Sushi rolls with soy paper?

As much as I've tried, I've never been a fan of sushi/maki rolls because of the nori (seaweed). The other night I was at Duozo in Back Bay and they suggested having the maki rolls with soy paper instead of the nori. It was great! I got all of the great flavors of the sushi components without having to deal with the nori.

Now I'm curious as to whether this is standard in most sushi places? Anyone know?

  1. I've seen it t Whole Foods, but I don't know how it went over...I got the feeling it was for people, like yourself, who don't like the flavor of seaweed. Me, i get hand-rolls so I can get MORE seaweed flavor...

    1. Mandarin Reading uses soy paper in a couple of their sushi offerings. I had the mermaid roll the other day which was great. I would assume it wouldnt be a big deal for them to make more traditional nori with the soy paper instead of the seaweed.
