Sushi which comes in a large* cone of seaweed. A hand roll usually contains the same set of ingredients as maki - steamed rice and fillings - but the larger size usually allows enterprising sushi chefs to come up with creative combinations.

Many hand rolls use cooked or seasoned fish instead of raw fish.

Eating hand rolls is very tricky, especially if you are also seasoning it by dipping it in a mixture of soy sauce and wasabi. Use strong bites to cut through the seaweed and fish before tearing away. Note that you can use your hand to eat a hand roll, unlike other sushi.

*A hand roll is usually a cone between 10 and 15 centimeters long.
