According to Metro, vegan food blogger Sam from So Beautifully Raw introduced the concept of the sushi burger to the good folk of Instagram earlier this week. They immediately lost their minds.

The recipe is simple enough: Replace the two bread buns with two rice pancake-style galettes and fill them with healthy (and yummy) ingredients like salmon and avocado. As The Telegraph explains: Chefs craft the rice into the shape of a burger. It is sometimes left just-cooked, sticky and fresh, and sometimes fried for ease of eating. Yes, there are deep-fried versions.

Also included are traditional sushi components such as raw fish, ginger, seaweed and wasabi, but with a burger shop twist. Some versions contain pulled pork and pickles, while others sport a big, juicy burger patty. Pictures below:

So, sushi burgers are popping up everywhere on Instagram. But don’t get sucked in by the pretty pictures. These sushi burgers might look incredible, tasty and heavenly, but they will leave you with broken dreams. A burger bun made of sticky rice just doesn’t work.

Burgers are supposed to be something you can pick up in your hand and enjoy anytime, anywhere, right? But sushi burgers?

Even Sam admits it can be ‘messy to eat’, recommending chopsticks or a fork. If you don’t have either, we strongly recommend against eating it at your desk with your favourite white shirt on.

Now, some more pictures that might make you want to order a burger or sushi or both?

Ladies and Gentlemen..... Yes, this is now a thing 😱😱😱 ! #SushiBurger 🍔🍣
