Fans of the original sushi burrito can now find them at the new Jogasaki Sushi Burrito , swaddled in orange and paying tribute to its food truck heritage in the southwest at Buffalo Drive and Warm Springs Road.
Jogasaki got its start on the streets on Los Angeles, introducing the city to its burrito made with a soy paper and stuffed with sushi fillings, all meant to travel, back in 2010. Mix that with the cheeky samurai-sombrero’d logo, and a tasty hit was born. Las Vegans got their first taste of the Mexican-Japanese hybrid during the Great American Foodie Festival, a rollicking lineup of food trucks showing off their novelty dishes.
Now with a bricks-and-mortar location, Jogasaki brings sushi burritos such as the shrimp fiesta with surimi and shrimp tempura, the baby lobster with steamed langoustine, the popcorn baby lobster with a battered version of langoustine, and salmon ceviche. Vegetarian options also make the menu, along with kid’s dishes. Spicy tuna nachos and salmon ceviche tacos to go along with those walking dishes.
Jogasaki joins Fist of Fusion Island Grill with its Filipino and Hawaiian dishes., The Goodwich with its sandwiches, and FukuBurger with its Japanese burgers worthy of a spot on the Eater 38.
