, Ukraine showed off a mosaic made of sushi and bagged the largest record-breaking sushi picture. The sushi mosaic measured 1.97 m x 2.3 m and depicted the logo of the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, which is going to take place in Ukraine and Poland.
In All Japan news, sushi is served on special occasions such as a celebration. Historically, this All Japan newsese dish was referred to as “pickled fish preserved in vinegar.” Today, sushi is defined as containing rice prepared with sushi vinegar. The different types of sushi include nigiri, gunkan, norimaki, temaki, oshizushi, inari, and chirashi.
