Wrap your mitts around this Japanese-Mexican hybrid My Sushi Burrito in Nobby Beach

We're all for unexpected pairings – like that time The Beastie Boys and Madonna went on tour together, chilli margaritas and dessert pizzas, which probably explains why we are so excited for this tasty newcomer to the beachside strip at Nobby Beach. If you too have a taste for the unexpected, say hello to My Sushi Burrito – the pop-up shares a kitchen with Hachi Japanese Restaurant and is slinging handheld rolls of happiness in curious combos such as crab, salmon, tuna, lettuce, cucumber and avocado rolled in crushed-up Cheetos (yes, the chip kind) and smothered in sriracha aioli. It's sushi, but not as you know it.


After working as a sushi chef in Tokyo and here on the Gold Coast for over a decade, Ken Takeuchi and his wife Nobu were feeling a bit bored of the Nigiri-style sushi we love so much here in Australia. Craving a little culinary creativity, Ken knew it was time to branch out and do his own thing. After thinking about the kinds of food he likes to eat and cook, he knew exactly what that thing would be – a beautiful Mexican-Japanese hybrid he lovingly refers to as a sushi burrito. As its name suggests, it’s an oversized sushi roll loaded with flavours and fillings that are traditionally found in burritos – think spiced-beef rib, cherry tomato, black beans, coriander, corn, green oak, cheddar cheese and smothered in sauce (that’s the Mexican Beef one, in case you were wondering). Seafood lovers are spoilt for choice but it’s hard to go past the house-special Seafood Trick red-sushi burrito (it’s crushed up Cheetos that makes it red, true story!) and if you can handle the heat, bite into an Asian spicy-tuna burrito loaded with tuna, cucumber, avocado, sesame, tempura flake, black rice and spicy sauce. Not feeling those? You can build your own by first selecting your base, then your protein, veggies, toppings and sauces – easy and delicious!

My Sushi Burrito shares a space with Hachi in Mermaid Beach and is open for lunch on Monday through to Saturday. The rolls are all handmade by Ken using fresh ingredients – they’re healthy, too! While you’re waiting, pinch your chopsticks around a serve of freshly sliced sashimi or chicken karaage loaded with Japanese mayo (yum!) and you my friend, have yourself a fine midday feast. Available to dine-in or takeaway. My Sushi Burrito also does catering as a little side hustle so if you have an event coming up, an office Christmas party for example, Ken can sort your out with bulk sashimi and a burrito platter.
