Genki Sushi's World Kitchen Fight 2018

by - Monday, November 12, 2018

The World Kitchen Fight at Genki Sushi is a competition between the different countries Genki Sushi serves all over the world. Each country creates their own masterpieces using tuna as the main ingredient, which are then presented to a panel of judges to critique.

It's actually a great way to showcase each country's uniqueness, incorporating their culture and everything else that can define them as a nation into something everyone can enjoy. So if you're curious, here are the creations the sushi experts came up with:


Sushi Bar Salad
Kuwait's entry is a salad with some salmon, avocado, tuna as ingredients, mixed with a wasabi creamy sauce and topped with a strawberry.


Tuna Nigiri with Mango Salsa
The tuna nigiri with mango salsa from the Philippines brings a contrast of flavors. The mango gives it a sweet flavor, while the salsa gives it a bit of a spice.


Double Maguro Nori Sushi


This one from the United States is a bit puzzling, but it tasted good, nonetheless. It's a bed of rice topped with diced tuna and kimchi, presented inside a soft and sweet tofu skin.


Tuna Cheese Harumaki Roll
The tuna cheese harumaki roll is a sushi wrapped in a spring roll that gave it a bit of crunch, topped with some cheese and sesame seeds. And since I am a fan of cheese and anything crispy, of this one won me over, too! 


Tuna with Cream Cheese and Crunchy Soy Sauce
I can't believe I was able to get a shot of this but forgot to gave it a try! I'm sure it would have been delicious. I guess I'll have to add this to the list of items I will try when I return to Genki soon.


Layered Tuna Cutlet
The layered tuna cutlet may be a simple dish, but it sure wasn't difficult to appreciate. The cream cheese on top of the tuna just gave it a denser texture without drawing the attention away from the tuna, which was the highlight of the sushi.


Hong Kong Style Spicy Tuna Sushi
Of course, saving the best for last is this year's winner - the spicy tuna from Hong Kong! It had a tolerable spice level, and a nice combination of flavors. There's no doubt why this one was voted best. It was my favorite!

These creations will be available at the Genki Sushi branches starting November 10, 2018! Hurry and try them while you can!
