Giant sushi mosaic uses 1,305 pounds of seafood to break world record
Sushi can seem like a delicate art with most people only ordering it in small quantities, but when you have the task of breaking a Guinness Book of World Record, sushi-making has a whole new meaning.
As the 10th anniversary of Itacho & Itamae Sushi in Hong Kong was nearing, they wanted to do something big to celebrate, like breaking the previous world record for largest sushi mosaic. On January 8th, 2014, 20,647 individual pieces of sushi were made using 1,305 lbs of seafood, 882 lbs of rice, and 1370 eggs to create a sushi mosaic that was 404.40 square feet.
Afterward, the sushi was packaged and given to hungry spectators and the homeless.
