Going to a restaurant and ordering a dish that was originally invented in a foreign country you never know whether the recipe is the original one or you deal with some kind of a domestic variation.

Before we departed to Japan, I was always convinced that original Japanese rolls are served with raw or backed fish, other seafood or vegetables. Contrary, putting meat like chicken inside rice and seaweed I treated as an European invention.

…Till I ordered and tasted rolls with Japanese beef and kimchi midst of Tokyo.

True Japanese (served in Japan) rolls filled with meat.

According to the menu the ingredients to prepare the roll were: grilled beef, kimchi (spicy pickled cabbage), sangchu (lettuce), nori (seaweed) and rice, as well as the restaurants original sauce.
