But if you are a sushi lover and want to make your own, here is a new, secret recipe for a roll that is not found on the menu at Asian Rim Sushi Company.

Or better yet you can order this secret dish, if you know the name, “The B-Metro Roll.” It is large enough to share and is priced at $35. For B-Metro readers and BirminghamRestaurants.com website visitors only! View Video at BirminghamRestaurants.com/Recipes.
