Eat this Now: Temakitto Burritos

Sometimes a hand roll or a couple of cut rolls just aren’t enough to sate the appetite when you’re really really hungry and craving sushi. We found a great solution to that #firstworldproblem on Newhall Ranch Road: Temakitto.

Billed as the first Japanese Burrito restaurant in Southern California, Temakitto merges Japanese and Mexican flavors for tasty and varied “burrito” offerings. Instead of corn or flour tortillas, customers’ burritos are wrapped in seaweed or in soy paper (for a little extra).

Crunchy Tiger ($10.95) is one of the fast-casual restaurant’s more popular options: spicy tuna, crab mayo, shrimp tempura, red cabbage, guacamole, pickled cucumber, pickled radish and carrot, and rice crunch with a sweet/spicy aioli.

For those who don’t like raw fish, we can also recommend the Excelente Salmon  ($10.95) which features baked fresh salmon, tempura asparagus, lettuce, pickled cucumber, mango pico de gallo, rice crunch and pepitas. We especially like the latter burrito wrapped in soy paper (add $1).

Landlubbers don’t worry—Temakitto’s menu also includes beef, chicken and veggie options, too. Save room for desert because there’s also macaroon ice cream sandwiches.
