Hand Rolls Are a Full-Blown Sushi Trend in Dallas

A new spot called Sushi De Handroll brings temaki to North Dallas

Some temaki rolls are cone-shaped, others are cylindrical

Even as the poke trend rages on, temaki-style sushi is having a moment in Dallas.

Sushi De Handroll, a new restaurant set for The Hill development at Walnut Hill and Highway 75, is officially en route. A TABC permit application indicates that it will arrive at 8041 Walnut Hill Lane Suite 820 in the coming weeks. It’s the third temaki sushi restaurant to open its doors in Dallas, joining Namo in the West Village and Deep Ellum’s Nori Handroll Bar, which just arrived last week.

For the unfamiliar, temaki-style sushi is focused on hand rolls. Sheets of nori are crisped lightly, then filled with fish and rice and served immediately. Decidedly larger than the typical bite of nigiri, hand rolls are (obviously) eaten by hand in a couple of bites. The rolls are a popular lunch option in Japan because they’re easy to prepare and eat quickly.

No word yet on when Sushi De Handroll will open its doors at The Hill. Stay tuned for an official debut date.
