Simplified Dragon Roll (#ドラゴンロール)
Dragon Roll (#ドラゴンロール) is my favorite sushi roll, it contains a crunchy texture of shrimp tempura and avocado. You can also named this as 天ぷら海老巻き寿司 in Japan by specifying the ingredients. There are mainly two versions of roll in Japan, makizushi(巻き寿司╱まきずし) and uramaki (裏巻き寿司/うらまき), which uramaki is an inside-out sushi roll, which means sushi rice is on the outside while nori wraps around the ingredients inside.
