My Weekly Recommendation (#10) – Avocado Bombs
Welcome back to another rendition of my weekly recommendation! This week I will be discussing avocado bombs, which I just recently tried for the first time. These green balls of heaven are typically something you will find at a Japanese or sushi restaurant. Im sure they have different names depending on where exactly you go, but no matter what you must try one the next time you decide to eat sushi.
So these avocado bombs are essentially a rolled up ball of shredded crab that is encased in avocado slices. I’m not even sure how one would get an avocado to stay in a circular shape, but I do know that the combination of flavors this brings to the table is insane. They also will typically glaze the top part of the avocado ball with some eel sauce, spicy mayo, and crunchy flakes for additional flavor. It is somewhat challenging to eat with chopsticks, even for people who usually don’t have any problems using them, but it is well worth the struggle. So get up and head to your nearest sushi joint to see if they have these bad boys because they will literally change your life forever!
P.S. if you google these images you’ll see the exact reason you need to go try them ASAP. I myself just found out that some places also will wrap the avocado in bacon… so I will be searching for a place near me that does soon. It can also be done without crab meat for those of you who aren’t seafood fans!
