A couple weeks ago I had lunch at Sushirrito in Palo Alto. This Bay Area exclusive restaurant fuses the ingredients of a sushi and the shape of a burrito, hence the name Sushirrito.

However, I’m allergic to seafood, so the choices are limited. Also, my friend noticed that the workers don’t change their gloves when handling one sushirrito from another. So if you’re deathly allergic to seafood then stay away like it’s a plague (of course, I’m assuming if you are deathly allergic you wouldn’t even be eating at any sushi restaurant, authentic or fusion).

Anyway, one of the non-seafood choices that stood out is the Mayan Dragon, which I solely chose because it contains potatoes. POH-TAY-TOE. Boil ’em. Mash ’em. Stick ’em in a stew… or in this case, in a sushiritto. The overall taste is delicious and spicy. The curry and chicken katsu complement each other. The vegetables taste fresh and you can taste each grain of rice.

Sushiritto has several branches in SF and one in Palo Alto. Learn more about Sushirrito at its website.

Talk about underrated artist. Brandon who goes by Biro or Birocratic is absolutely amazing and talented! If you’re a fan of Nujabes or jazzy hip-hop, definitely give Birocratic a listen. I stumbled upon his music, sombre, green whilst studying for my final, immediately fell in love, and headed over to Youtube to listen to his other albums. I cannot describe his music other than addicting, hypnotic, and totally eargasmic. So grateful to have come across quality music.

Here are a few of my favorite tracks

You can listen and support Birocratic by heading over to bandcamp and/or SoundCloud.
