Food Friday #024 — Sushirrito

On June 7, 2016 I travelled a total of five hours from Berkeley to San Jose to vote for the first time. Unfortunately, I forgot to save a picture of the ordeal, but this was an important moment. Not only was I completing an important rite (pun intended) of adulthood, but the year being 2016 meant it was a presidential primary. The previous day, I had travelled a total of three hours to attend a Bernie Sanders rally at Crissy Field in San Francisco. When we arrived, the line stretched further than the eye could see. The weather was foggy and damp, but the mood was not.

Unfortunately, now that the California primaries are over, there's nothing else to say there. This being a Food Friday post, let's talk about the first two pictures instead. On the way to the bus station from the Bart station, Kelly and I walked past what I would bluntly describe as a hole-in-the-wall. To our surprise, the signage above said "Sushirrito." If you are unfamiliar with the San Francisco born concept, it is exactly what it sounds like: a sushi in the size and form of a burrito. The establishment has no seating, just a kitchen with an order window. The sushirritos are ordered off the tv screen menu with very little modification allowed, though I did ask for the wasabi powder to be left off because I can't eat spicy food.

In terms of review, I would say that the sushirrito was worth what I paid; I couldn't finish an entire sushirrito. It's great for on-the-go because the service is fast and it comes pre-cut in a paper box. I would have liked if they had more non-spicy options, but that's bearable. Would I visit again? Probably, but only if I didn't have any new options to try. ◊
