Trending: Sushi-Burrito Hybrids in Manila

Will we be seeing this delicious marriage in more restaurants?

Sushirrito

 

(SPOT.ph) Croissant-donuts are the KimYe of the food world. After the hype, no one really cares anymore. Sushi-burritos? Now that's a pair as interesting at Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik.

 

Sushi may be Japanese and burritos Mexican, but they're both part of the rice-stuffed family so it's pretty logical to put them together. This hybrid, led by New York's Uma Temakeria, San Francisco's Sushirrito, and Los Angeles' Jogasaki Sushi Burrito, has quickly but quietly been invading the United States for the past couple of years. Now, it's in Manila and the ball is only just rolling.

 

Carb lover? We have you "carb-ered." Here are some restaurants that are jumpstarting this trend:

 

Nori

 

Nori

The frontrunner is Nori, which opened in July 2015. Instead of the more obvious seaweed wrap that the restaurant is named after, Nori opts for a soy "tortilla" that sturdily carries their overloaded stuffing. Their flavors are fusion East-West and a must-try is the Umami Chicken Burrito (P159).

 

Nori is at 1 Unit A, 1st Street, Barangay Kapitolyo, Pasig City. Read more about Nori.

 

Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi

 

Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi

Chef Kelly Parreño follows the temaki tradition for her Sushiritos. A temaki is a slightly larger type of sushi where cone-shaped nori carries rice and other fillings. It's essentially a burrito waiting to happen. Ta Ke Ho Me has three flavors: mushroom-filled Vegetarian (P159), Tuna (P179), and Salmon (P199). To drive home that burrito flavor, Chef Kelly adds guacamole and lettuce.

 

Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi is at 52 Sergeant Esguerra Avenue, Quezon City. Read more about Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi.

 

Westwood

 

Westwood

Los Angeles-themed Westwood aptly follows California's style of fusion eats. Their Sushirritos (yup, two Rs) look like oversized sushi or, rather, rolls that haven't been sliced yet. Flavors like Seoul Beef Bulgogi (P249) and 3's King Korean Bacon (P249) noticeably take a more Asian turn. 

 

Westwood is at 80 Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City. Read more about Westwood.
