A Philadelphia roll is a makizushi (also classified as a kawarizushi) type of sushi generally made with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and cucumber. It can also include other ingredients, such as other types of fish, avocado, scallions, and sesame seed.
The name "Philly roll" is derived from the Philadelphia Cream Cheese brand. Incorporating smoked salmon ("lox") and cream cheese in a sushi roll took this popular combination of ingredients from its use on a bagel when sushi increased in popularity in North America from the 1980s.
Variations on traditional rolls like the Philly roll have been criticized for taking what was traditionally a healthy, low-fat food in its Japanese iteration (in which salmon would be raw and cream cheese nonexistent) and making it into a high-fat one. Traditional rolls do not contain dairy products.
