The food replicas that restaurants in Japan use to help people see what they are serving started off as a curiosity and then became one of the most recognizable parts of Japanese culture, to the extent they are now sold in souvenir shops and bought by tourists. The Omelet Sushi Model Kit is a great way to not only have a very realistic replica of one of the most popular types of sushi, the one that has tamago-yaki or sweet omelet as a topping, but also to make it yourself!
Other than a pair of scissors and a pair of tweezers, the Omelet Sushi Model Kit has everything you need to make a real-life, 1/1 replica of a tamago-yaki nigiri-zushi, complete with the strip of nori seaweed that keeps it tied on the rice. But be prepared for some precision work because every grain of rice that makes up this delicious-looking bite of sushi must be put together by hand – and there are 364 of them. So clear a few hours on your Sunday, get your tools out, and let's make some sushi!
