There are hundreds of sushi rolls out there. Some are better than others, but a lot of good ones to choose from. However, I am going to pick the top 10 sushi rolls. Of course, this is just my opinion and if your favorite roll is not listed then do not be offended. But, you might want to take my advice and try some of these out. Anyways, let’s get into it.

Number 10:  Dynamite Roll

The dynamite roll is like a very basic roll trying to be good. It’s okay, but there are better. Don’t get me wrong, it’ll cleanse my sushi craving, but it is just average.

Number 9: California Roll

The California roll is like the training wheels of sushi. You test it out to see if you would like actual sushi. Everyone likes it, but I haven’t met anyone who says that their favorite roll is a California Roll. And if it is… you should try other rolls out there, trust me.

Number 8: Philadelphia Roll

The Philadelphia roll is like the California roll but better. It provides a bit more flavor. It’s not my favorite, but it’s not the worst. There’s not much to say about this one, it is just plain, but it’s a step up from the California roll.

Number 7: Spicy Tuna Roll 

The spicy tuna roll is another classic sushi roll, but it is a good kind of basic. I am not a huge fan of tuna, so I put it lower than some people may. But everyone can agree that spicy tuna is at least top 10. It has spice, flavor, and it’s like the jack of all trades but master of none.

Number 6: Alaska Roll

I wanted to put this one higher, but I didn’t realize how unliked this roll was until I asked around. It has salmon, which I love, avocado, which I love, and panko, which I love. This is probably my number 3, but I will put it at 6 since it is so unpopular.

Number 5: Spider Roll

I’m not a huge fan of this roll, but it is so popular I kinda have to put it on the list. It’s a classic, it’s a good roll, but not my favorite.

Number 4: Boston Roll

The Boston roll is another popular roll. It has shrimp, a type of sauce, and sometimes fish eggs. It’s so good. It’s like the California roll but 100 times better.

Number 3: Rainbow Roll

Now, the rainbow roll is very different from the basic California roll. It adds a bunch of flavor and a bit of spice to it. It’s one of my favorite rolls, however I think that there are more deserving rolls to take the next spots. 

Number 2: The Dragon Roll

The dragon roll is a sushi roll I would never recommend to someone who is “new” to sushi, but it is super super good. I was debating this one to be first, but it just is a little too niche of a roll to take the first spot.

Number 1: Spicy Shrimp Roll

This is my personal favorite sushi roll. It has a good amount of spice and shrimp is so good on sushi. I know a lot of people who say their favorite roll is spicy shrimp. I just love it and I haven’t met anyone to disagree with me.
