All hail the worldwide debut of the Ube roll.
The Filipino favorite made an appearance in a cheeky episode of Steven Universe, and our fellow Indios are justifiably excited. We can’t blame them, of course. Ube rolls are the shit. And it’s an admirable gesture from the showrunners—to recognize that plenty of their voice talents are Filipino, and the reddit-folk are wildly speculating that Lars is one, or at least of Filipino descent

It is, of course, Lars who in the Season 4 finale of Steven Universe made the Ube roll, saying that the delectable “represents him”.
Good on you, SU!
