Trendy Sushi Burrito, Sushi Pizza, Corn Dog And Doughnut Joint Reportedly Eyeing Spot In Detroit

Are we ready for this West Coast trend?

October 16, 2018 - 12:49 pm

(WWJ) Popular food blog Eater Detroit reports today that Instagram phenomenon Poke Burri is scouting a new location in Detroit.

It would bring its trademark sushi burritos, poke bowls and even sushi pizza, doughnuts and corn dogs to the new location. A representative for Poke Burri confirmed to Eater that it is seeking space to open a restaurant inside the city of Detroit.

That begs the question: Is Detroit ready for this much trendy?

Apparently so. Social media lit up with the news.

Per Eater Detroit, Poke Burri's menu is replete with overstuffed sushi burritos and poke bowls. "But the restaurants have also gained a following for sushi pizzas — a triangular-shaped piece of nori topped with the sort of fixings typical of a regular sushi roll such as fish, cucumbers, scallions, and spicy mayo. Also available are handheld sushi donuts made with O-shaped rice, rather than fried dough) as well as sushi corndogs and savory bits of poke stuffed into hollowed out pineapple. For dessert, the chain has also been known to offer Filipino-style ube ice cream sandwiches."

Eater adds the chain got its sett to open its second location in Atlanta, where the chain got its start as a food truck. The company is also eyeing Boston, Denver, and Tampa for expansion. 

Wonder what a sushi doughnut looks like? Wonder no more.

Are these Poke donuts brilliant or is it just me???
