We see contrasting food all the time, chicken and waffles, milkshakes and fries, but a new place in Benson has made a sushi into a burrito. Well we as Craze have found the best combination, Burrito Envy! You are most likely wondering what the hell a sushi burrito is and if you think that sounds disgusting, hear me out. A common misconception is that it’s a regular bean and cheese burrito with sushi stuffed inside, but that’s where you’re wrong. Sushi Burritos are sushi that isn’t in little pieces but still in giant roll form, hence the term “burrito”. You can get this in many different types of sushi, customizable to your taste buds.
Their menu prices range from anywhere between four dollars for chips and salsa, to the top price of a whopping fifteen dollars for thirty two ounces of fresh guacamole. The burritos are typically about eight to ten dollars, we tried the salmon burrito [shown on the left] and spent around ten dollars. This fun menu also features other beauties such as specialty burritos full of mango, kimchi, or tater tots. As weird as it may sound, don’t knock it till you try it!
Sushi burritos aren’t the only thing they have to offer, you can get a burrito, taco, burrito bowl, or nachos of just about anything on the menu. With different sections of food including: “envy style” (spicy sauce), specialty (such as PBJ, Caribbean and of course, sushi), and extras you are sure to find something to satisfy your hunger.
“We have a sushi mat where we lay down the seaweed wrap, we add some sticky rice and flatten it. We then cut cream cheese, sushi mix, and avocado and lay it on top. After that we can then add the fish and drizzle it with fajita sauce. Finally, if you order it spicy we use siracha and then last we roll.” -Bryan Baumgart (Courtesy of Bryan’s Youtube).Bring in your parents so they can try their infused tequila bar, and don’t forget to grab some delicious sea salt caramel cinnamon chips to top it all off. You can devour your beloved meal inside the restaurant, where you can see the unique hip vibe of Benson, or you can eat it in the comfort of your own home by ordering it straight to your doorstep with the convenient service of Grubhub and Fast Guys Delivery. You never know what’s outside your comfort zone until you try it, so give Burrito Envy a try!
