Sushi Burrito; Sushirrito (sushi + burrito)

A “sushi burrito” is sushi wrapped like a burrito—either in a tortilla, in seaweed, or in a thin sheet of soy paper. “Sushirrito” (sushi + burrito) is a registered trademark for a San Francisco-based restaurant chain. Jogasaki Sushi Burrito (a Los Angeles food truck) trademarked since January 14, 2011; Sushirrito trademarked since January 18, 2011

“Tofu Guacamole Sushi Burrito” was cited in a California newspaper in 1996 an “Sushi Burrito” was cited in another California newspaper in 2003. “Sushi burrito” was cited in a Boston (MA) newspaper in 2011. The New York City-based Business Insider blog tried Sushirrito in August 2013 and wrote, “Here’s hoping the company expands to NYC soon.”

For lunch I ducked into Macho Teriyaki for a Tofu Guacamole Sushi Burrito, extra salsa, no pickles, easy on the wasabi, with a side of echinacea extract and a ...

The Sushi Burrito was a mess — a tasty, enjoyable mess, served in two overstuffed wraps. We each grabbed a thin tortilla packed with crab, shrimp tempura, cucumber and avocado, and dipped this handful into eel sauce, guacamole and spicy mayonnaise. This is multiculturalism you can sink your teeth into.

Local chefs took notice of my journey and invited me to try some inventive, nontraditional wraps. I ate a sushi burrito at Basho Japanese Brasserie and colonial-style “Wampanoag” and “Pilgrim” burritos at Plimoth Plantation.

Food Truck Friday: Jogasaki, the Sushi Burrito Truck

The burritos, which range from $4 for a California burrito to $8 for a lobster burrito, all contain some version of sushi, albeit of a non-traditional, usually deep-fried and often mayonnaise-drenched variety, on a generous bed of rice. They’re served at room temperature, fine for a sushi roll but a little off-putting for a burrito. Diners can choose between a traditional tortilla or, for $.50 extra, a thin sheet of soy paper studded with black sesame seeds. It’s tasty and well suited to the flavors in the burritos, but it’s thin and tears too easily, so unless you’re sitting down, the tortilla is a better bet.

Sushiritto
The idea for Sushiritto, which serves burrito-size sushi rolls from a storefront in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood, has its roots in sloth, avarice and a sushi-making session six years ago by owner Peter Yen and his brother.

Would You Eat a Sushi Burrito at a MLB Ballpark?
By Joe Student May 29, 2013 2:45 PM
The San Francisco Giants are selling sushi burritos — a concoction of tuna, rice and avocado swaddled inside a seaweed wrap — at AT&T Park this year. The team calls the item the ‘SF Giants Roll,’ but it’s really a burrito made of/with sushi. You’d certainly smell this vendor from a few sections away.

The ‘Sushirrito’ Is Real, And You Can Eat One If You Live In San Francisco
Megan Willett Aug. 8, 2013, 5:07 PM
While recently perusing a recent Reddit AMA for a female sushi chef, we stumbled on a picture of a sushirrito.

This sushi roll of epic proportions captivated our New York Office: It was hard to conceive that the creation — the size of a burrito and eaten with your hands — was real. It sounded too good to be true.
