Why choose between sushi and a burrito when you can have both? That’s right, the latest asian-fusion trend spreading across the country is a combination of the raw fish delicacy and Mexican favorite, so, of course, it has landed in Las Vegas. The idea is that you don’t have to sacrifice convenience and customizability in order to snack on your favorite sushi bites. If this appeals to you, stop by one of these spots that’s trying to establish itself in Sin City.
Soho Japanese Restaurant is massively successful in its own right; it was named the Best New Sushi spot in 2014 and was hailed as no. 3 on Yelp’s Top 100 restaurants in the U.S. last year. After establishing the original Soho, chef John Chien Lee took his 20 years of experience off the Strip to combine his love of Japanese and Mexican food at Soho SushiBurrito. Soho is credited with bringing this craze to Las Vegas and remains one of the most popular options.
The top sellers are the Angry Tuna (ahi tuna, lettuce, red onion, jalapeno, masago, cucumber, crispy wonton strips, seaweed salad, avocado, and poke sauce) and Steak and Egg (grilled steak, sweet omelet, cream cheese, tomato, baby spinach, lettuce, red onion, tempura crunch, screaming “O” sauce, and unagi sauce). In addition to the burritos, this joint offers salads, rice bowls, and nachos made with chicken, beef, shrimp tempura, soft shell crab, and vegan beef. Even better – this meal won’t break the bank. The burritos run $8.95 and a side of chips and cheese sauce is $2.49.
Location: 2600 W Sahara Ave #115, Las Vegas.
While the burritos at this fusion restaurant are the eatery’s signature, they also offer another cultural hybrid – “jachos”, made with corn or taro chips and a variety of toppings including nine sauce options. Jaburritos’ fare is completely customizable – rice and salad bowls are also offered and the protein options are plenty, including surimi crab, gardein asada tofu, and yellow tail.
If you lack the creativity to make your own meal, don’t worry. Pre-designed options include the Mission (salmon, sushi ebi shrimp, cream cheese, pico de gallo, tortilla strips, romaine lettuce, yuzu guacamole, and tomatillo shiso sauce) and Rockport (soft shell crab, spicy tuna, surimi crab, jalapeno, masago, cucumber, red onion, tempura crunch, chipotle mayo, and sweet anguilla sauce).
It’s not just the food that gets attention at Jaburrito; the company is also committed to sustainability, using sustainable sources of food, recycled packaging, and eco-friendly furniture and equipment.
Location: 6090 S Rainbow Blvd #2, Las Vegas.
Tadashi Igarashi has 30 years of experience owning and operating restaurants, and his newest locale brings convenient and quick Japanese food through the new-fangled fusion item. Like at Jaburrito, you can create your own burritos, bowls, and bento boxes, with extras like seasoned shiitake, avocado, and cream cheese. The hot-ticket item right now is the Sashimi Oishi, made with ahi tuna, yellowtail, and salmon.
Yelp reviewers love this Southwest Las Vegas locale, with posters raving that it’s “so freaking good” and “one of the best sushi burrito joints I’ve been to.” If you love it enough to become a regular, a reward program through the FiveStars app lets you earn a point for every dollar you spend.
