Sushi Burrito King
Ever since I have developed a love for sushi, I have noticed that you can never get enough of it. In other words, it doesn’t fill you up. Granted, I’m a full-grown American man who does realize that being full after every meal isn’t always good. But, every time I venture out for sushi, it just kind of leaves you hanging. That’s why there seems to be a frozen yogurt shop somewhere close by sushi restaurants, because they know you’re still going to be hungry after chowing down on three sushi rolls.
I thought my insatiable appetite for sushi would never be appeased, until I drove by this weird little drive-through stop called “Sushi Burrito King,” in Chico, CA. Thankfully I’m usually willing to try new things, drive-through sushi joints included, so I took my first steps into the strange new world of fast-food sushi.
My first reaction as I pulled into the drive-through was, “Wow, they weren’t kidding. These are actually burrito-sized sushi rolls!” I was there, I had to order something, and personally I just wanted to see if this potentially-amazing new food creation actually, physically existed.
“Hello?” squawked the drive-through box.
“Um, yes I’d like to order a Fried Soft Shell Crab Sushi Burrito please.”
“Anything to drink?”
“Uhhh, sure I’ll have a Peach Boba Tea too while you’re at it.”
“That’ll be $11.94 at the window please.”
“That’s it?” I thought as I pulled up to the window. “That’s either really awesome or really bad for sushi.”
I pulled around to the one sliding window, handed the cashier my dough and waited.
“Oh my dear Lord! I thought this was fast food!”
But then it hit me, they were actually making it from scratch. They were frying the crab, cutting the vegetables and sushi burrito ingredients, and actually hand rolling it into an edible masterpiece.
“This is good,” I thought. “They are taking their time on my burrito, putting tender love and care (and seaweed) into my food!”
It wasn’t like an ordinary drive-through, in that the food wasn’t pre-made, sitting there waiting for someone to buy it. This sushi was made to order.
When I finally received my sushi burrito, I took it home and fell in love. It was everything I wanted it to be and more: I was actually full!
They have reasonably healthy, filling food for a good price. If you’re not adventurous enough for a burrito-sized sushi roll, they have regular sushi rolls and combination boxes as well.
Trust your gut on this one, not your instincts. Try this revolutionary American-sushi phenomenon and you won’t be disappointed.
