Obviously, this roll is called “Carburetor” because it looks like one. What, you can’t see it? No, wait… look at it this way… turn your head just like this… see it now? No? Darn. Oh well, I can’t quite see it either. But I’d assume that’s why it’s named Carburetor.
Meh, who knows. What do I know about cars and engines and such? (The correct answer is, nothing.) It is, however, a delicious roll and very pretty to look at! I got the idea for this roll from the Tex Wasabi’s menu.
