The Sushirrito

It was only a matter of time before this sort of mashup monstrosity was conceived.  We already have the Chinito (R.I.P.) and the Korrito, so logic clearly dictates a Japanese version as well (Vietnam gets a pass due to its sandwich prowess).

Although it may look puny in the photo above, the Sushirrito weighs in at well over a pound and comes packed with salmon, tuna, shrimp, and all sorts of ingredients you might expect plus some chipotle alchemy to keep things interesting.

The only downside is its location at 59 New Montgomery by Market.  Way downtown, yet well within bike range I suppose.  Anyway, the place just opened, so if you happen to be down there, it may be worth checking out.

More about it on Thrillist here.

    Yoyo has a Mexican roll. I think it’s got beans and sauce and maybe carnitas in it?

    I remember hating the texture but loving the flavor.

    I love how it’s right next door to a gym.

        i want an inspirational poster with a photo of me in that line which reads ‘delusional determination’.

        anyway, more importantly, it was a pretty tasty hybrid lunch. basically portable sushi with more fill you up factor than traditional sushi. not sure i’d bike downtown just to get one, but if you’re in the area and the line is not to howard street it’s worth ten bucks.

    In the past few days, I’ve had spam maki and pork belly banh mi. Surely there is a place for the sushirrito. Combining my two favorite foods can’t be bad…

  7. Can’t wait to try it. One of the downsides of typical maki is too much rice. This looks like it has as much or more filling than rice.
