Sushi? Burritos? If you’re living in California, working through this conundrum is probably engrained into your weekly routine. But thanks to one chef in San Francisco who just didn’t want to have to make that choice, now you don’t have to either. Sushiritto is the ultimate mash-up of burritos and sushi, where Latin flavors mingle with Asian ingredients.

Admittedly, I’m still trying to figure out how it’s not a gigantic, hand rolled sushi but once you read through their menu, it doesn’t really matter what it is – you just want to stuff your face with it. Take, Geisha’s Kiss, made of Yellowfin tuna, tamago, piquillo peppers, yuzu tobiko, lotus chips, cucumber, avocado, green onions, and sesame seeds. And then there’s Lava Nachos, which marries brown rice chips with extra-spicy tuna, pepper jack cheese, guacamole and sriracha aioli. Oh yeah. Their standing-room only, lines out the door location in SoMa necessitated a second opening also in downtown San Francisco. So next time you’re schlepping around SF wondering if it’s sushi or burritos, give Sushiritto a go and have it both ways.
