After Dalgona Coffee — and banana bread, sourdough — the Sushi Bake Tray emerges as the hot food trend of quarantine.
What's a Sushi Bake Tray, you may ask? Well, instead of having your usual sushi set up in a roll, this treat is made by deconstructing the sushi, piling up the sushi ingredients in a pan or a tray, before baking.
How do you eat one? A lot are comparing it to a taco: You just scoop a spoonful from the tray and wrap it in Nori and you're good to have a bite.
If you've been wondering where you can order one, we've listed down stores that sell these baked sushi trays filled with all the sushi ingredients you can imagine.
1. The Sushi Bake
The awesome thing about Sushi Bake is it comes with "care cards" — instructions on how to bake, how to scoop, and how long you can save it for a last bite (consume within three days) that first-timers will surely appreciate.
It comes in two sizes: Sushi Mini is good for up to three people, while Sushi Party is great for 4-6 people.
