This tiny sushi platter was made by Iron Chef Morimoto.

Perhaps inspired by Ginji, the bartending Japanese hamster who runs his own little izakaya, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto shared this adorable and tiny sushi plate with his Twitter followers this morning:

As you can see, the entire 21-piece sushi platter is barely bigger than a dollar bill, but was made from real fish and seafood, plus wasabi and ginger, of course.

Twitter user @TheIrisOfInfamy tried their hand at identifying the full set:

 

Which was almost exactly right:

Maybe the next time we see one of chef Morimoto’s tiny sushi sets, he’ll be partnering up with Ginji as his barkeep, or maybe that other tiny hamster who beat world champion eater Takeru Kobayashi at a hot-dog-eating contest.

Would Morimoto beat the hamster in a tiny sushi eating contest? Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
