Sushi is great. Burritos are great. But sushi burritos? The greatest. That's why NYC's Uma Temakeria plans to take its portable sushi game to the next level in this belt-busting combo, rendering all your puny chopsticks obsolete.
 
In honor of International Sushi Day this Thursday, June 18th, the Brazilian sushi spot will roll out sushi burritos at its Chelsea location and at its booth at the Penn Plates food market. While they're totally customizable with other ingredients, Uma Temakeria's "classic" sushi burrito consists of fresh salmon, tuna, spicy mayo, julienned carrots, cucumbers, and sushi rice seasoned by Chef Chris Jaeckle -- all wrapped into a burrito with a sheet of crisp nori. You're gonna need a cereal bowl of soy sauce to dip this bad boy...
