Rolltation – 2291 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4P 2C6
Sushi burritos. I don’t get it. Isn’t it just a massive sushi roll? Why is this even a thing?
I was in the Yonge & Eglinton area and was curious about why sushi burritos is now so insanely popular, so I decided to check out Rolltation. Went in around lunch time and they had a line out the door! Wow!
Their menu is easy to navigate as it is broken up into signature burritos/poke or you can create your own in 6 simple steps. 1. Choose your base – burrito, poke or salad; 2. Choose your protein; 3. Choose your veggies; 4. Choose your sauces; 5. Choose your toppings; 6. Choose your crunch. No one is going to tell me what to put in my sushi burrito!!…so I decided to create my own. There were tons of veggies, toppings and sauce for you to choose from, which was pretty neat. I had one with salmon, corn, kale and a whole bunch of other toppings.
As I bit into it, I still couldn’t wrap my head around the concept. Is it a salad wrapped in seaweed and rice? Or is it a massive sushi roll? I can’t decide. The sushi burrito itself was tasty and flavourful but it’s not something I will get again. Nothing against Rolltation, but I just don’t get the concept.
Service was quick, as they had tons of employees working and it was basically an assembly line.
tl;dr: good food, don’t get the concept, good service
