Sushirrito is the original sushi burrito concept before it went big around the world. When I was in San Francisco and Palo Alto, I knew I had to check this place out.
Sushirrito is made-to-order with a mix of Asian and Latin flavours. It’s the perfect alternative to fast food.
In Palo Alto, the Sushirrito is located on University Ave close to Stanford.
When we came here for lunch, it was packed. Its also located beside Blue Bottle Cafe. There are limited seats inside.
Lava Nachos are in limited quantities each day. It has brown rice chips topped with tuna picante, melted Pepper Jack cheese, ginger guac, green onions, nori strips, and Sriracha aioli. A very flavourful dish and great for a few people to share.
Geisha’s Kiss has Yellowfin Tuna (Hand-Line Caught), tamago, piquillo peppers, lotus chips, namasu cucumber, green leaf lettuce, ginger guac, yuzu tobiko with a sesame white soya sauce.
I liked the clean fresh taste of the tuna with the crunchy texture of the lotus chips.
Sumo Crunch has shrimp tempura, surimi crab, shaved cabbage, cucumber, ginger guac, and Sriracha Aioli. It is then covered in red tempura flakes. This version was pretty good as well.
Genmai Horchata is one of the drinks they have. It is their blend of green tea and horchata.
Overall, it was a good quick lunch for us and with the 3 items ordered for 2 people, it was plenty of food. The sushirrito reminded me of a large uncut sushi roll with different types of filling and sauce.
