The World's Longest Sushi Roll Spans an Absurd 1.5 Miles

Sushi is great because it's one of those foods that you can't get enough of. But English Russia found a Japanese restaurant in the city of Yekaterinburg (wherever that is) that measures its rolls not in pieces, but in football fields.

Determined to break the world record for longest sushi roll, a shopping center aptly named "ΜΕΓΑ" contacted the Guinness Book of World Records and set out to construct a 2.5 kilometer (1.55 mile) long "sausage". (Apparently this is what they're called in Russia. The more you know...)

Watch here as 60 chefs craft 1.5 tons of rice, 500 kg of cucumbers, 14 thousand pieces of seaweed and 25 kg of sesame into this monster meal. By my calculations, this roll could be sliced up into over 60,000 pieces of sushi! [English Russia and Russia Beyond the Headlines]
