The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Good not great.
Definitely doesn’t measure up to Sushirrito, won’t be going back.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
I was excited to try Kome since I’m in love with Sushirrito and the idea is the same. The truck serves sushi burritos and burrito bowls. Their menu is much more customizable, giving you the option to choose your protein and sauce.
Check their website for hours and locations.
What I ate:
- Crunch burrito ($10.50)
Everything about this burrito was inferior to Sushirrito:
- For starters people seemed to be excited about the “bigger” and “cheaper” selling points. However, while the burrito may have been a bit longer, it was also skinnier so I think it all evens out.
- About the price… this burrito without any additional protein added to it is already $10.50 and all add-ons cost $3-5 so I wouldn’t say it’s cheaper. Also, their special burritos cost $15 and $16 dollars!
- While I like soy paper, it didn’t add anything to this burrito, in fact, it’s too thin and rips in various places making this extremely messy to eat.
- I felt the carrots weren’t necessary, the flavor didn’t go with the rest of the ingredients and it didn’t seem to add anything.
- It was very filling, but overly so. I didn’t add any extra protein and I felt almost sick after eating it.
- Lastly, but most importantly the taste just wasn’t the same. It didn’t taste like it was put together well and the flavor didn’t wow me in the same way.
I did appreciate how crunchy the shrimp tempura was, this may be the one area where I liked their version better. However, as a whole I wasn’t impressed and I won’t be coming back.
