Kewpie mayo is a special type of Japanese mayo. Arguably the best mayo you will taste, Kewpie is made with the combination of egg yolks, vegetable oil, monosodium glutamate, spice and seasoning, all in a mixture of apple vinegar. Kewpie mayo is by far different from regular mayonnaise. The remarkable traditional Kewpie mayonnaise has been able to shrug off competitions with the quality it delivers when used in various recipes. Its richness, texture, and savory flavor make it the right choice for every chef.
Sushi’s is best served when sriracha is combined with Kewpie mayo. This combination produces a lustfully delicious Sushi that you will not forget in a rush. You can also combine Kewpie mayo with soy sauce, wasabi, rice wine vinegar, miso, garlic, ginger and karashi (Japanese hot mustard).

It can go with potato, serve as a sandwich sauce, blend with tuna salad, pancake, make a yakisoba look irresistible, it can also be used with furai, rice ball, salad, it blends perfectly with red shrimp and panko together, it can also be used with fried rice.
I became hooked on Kewpie mayonnaise after a trip to Japan. I especially loved it in simple tuna and mayo rolls. They were my go-to snack while traveling.
This mayonnaise is so good and seems to go with everything! Unfortunately, it’s still difficult to find in my area and needs to be special ordered.
Why would you use mayo on sushi such as americans do?
Many people like it. One famous example is the spicy tuna roll. Have you tried one of those?
My search has landed me here. Heard this from a friend and I’ve been looking to know what it’s all about and used for. Now, I know. Thanks.
I know about this Kewpie. But may I ask if its particularly used in making any kind of sushi? Thanks!
