First Jaburritos introduced Las Vegas to the sushi burrito. Now the restaurant with two locations debuts its latest concoction, sushi cupcakes, in three flavors.

All three come on a bed of rice nestled inside a baked wonton, which creates the cupcake shape. Sushi cupcake flavors include spicy surimi crab with guacamole and cream cheese, garnished with togarashi; spicy tuna with spicy mayo and eel sauce, garnished with cucumber and crispy garlic; and smoked salmon with red onion, dill and cream cheese, garnished with dill and masago.

Customers can nab these three flavors in a box that contains four cupcakes — two spicy tuna, one smoked salmon and one spicy surimi crab — for $12.

Jaburritos also features salads, rice bowls, nachos and juices made to order. Sushi burritos come wrapped in options such as seaweed paper or a tortilla, Jachos, built over corn or taro chips, or a Jabowl, featuring salad or rice. Individual proteins include spicy tuna, grilled steak, tofu, salmon and soft shell crab, or diners can opt for the "chef creations" combinations.
