Soho SushiBurrito

My name is Kellee and I am a fusion addict. The latest craze seems to be sushirritos. Understandable, right? I mean, what's not to love when Mexican and Japanese worlds collide? Thankfully, Soho SushiBurrito has delivered this delight to the people of Las Vegas. Located near David's Bridal across from Palace Station on Sahara Avenue, you might expect this place to be a hidden gem, but word is definitely out. There is always a line. Fortunately, the ordering process similar to Chipotle is an easy concept and the crew plows through orders quickly. The space is small so you're in tight quarters and if you find a seat consider yourself lucky. Timing is everything.

Soho SushiBurrito is a sister restaurant to the famed Soho Japanese Restaurant. Chef John Chien Lee mastered his skills all over the Vegas strip, mostly notably at Social House before going out on his own. He has proven to be successful and I feel it's only the beginning. There is definite demand for this style of fast casual food.

The menu offers salads, bowls, nachos and burritos. You can choose from proven combinations or create your own. Therefore, it's possible to accommodate most dietary needs. I have a major weakness for yellowtail, so it was easy to narrow down my choice to the High Maintenance Burrito with Nori wrap ($8.50). This is loaded with yellowtail, spicy tuna, masago, guacamole, cabbage and cilantro sauce. My brother hasn't dabbled with sushi so he opted for the less adventurous Sante Fe Burrito with the Soy wrap ($6.25). That one has chicken breast, onion, corn, jalapeno and cheddar cheese sauce with mango soy. We made both a combo to include drink and a side. Don't be shy definitely go with the Taro Chips and Cheese! The chips are mighty delicious with furikake seasoning. All in all, this lunch hit the spot. It's perfect when you're craving something out of the ordinary.
