The Sushi Burrito craze can’t be missed. And with tons of new recipes, restaurants and foodstagrams it’s clear that this craze isn’t going away any time soon. Buredo is a DC based sushi burrito restaurant with two locations: the original is near McPherson Square and their newest location is near Dupont Circle.
While I had heard that the sushi burrito would change my life, I never had the chance to try it. Until a couple of weeks ago, that is. The Dupont location opened and all my Sushi Burrito dreams came true.
I tried to come on opening day of the new store (to score a free burrito), but it was not meant to be. The line was way too long for my lunch break. But a week later, my friend and I got in.
The interior of Buredo is quite small, with one long table in the middle, a small bar top by the windows and the sushi burrito making in the back. There is also art that is featured from local artists.
After much hemming and hawing, I decided to get the Sofie burrito (shrimp tempura, avocado, pickled cabbage, carrot, toasted sesame seeds, red tobiko and sriracha mayo).
I loved the Sofie. It was crunchy from the tempura, fresh from the carrots and avocado and a little spicy from the sriracha mayo. While I want to try the other burritos, this one is going to be tough to top.
Final verdict? Amazing. I can see why people are so obsessed with them. This former sushi burrito virgin is now a true believer.
