Hatsune: Learn the Art of Sushi Rolls

Famous for their unique and playful signature sushi rolls, Hatsune is the original California-style sushi creators in China.

And with over half of the sushi rolls listed on Hatsune’s menu already named after and created by their die-hard, loyal customers over the years, they know that their sushi lovers are as crafty as they are insatiable. Hatsune doesn’t like playing by the rules because as long as the ingredients are attainable, anything is fair game. The biggest limiting factor is really only your imagination when it comes to creating your ultimate dream sushi roll.

“Since Hatsune first opened over 14 years ago (in 2001), we’ve built a tremendously close community of sushi addicts whose opinions we respect, feedback we value, and for successful sushi ideas that have come to them over the years, we also give due credit, rewarding each with name recognition on our menu every time they came to us with their own dream sushi creation. Some of our most popular sushi rolls are dedicated to our valued addicts – from the Moto-Roll, Pastor Roll, Clayton Roll and Amy Roll, these are all real addicts who either created or inspired these creations.”  – Hatsune

Hands-On Learning at Hatsune Kerry

Though we all undoubtedly have our favorite Hatsune sushi rolls, I’m guessing that at some point (most likely while munching your way through a table full of sushi bites), you’ve either wished you could tweak an already existing roll or dreamed of creating your own masterpiece. To help their sushi fanatics build both experience and a desire to experiment, Hatsune started hosting annual sushi making classes at their venue so that anyone and everyone could learn the proper techniques of sushi rolling.
