The rise in health conscious customers has forced the industry players to be innovate and competitive. One of the items propelled by such change is Sushi Burrito; ginormous mix of meat/ fish, crunchy veggies wrapped with Seaweed. The idea of turning the Mexican delight into Sushi form may be somewhat repulsive but the outcome is exciting. Sushi-B'rito is one of the first of its kind to offer the true fusion of Japanese and Mexican. The place Sushi-Burrito specialist joins the tenants at sPICE Canopy (formerly known as PISA); the interior is clean and bright, with ample seating. It adopts a fast-food takeaway concept- diners are to order at the counter and wait for their turns to be called. The menu is direct and straight-forward, with a few choices of Sushi Burritos, Rice Burgers and Japanese Don on offer; quality's good but the price might be a little hurtful to the wallet.
Salmon Burrito Set (Rm 20.90)
Beef Burger Set (Rm 21.90)
All orders come with a choice of ala-carte or set meals; the latter option will incur an additional Rm 3. One of their signature Sushi Burritos- Salmon Burrito sees chunks of smoked Salmon, crunchy greens and a handful of Rice wrapped with Seaweed. Smoked Salmon was used in lieu of fresh Salmon (Sashimi); the Smoked Salmon imparts a salty-smokiness to the wrap and it was good to go on its own. No additional dressing or dips required; we thought it was brilliantly crafted. It was a small disappointment to know that no Guacamole was on offer. Every Set Meal comes with a drink and Fries or Edamame; though we'd prefer to have a bowl of Miso Soup to go with the Sushi Burrito.
Their Beef Rice Burger paled when in comparison with Salmon Sushi Burrito; the Beef patty was expertly cooked- slightly crumbly but perfectly juicy in the middle and most tender but the seasoning was rather bold and felt a little saltish towards the end. We'd also prefer the Rice Patties to possess a charred aroma, not too sure if they grilled them but if they did, they need to do it for slightly longer. It was a quite enjoyable meal otherwise.
