Crossushi is a croissant/sushi crossover from Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, which has locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seoul. Think of a chocolate croissant, but instead of the sweet dessert filling, the breaded pastry is stuffed with smoked salmon, seaweed, ginger and wasabi with sesame seeds sprinkled on top. The pastry is served with a side of soy sauce.
The bakery also offers good hybrids such as cruffins, churro croissants, and root vegetable danishes, but crossushi might just be the most unique item on the menu.
In a post on Instagram, Mr. Holmes Bakehouse co-founder Aron Tzimas commented, "it's actually pretty amazing and sells out super fast."
But Twitter users are hesitant to venture into this new food fad, and many have tweeted their reservations.
Only time will tell if the crossushi trend will pick up momentum to become the first 2018 food fad, but the pastry is off to a strong start.
