These photos of mosaic sushi are absolutely mesmerizing... and mouthwatering

From sushi burgers to sushi burritos, our favorite raw fish dish has undergone quite a makeover from its austere roots. But mosaic sushi — the mind-bogglingly beautiful new trend — might be the best yet.

昨日全然お弁当の下ごしらえをする気力がなかったので、今日はお弁当もズル休み学校でお弁当を買って食べてもらいました〜( *´艸`)今日は仕事も休みなので朝からのんびり〜 晩ご飯作る時に刺身が食べたいなぁ〜と思いはじめたら、以前見たモザイク寿司を無性にやりたくなって、朝のんびりしたかわりに夜コツコツ頑張りました〜 なんとなく思ってた出来と違うけど…まっいっか〜(*´σー`)エヘヘ #モザイク寿司 #晩ご飯 #寿司 #海鮮寿司#おうちごはん#手作り#手料理#手作りごはん #ごはん日記 #夜ごはん #夕飯 #夕食#夕飯のおかず #夕飯作り #手作りごはん #手作りご飯#susi#osusi#SUSI#instafood

I think what makes mosaic sushi so lovely is the fact that it's really showcasing the ingredients, not trying to make them appear to be something else. The order of mosaics also seems totally in keeping with the intended simplicity of the best sushi — it's totally gorgeous, yes, but there's a geometry to it too.

There are mosaic sushi rolls too. They're just as pretty but seem like they would be a whole lot more complicated to make. I might take 15 extra minutes to arrange my sushi into a cute checkered pattern, but figuring out how to roll one of these bad boys is best left to a pro, methinks.

And I know what I said about austere simplicity before, but TBH, this whimsical take on mosaic sushi is probably my favorite.

Time for a pretty mosaic sushi bento, Sanrio theme. These picturesque lunchboxes are easy to assemble. And taste amazing especially if you love sashimi and sushi rice. No wonder it's popular to make mosaic sushi in Japan recently. Can you recognise all the Sanrio characters here? Hint: Piano looks like Melody and Kiki's hair is brown Haha 日本人大好きのお寿司に美しすぎる、フォトジェニックなモザイク寿司をご存知ですか? ちらし寿司のように酢飯に、刺身や野菜をトッピングしたもの。とても美味しかったんです。 今回は可愛いサンリオキャラクターを作れました。 #フォトジェニック寿司 #お寿司 #おすし #モザイク寿司 #刺身 #ちらし寿司 #和食 #手作り #サンリオ #可愛い #littlemissbento #mosaicsushi #sushi #foodtrend #handmade #chirashi #sanrio #bento #kyaraben #charaben #decoben #キャラフード #foodart #edibleart #huffposttaste #eyecandysorted #buzzfeedfood #thisisinsiderfood #foodartist #kawaiifood
