Sushiritto – SoMa & Financial District
has been a busy place ever since it opened. This is partly due to the restaurant’s small size and short open hours. However, it’s mostly, because of the great food! It’s so small that they’ve usually got a line winding outside of their small establishment onto the sidewalk. They’re only open Mon-Fri 11AM – 3PM! I’d usually rather go out for dinner rather than lunch, but Sushiritto gave me no choice.
I got to Sushiritto a little after noon. I had no idea what to get, so I decided I would simply order whatever the person in front of me was ordering.
It was a little hectic in there to say the least. I suppose it was everyone’s lunch hour at the time, but Sushirrito did a good job at keeping the line moving in a somewhat orderly fashion. When I was finally able to see their menu, I considered ordering the Salmon Samba. But, I decided to keep my word and just order whatever the guy in front of me was ordering.
The guy in front of me ended up ordering the Porkivore, which didn’t even seem to have any fish in it. I love me some good roasted pork, so I didn’t mind this fellow’s order. I got my food about 5 minutes after I had ordered and I took it outside since there really isn’t any in-house seating available. It was a beautiful day and the burrito itself was just as full of beauty.
The Porkivore was pretty damn greasy though. The tasty kind of greasy, probably some sort of oil, but I couldn’t put my finger on what type. The burrito could have benefited with a bit more cilantro, but then again.. I like an oddly large amount of cilantro on my foods.
Soon after I finished with my burrito, I was back at work and I told my coworkers of my experience. It appears that another one of my coworkers had been to Sushiritto and ended up ordering the chicken roll at one point (not pictured on the menu above). He said the chicken roll had also been pretty greasy…
I’m determined to go back and visit Sushiritto again. Judging by the way my last burrito went, it will certainly be delicious. But, I have to order another roll with fish in it to find out if it’s just as oily as the meat. I’ll update this post next time I visit!
I made it back to Sushirrito two days ago and was finally able to try out the Salmon Samba. It turns out that the Salmon Samba was indeed oily, but not nearly as oily as the Porkivore had been. Maybe the oil is to make sure that the roll isn’t dry, but I feel like it’s a tad unnecessary.
I definitely preferred the salmon to the pork roll. I would like to go back and try their other items on the menu. Sushirrito is probably not something you should be eating everyday, but for a quick lunch it’s a good bet and a delicious one at that. This is what makes the establishment so successful with the white collared crowd on their lunch breaks in SOMA. If you have’t already, go check out Sushirrito for yourself!
