All-New Sushi Restaurant On Montreal's Saint-Laurent Street Sells A "Sushi Burrito"

Photo cred - Sayuri Boutique

Sushi is an amazing anytime-meal that has only one fatal flaw: a lack of mobility. You can't really eat a set of six rolls on the go while walking down the street, or even on the metro. Your soya sauce would go everywhere. What the world needs is a more portable form of sushi, but how? Montreal's newest sushi shop, Sayuri Sushi Boutique on The Main, has the answer: the sushi burrito.

Sayuri Sushi Boutique just started doling out the rolls and sashimi this Wednesday on 3652 St. Laurent (map), and while all of their sushi-offerings look damn fine, we're most jazzed about this Japanese-Mexican hybrid of a dish. I mean, who doesn't like a solid burrito?

More of a beefed up hand roll than anything actually Mexican, the sushi burrito doesn't mix cheese, guac, and salsa with raw fish, thankfully. A seaweed wrapper acts as the tortilla, with a variety of sushi-stuffings on the inside, with the whole thing paired with a special sauce, because even in burrito form, sushi needs to be dipped. Sayuri's sushi burrito comes in 5 different flavours, check 'em below.

  • Sumo: Shrimp tempura, crabstick, red cabbage, coconut, cucumber, avocado, tempura w/spicy mayo
  • Silky Smooth: Oven baked maple miso glazed Salmon, namasu cucumber, lettuce, asparagus, avocado, tempura, sesame w/wasabi mayo
  • Sunrise: Salmon, cucumber, green onions, red cabbage, namasu red radish, tempura, sesame, red tobiko w/spicy mayo
  • Yummy Belly: Tuna, cucumber, red cabbage, namasu red onion, green onions, masago, tempura w/spicy mayo
  • Buddha Buddha: Spicy Japanese eggplant, Portobello mushroom, tofu, carrot, avocado, kale, lettuce w/ roasted garlic tofu mayo
