Yes, there’s now such a thing as sushi tacos

When the sushirrito came out, we knew it was only a matter of time until we got the sushi taco. That time has now arrived.

Southern California-based pop-up store Norigami is now selling a hybrid between a taco and sushi. The delectable combination consists of fried seaweed and tempura shell filled with ingredients like rice, seafood, and veggies.

The sushi tacos also come with various sides and condiments such as hand-shaved ube, orange yam, eel sauce, sriracha mayo, and white taro chips.

Our exclusive Noritaco for @foodbeast @noodsnoodsnoods !! Introducing our Ramen Noritaco! We take our signature crispy seaweed taco shell and stuff it with fresh RAMEN NOODLES, SLOW COOKED PORK BELLY chasu dripping with our homemade MISO SAUCE, topped with CORN and GREEN ONION. This will only be at the @noodsnoodsnoods event January 14 in Downtown Santa Ana so buy your tix ASAP! #norigami #norigamitacos #ramen #porkbelly #chasu #abc7eyewitness #eeeeeats #dailyfoodfeed #tryitordiet #yelp #thrillist #zagat #foodbeast

According to Norigami, the discovery of the sushi taco was a “slightly drunken” discovery:

“As somewhat of a joke, a sheet of nori [seaweed] was dipped into tempura batter and dropped into the fryer. We added some leftover sushi rice, krab mix, and whatever sushi scraps we got our hands on and TA-DAH! The sushi nori taco was born.”
