It makes sense if you think about it. A sushi roll is basically just a bunch of ingredients stuffed inside something, which really is no different than a burrito, right?
If you’re on board with this logic – or even if you’re skeptical – you’ll have an easy time finding a place to try a sushi burrito for yourself in Las Vegas. The fusion trend was introduced to Las Vegas by Soho Sushi Burritos several years ago, and it wasn’t long before the city’s cautious curiosity turned into a non-stop craving for raw fish, rice and tortillas.
As of this writing, there are over 15 places to order sushi burritos in Las Vegas. Here are some of your best options:
Jaburritos scores major points for really committing to the fusion concept. Both locations serve items that pair sushi ingredients like ahi tuna, salmon and shrimp tempura with Mexican ingredients like pico de gallo, guacamole and roasted corn and beans. Definitely try the restaurant’s Instagram-worthy sushi cupcakes (rice topped with spicy tuna and other ingredients in the shape of a cupcake), and go for some queso, too.
Tail & Fin
Helmed by an executive chef from Nobu, Tail & Fin is a stylish, slightly upscale take on the casual sushi burrito trend. Yes, you’re probably going to want to order a poke bowl served inside a hollowed-out pineapple, but don’t sleep on the sushi tacos and burritos either.
Soho Sushi Burrito
For those who have been around Vegas for a few years, Soho Sushi Burrito will always be fondly known as a pioneering force in bringing the concept to the city. Pay your respect by visiting one of three locations. Order the Cheesy Asada burrito, which is stuffed with steak, corn, guacamole and the Japanese addition of eel sauce, or get the Angry Tuna, which includes ahi tuna, masago, crispy wontons and jalapeño. As an added bonus, Soho Sushi Burrito also offers a nice selection of vegan and vegetarian options.
Jogasaki Sushi Burrito
Longtime sushi chef Yo Pratioto is credited with creating the sushi burrito. He’s also the owner of Jogasaki Sushi Burrito, which started in Los Angeles and came to Las Vegas in 2018. Experience the magic on the southwest side of Las Vegas, where you can order curated sushi burritos, sushi tacos and sushi nachos. If you’re really hungry, get the Jogazilla, a massive sushi burrito stuffed with spicy tuna, yellowtail, salmon, shrimp tempura, avocado, cucumber, asparagus and crab.
Hawaiian visitors will love Suha Bites, which serves sushi burritos and Hawaiian barbecue plus poke bowls. Build your own sushi burrito or bowl and choose from ingredients like spicy crab, fried tofu, Spam and barbecue beef or go for a signature option like the Chunnie, which pairs salmon, masago, bacon and unagi sauce for a savory blend of texture and flavor.
Come for the delightful pun of a name, stay for the delicious sushi burritos. Pokeman is a Chinatown sushi burrito spot that serves Hawaiian-influenced sushi burritos with ingredients like pineapple and Spam. You can also order poke bowls, miso soup and teriyaki chicken.
