SB 1070 Sushi Roll

While researching this week’s “Immigration Nation” roundup, I ran across word of Stingray Sushi’s SB 1070 roll. I phoned the restaurant for more info and a picture. Inside is crab meat, avocado and pico de gallo with tuna, white fish, avocado and cilantro on top. The roll is split in two by a wasabi border. “It’s one border you’re welcome to cross,” says Stingray in a news release.

Stirring your taste buds and political spittle, Stingray has two restaurants—on in Phoenix and one in Scottsdale, Az. But, the AZ mini-chain promises, “You don’t need any papers to get through the door. We only check ID for age when ordering cocktails, not status.” The roll will be available for as long as the law is tied up in court, or forever, as Stingray says.

Let’s make other SB 1070 food: Half apple pie, half empanada, says Arts Editor Patricia Sauthoff. Half wrap with cream cheese and ham, half chorizo burrito. You do some.
