Sushi + Burrito = Sushirrito. The name says it all. It's basically a hand held sushi on steriods that looks like a burrito. I first heard about this small restaurant from 7x7 and told myself, what a great idea. No chopsticks needed for this kind of sushi. SF is really a place for foodtrepreneurs (foodie entrepreneur). We have Indian burritos (Curry Up now), Sisig tacos (Senor Sisig), Kimchi tacos (Namu, HRD), etc. It seems like we can make anything into some form of a taco or burrito. And so we can add Sushirrito to the list of SF's Asian+Latin fusions.  I'm not really a big burrito fan but I do LOVE Sushi. So today I get to try Peter Yen's exciting flavor combinations.

The works

So my lunch was half Three Amigos and half Mamacita Roll. Me and my wife split so we can taste two rolls. I suggest you pick a partner and do the same.

On the left is the Three Amigos roll which is Tuna, Salmon, Hiramasa with Avocado, shaved red Radish, Yuzu Tobiko, Asparagus and green onions. It was smothered with wasabi mayo which I really love. The other roll was the Mamacita Roll which has Tuna, shitake mushrooms, cucumber, avocado, radish and some crumbled rice chips which complimented the dish with its crunch. The sauce is the Mexican kabayaki which is kind of sweet. I like the Three Amigos so far. The flavors work really well together plus the wasabi gives it some kick!

Here are some other rolls that I will try on my next visit.

Crispy ebi - Tempura Shrimp, Shredded Crab, Plantains, Avocado, Cucumber and Sriracha crema

Latin ninja - Salmon, Mango, Avocado, Asparagus, Daikon Radish, Meyer Lemon, Pickled Red Onion, Cilantro with some ginger sauce
Sushirrito is currently open during Mondays - Fridays from 11am-3pm. Make sure to beat the crowd since the line could be long and can take up to 30 minutes. I'll definitely come back to this hidden gem and try more exciting flavors. Who knows, they'll fry the whole roll next time or even make something with Spam ("spam musubi").
