ALPH EATS / Sushirrito, San Francisco
Wait, what? Sushi burritos? Holy shit, sign me up.
I’m the skinniest fat man you will ever meet. I eat all day. I love all food. No freaking joke, I’m like that little Asian dude that wins all of the hot dog eating contests (No dick jokes). I grew up poor so I am certainly not picky, but I’ll tell you when its good and tell you when its bad.
I first heard about Sushirrito while planning a trip to San Fransisco. From their website: “Sushirrito offers made-to-order, hand-held sushi burritos stuffed with savory Asian and Latin-infused ingredients and flavors.”In other words, they make sushi fucking burrito’s, and they rule. Remember Beavis and Butthead’s obsession with Nacho’s? well, this could be my cure all for constant cravings of two of my favorite foods, burritos and sushi.
Their menu offers basic mixes of latin and asian cuisine. Plain, simple and delicious. I tried 3 of them because I’m a lush:
Salmon Samba $9.50
Teriyaki-Baked Salmon, Tempura Asparagus, Cucumber, Lola Rosa Lettuce, Avocado, Pepitas, Green Onions. Sauce: Wasabi Mayo.
Geisha’s Kiss $10.50
Yellowfin Tuna (Hand-Caught), Tamago, Piquillo Peppers, Yuzu Tobiko, Lotus Chips, Cucumber, Avocado, Green Onions, Sesame Seeds. Sauce: White Soya.
Oven Roasted Pork Belly, Melted Swiss Cheese, Shaved Cabbage, Avocado, Cilantro, Green Onions, Red Radish. Sauce: Mustard Seed Mayo.
All in all, they were pretty good. Being somewhat of a sushi snob, I was not so excited about the selections that were basically giant hand rolls. If you want a hand roll they are best made in the traditional fashion. And if you want the best hand roll go to Inaho in Yarmouthport, Ma. With that said, the fusion style sushirrito’s were awesome. The pork belly was killer and if I lived in SF I’d be there at least once a week. They proved to be healthy, fast, filling and most importantly they tasted good. The company has a dedication to sustainability and is environmentally friendly than most which is a triple win in my book, so go try them for yourself one of these days.
