On 26th November, a new Japanese infusion concept- Sushi Burrito opened in Dubai. Before it opened to public, I had a sneak peek of this new restaurant last week. And I must say I am pretty impressed with their food offering.
Located in the Ground Level of Emirates Financial Towers in the business hub of DIFC, is the unique concept of Sushi Burrito which is a must-visit for all Japanese food fans.
Sushi Burrito restaurant has a vibe and interiors of an urban Japanese eatery in downtown Tokyo. The restaurant is small and cosy with comfortable seating area. They also have a large communal dining table in the center.
We loved the Japanese inspired minimalistic decor. Beautiful Japanese photo frames adorned the wall of the restaurant. Artificial cherry blossom tree in the corner adds vibrancy to the venue. From the menu to the table mat and napkins everything is done tastefully.
Here’s what team Sushi Burrito has to say about their concept:
Sushi Burrito brings Japanese infusion to Dubai. With our unique twist on Sushi and Japanese food, you’re sure to find a dish that you’ll love. We start with only freshest ingredients to stir fry delicious melodies of tastes and colors that are sure to delight the senses. We learned the art of sushi in its homeland Okinawa and bring the tradition of Japanese ancestors and combines it with traditional and new techniques to create our own style of sushi and Japanese cuisine by name of Sushi Burrito. A unique taste that must be experienced, you’ll return again and again and find something new with every visit.
As I visited Sushi Burrito almost ten days before their official opening, they only had water and soft drinks. They didn’t have any mocktails and their coffee machine was not operational. So we just had water to drink. Now all the beverages are available.
Their menu is sleek and simple. You can choose from their selection of sushi burrito, poke, edamame, maki rolls, nigiri and sashimi. They also serve Mochi for dessert.
You have the option of having sushi burrito as a burrito or in the form of poke. We went for the burrito option. They offer a wide range of burrito/poke. Being vegetarians, we went for the vegetarian option. You also get to create your own burrito/poke by choosing 1 protein, veggies and sauces.
Usually sushi is rolled in seaweed or nori, but in Sushi Burrito you can customize your sushi burrito with seaweed or rice paper or even saj bread. Incredible isn’t it?
The Vegetable Sushi Burrito was packed with their own special sauce, guacamole, lettuce, cucumber, coleslaw, garishoga, mango, edamame, pickled turnips and nuts. I got mine customized with rice paper. I can’t even explain how awesome it was. I can make a trip all the way to DIFC, just to eat their sushi burrito. And the size is so huge that, you’ll have to share it with someone.
Next we ordered the steamed and Spicy Edamame. After that we ordered Vegetable Maki Rolls and the rolls were super fresh and utterly delicious. We liked the way it was presented.
We ended our preview with the delectable Matcha Mochi. They also have mango mochi in their menu.
Their vegetarian option is limited, but we liked whatever we tried. Loved the food and would like to come back and savour their other dishes. The flawless service complemented the good food.
