Instant Reaction: Wrap N' Roll Sushi Burrito

Wrap N' Roll Sushi Burrito opened its second location a few weeks back, replacing Trey B Cakes at 1801 L street.

I stopped by on their opening weekend to give their unique concept a try.

When I walked in, I had prepared myself mentally to not like the place. The idea of putting tuna and salmon inside a tortilla didn't seem like something I'd like.

Luckily, I was wrong. I was wrong on the concept and I had a surprisingly decent meal.

First of all, nothing we ordered had a tortilla. It's more about giant sushi rolls rather than pairing carnitas with wakame.

I ate there with three friends, and this is what we ordered.

Dining News: RIP Squeeze Inn West Sac

Logo6[1]

Squeeze Inn's West Sac location has closed.

I called the phone number on Tuesday evening, and the phone number had already been disconnected. I then called Oscar's Very Mexican Food, whose West Sac location shares a building with Squeeze Inn, and the woman who picked up told me that Squeeze Inn closed a week ago.

The West Sac location has also been removed from the Squeeze Inn's Web site, although no explanation has been given via social media.

The West Sac location first opened in May 2011 and shares an owner with the local chain's Yuba City location.

H/T to Ms. Munchie for the tip.

Try It: Ruhstaller 1881 California Red Ale - A few days later I pulled the beer out of the refrigerator, took a few gulps, and quickly wished I had bought more than just one. Described by the brewery as “a true California Red Ale with all ingredients hailing from the Golden State,” this hoppy, crisp beer offers a mouthful of rich, layered flavor with lovely floral nuances.

Dining News: Wrap N' Roll Sushi Burrito Opens on Tuesday

20140329_163427945_iOS

Wrap N' Roll Sushi Burrito, a Mexican-Japanese fast casual fusion restaurant, is scheduled to open on Tuesday, replacing Trey B Cakes at 1801 L Street.

Their menu features what they call sushi burritos. Instead of a tortilla, they use seaweed, and fill it burrito style with a mix of Japanese and Mexican ingredients. For example, their Sashimi Burrito features guacamole, jalapenos, tempura shrimp and habanera sauce as some of its ingredients.

Here's a picture of a "sushi burrito"from their Facebook page.

They haven't posted their Midtown menu yet, but here's the menu for their original Elk Grove location.

I stopped by the midtown location on Saturday morning, and a quick peek (while I was standing outside in the rain, so it really was a quick peek) through the window shows that they basically have the same menu, with the prices increasing less than a dollar, presumably to account for the higher real estate costs.

Wrap N' Roll Sushi Burrito is located at 1801 L Street, and can be found online at http://www.wrapnrollsushiburrito.com/.

For those who don’t know, hot pot is stew or soup simmering in the middle of the table with a variety of thinly sliced meat, seafood, leaf vegetables, wontons and egg dumplings. Fatty Cow is “looking to serve the younger and more hip crowd,” according to the owners. The interior of the building will be getting a big facelift, too. Greg Brown in Valley Community News.
