Wok Me sushi?

Plight of the Japanese mayonnaise?

Hi! happy

I was wondering if anyone knew if the sushi from Wok Me contains Japanese mayonnaise? I know a majority of Japanese restaurants sell sushi that contains it, but I'm not completely sure about Wok Me. It's a pain, because avocado and seaweed sushi is to die for (*insert monthly sushi craving*), and my own sushi 'creations' just don't taste the same (probably due to my atrocious culinary skills).

Thanks!  ecstatic

Hmm, I've been wondering this too. Avo sushi is just.. insanely good. Although, there's a few places where I live where you can buy sushi. Maybe their website would have the ingredients list? Or like a contact for them or something happy

Mhmmmm, I think I'm going to have to contact them.
Their website seems to have omitted an ingredients list. T____T

From my knowledge, Japanese mayonnaise is a mayonnaise with Asian origins that uses different ingredients from the Western version, and therefore, tastes different. Both versions use eggs though, so it's no good for a vegan. :/
I'm also aware that it has MSG in it, like a lot of other Asian foods.
That chemical has a lot of negative controversy behind it, as it's considered a flavour enhancer that directly affects your taste buds (in short terms, it's basically viagra for your taste buds).
I've heard lots of stories about it, like it being harmful to the central nervous system, and directly damaging nerve cells within the brain.
But whether they're true or not, and whether MSG is truly harmful to our bodies is open to debate.
(Still, I try to avoid it like the plague; but then again, perhaps it's only harmful in large quantities).

Most sushi I've found that's pre-brought contains it though, hence my dilemma.  cry

The best thing you can do is ask them to make you a roll without it. I never purchase pre-made sushi because you never know what's going to be in it!
The Japanese places I go to are all happy to oblige and stay away from the mayonnaise happy

'Kewpie' is the brand. Made with egg yolks only, rather than the whole egg like other mayonnaise.
