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.

Paving the Way for the Korrito

You knew it was only a matter of time before all that KogiBBQ hype found its way to the Mission, and now you get to see what all the fuss is about (provided you haven’t tracked down SF’s own version somewhere in the FiDi, Kung Fu Tacos).

Already known as the closest competition of Pal’s Takeaway for “Best Sandwich bought from a liquor store,” Rhea’s Deli (19th and Valencia) has expanded their menu from the already delicious Katsu Pork and Korean Steak sandwiches to embrace the ongoing “Mexicanization” of Asian food.

The next logical step:  Korean Burritos anyone?
