Difficult to find parking. Super slow service. Food took 45 minutes to be served. Their best-selling Osaka Burrito was so dry I had to bathe it in sauce!

Before sumikat ang sushi burrito fusion, isa ang Nori sa mga nakita kong nag-offer ng gantong food. Makikita sya sa tapat ng Kanto Freestyle (kahit wala sa corner street). Maliit lang yung place, very japanese style. Ok yung interior, akala mo character ka na din sa Manga (japanese comics or prutas sa pinoy). Pasara na sya nung dumating kami, last customer na nga yata kami. And feeling ko yung may-ari na yung nagsserve samin.

Kilatisin na natin ang food.

Umami chicken sushi burrito - Medium lang yung inorder ko, pero grabe sa laki. Di ko ma-imagine gano kalaki yung large (baka paran isang roll ng cartolina sa haba). At first, ok yung lasa nya. Malalasahan mo bawat laman ng burrito, or sushi, or sushi burrito anuber! Nung nasa 2nd slice na ko, iniisip ko na syang itake out and ubos na din yung sauce ko. Pero dahil typical na pinoy, tinanong ko kung may bayad ba an extra sauce pero free daw yun. So ayun, kinain ko na din yung 2nd slice. Medjo umay na pagdating sa 2nd slice. Dun ko lang din napansin na konti lang pala yung laman na umami chicken. Parang ang dapat na nasa menu e "Vegetables sushi burrito with guest appearance of umami chicken". Pero sa price nya na 165 pesos, sulit na din. Yung medium sushi burrito parang good for 2 kung di kayo ganun kalakas kumain.

Must try ang sushi burrito. Pag balik ko, try ko ang bukkake nila. Haha.

So I realized that a giant sushi is actually a burrito!!

Head to Nori and please get the Miso glazed Salmon sushi burrito and ur first bite will give u the "umami". Oozing with flavor. The mango adds an extra oomphh and you'll find yourself devouring the rest of it like a zombie feeding on its first brain. Hahaha. Ok that zombie reference was just off, sorry.

The place is kinda small but cozy. Airconditioned downstairs, fans upstairs. The restroom doesnt have hand soap which I find weird... like it makes you wonder, "did someone drop it into the toilet?" Or something like that.

The waiter is nice he gave me an extra sauce when I looked like I could have some more. Yes, I didnt need to ask!

Lastly, CASH ONLY. Come prepared foodie friends!

I was so excited to come here for the vegan option, but not available. Ok, I'll make an exception for the Hot Seoul w/o pork belly. Chips and soup also not available. Bummer. Overall pretty good, but nothing really stands out about it. I'd eat it again, but wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Upon seeing the viral post on Facebook about a sushi burrito place in Kapitolyo, I told myself that I had to try this. I love sushi AND burrito so imagine my joy when I finally got to try Nori.

I went on a Friday night, around past 9. There weren't a lot of people. Ordered a medium Osaka Beef and Cheese with truffle rice (P220), while my bf got Umami Chicken (P160?) and Bukake Udon. My order was better than my boyfriend's LOL that always happens actually wahahaha the beef bits on my sushirrito were huge and soft. I didn't get to taste the "truffle" part though. It was so filling and heavy, I only ate half of it. For the Bukake Udon, tip lang, don't ask what Bukake is. 128581🏻128581🏻128581🏻128581🏻 I didn't like it that much.... the udon I mean. Lol. Medyo ordinary tasting lang and meh, should've sticked to the sushirrito nalang.

Overall, food was alright. Didn't go gaga over it.

I cannot reiterate enough how solid their sushirritos are. Best fusions yet!

We had the Osaka beef with cheese and truffle rice (P330) and the Miso glazed salmon (P285) both in Large. I think the Regular sized ones would have sufficed but we just really had to get the Large ones. The servings were humongous that I was getting full by the time i finished half of it.

The Osaka beef was superb! (As seen in picture) It had chunks of beef buried around the truffle rice. And the great thing about it was that they didn't skimp on the beef! The cheese was creamy and heavenly. It went so well with the beef plus some slaw. I highly recommend this to everyone coming out to eat here.

Miso glazed salmon was good too. Although it would have been more authentic to have it as poke, the cooked salmon was just as good. Basically anything sushi and salmon will turn out amazing.

Definitely coming back soon here. I will be craving for this for days!

Y'all ever heard of sushi's the size of burritos? Take a knee, guys. Or take a ride cause there's a baby resto in Kapitolyo waiting for you to try them out 128513

First things first, theyre located in pasig. (Landmark01: Ynares stadium, enter the village near the gas station, walk a little, when you find Crepeman, They'd be in sight.)

And also, last i went, the place is still in the soft opening stage. The place has potential, we'll get there. Good natured girl that iam, i kinda liked that interior looks "recycled". And for the love of peace and quiet, this place offers solace more than any other coffee shop ive been to. Home-y vibes, check.

For the menu, there's not much of a variety, which didnt bother me at all. I ordered a spicy sushirrito type. They all come with potato wedges on the side. Serving size? No need to ask, it was hella big I could share it with a friend. The taste is also super delish. My "sushirrito" is wrapped in nori, and had beef at the center of the roll. It's not a raw kind of giant thing, some have grilled chicken inside. Coupled with your dip, which you can choose, all in all you'd be rubbing your bellies, smiling all childlike afterwards.

For good food and great peace, come to this place. NORI 128588128588

Commercial: i first found out about sushirritos online. The only place u could get one at that time was NEW YORK. but my boyfie told me one day, "May alam kong sushirrito." But i heard and understood it as "May alam akong SUSHI dito." So i shrugged it off. 2 weeks after, i brought up again the extinctness of the fine hybrid, then he told me "sinabi ko na sayo dati may alam ako."....and then it dawned on me. Ahhhh. Oh. . So we hit the road ASAP, and didnt fail ourselves 128514128514

Like most people, we went here for the sushi burritos. We tried the umami chicken & osaka beef. Unfortunately, we found both disappointing. The serving size was good and the presentation was really nice but the flavor is just bland.

But we enjoyed the rest of the food we ordered. I don't like cold noodles but theirs was good - forgot which one was it but it's the must try. The kani salad was decent. Their house blend iced tea was good too - leans on the sweet side if you're curious. But the best food we tasted was their yakitoris - pork and beef. Really flavorful and nicely cooked. Too bad the rest of the yakitoris were not available but o bet they would have tasted good too.

I'll come back here for the yakitoris and cold noodles.

P.S.

Good service also!

Are you one of those people who just can't choose one? Pizza or burger? Coke or Pepsi? Apple or Android? Have you ever experienced craving for sushi AND Mexican at the same time??? Fear no more! We have the Sushi Burrito!

Nori is one of the new kids on the block of Kapitolyo in Pasig, located just across Kanto Freestyle Breakfast.

Interiors were simple, just a combination of black, white, and the their cool newspaper wallpaper! 128240 they had nice lighting and ample a/c. They also serve some beer if you want to enjoy your meals with some booze at the outdoor terrace are on the second floor.

We ordered the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Fries and the Chicken Teriyaki Sushi Burrito. Since this was just a pregame for an actual dinner we decided to just share.

The fries were a bit soggy, which I didn't like but I think that's supposed to be the idea of this appetizer.

Their sushi burritos are wrapped with beancurd instead of the usual tortilla. The first thing that I noticed was that they used high quality rice for their sushi which is good if they want their hybrid creation to not fall apart after that first bite. The chicken was flavorful, it had some veggies and beansprouts. Just thing that you ordered your chicken teriyaki bowl with veggies to go and you decided to mash it all together with a beancurd wrap.

Overall, I had a unique experience here. The staff were nice enough to keep our glasses full and they even asked for some comments and suggestions since they were still on soft opening when we visited. I just said that they should watch out for some wet ingredients that they mix in with their sushi burritos because it gets a little bit weird to chomp on a wet burrito. Plus, I told them to have a bottle of hand sanitizer at their common areas in handy since you're going to have to use your hands for eating here at Nori.

I think they've added new items on their menu so I should probably checkout their new offerings.

Adios! 128111

Interesting little place in front of the go-to Kanto Breakfast!

The graffiti got me.

Then the SUSHI BURRITOS did too. It's a nori or soy wrapped (you can choose) sushi roll that is as big as a burrito with flavors ranging from Korean, Mexican, but mostly Japanese. (Looloo, menu please!)

Also recommend the LAZY SUSHI which is simply a deconstructed sushi on a bowl - imagine rice toppings.

Menu is also Japanese inspired so you will find a lot of your Japanese cravings like wasabi, Japanese mayo, kani, yakitori, etc.

I would recommend Nori for the reason that i's a humble looking place that serves simple food that's enjoyable to eat. The innovation makes your normal sushi and rice toppings more fun and flavors are interesting too.

Throw in a beer at that and you're solved. 128077🏽

After several months, I am back, Kapitolyo! I read a couple of restaurant reviews on the new establishments in Kapitolyo, one of which is Nori. Since it has been getting a lot of buzz, I decided to invite my mom, sister and R to have lunch there last Sunday.

Hello, Nori!

Just like most Kapitolyo restaurants, parking is a challenge. Luckily, R and I were early and got the one and only parking of the restaurant. My mom came in a bit later and she parked a block away.

The menu is simple and you only have a handful of options to choose from which makes ordering easier for the fickle-minded. We ordered Bacon Crab Sticks (PHP39/stick), Chicken Yakitori (PHP39/stick), Mojos (PHP69), Chicken Teriyaki Burrito (PHP149), Beef Bulgogi Burrito (PHP169), Miso Glazed Salmon Burrito (PHP189), Angus Beef Teriyaki (PHP119) with one raw egg (PHP10). We also ordered house blend iced tea (PHP55).

First served were our drinks and mojos. The iced tea was sweet yet refreshing. It went well with the mojos which were thinly sliced and nicely spiced. I also enjoyed dipping the mojos with the Wasabi Mayo (which was not spicy at all).

Next served was my Miso Glazed Salmon Burrito. I liked the sweet sauce but I find it a bit off with the cabbage for some reason. The salmon was also a bit dry. And it was messy to eat. The fried potato chips on the side added a nice texture to the dish but it was slightly burnt having a bitter taste.

The yakitori sticks soon followed and the Bacon Crab Stick is literally crab sticks with bacon. It was okay though quite oily. The chicken yakitori was pretty ordinary too. Both were a bit salty so it might be good to eat it with rice.

My sister’s Chicken Teriyaki Burrito was equally hard to eat. Since it frustrated her, she decided to open the burrito and eat it with chopsticks. The chicken teriyaki was so-so. It’s your usual sweet chicken strips.

My mom’s beef bulgogi had a nice flavor but the beef was tough! It was hard to chew so she just ate half of the burrito. (And she was also on a diet anyway.)

R’s Angus Beef Teriyaki rice bowl looks inviting with raw egg on top. But he said that it was also nothing special.

The idea of mixing Japanese food with Mexican cuisine was interesting but it needs that oomph for us to visit again. (Perhaps when they added some desserts in the menu?)

Can't ig-nori-t.

Nori's sushi burritos are flavorful and filling even if they aren't actually wrapped in nori. The soft soy wrap was light and and definitely just right, and the roasted sesame rice complemented the meat and other ingredients inside.

Tried out the umami chicken, beef mexicano, and chicano salmon sushi burritos.

My favorite would have to be the beef mexicano. Quoting spot.ph, the beef mexicano "is a tangy mix of spicy marinated beef, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and a hint of mildly sweet cream cheese." In my book that just means it's heavenly and perfection.

The umami chicken and chicano salmon were also good.

Also ordered their kimchi aioli dip for the chips that went with every sushi burrito and it is now my favorite. I'd buy that dip if they sold it in jars lol.

Overall, sulit and filling, and i'll be back to try their other offerings.

Sushi + Burrito. 2 delicious cuisines fused into 1. When I saw this on my newsfeed I knew I had to sample their food.

Here's my asssment.

The good: Tasty combinations. Out of the several combinations, I sampled the recommended combos by the staff. These were:

1. Umami Chicken
2. Wasabi Tuna
3. Chicano Salmon
4. Beef Mexican

Out of the 4, the Beef Mexican was the best. The beef stood out and mixed well with Cream Cheese. I had issues with the others because of the following:

1. Taste - With the other 3 dishes, the taste was nothing outstanding. It was ok, but just ok. The protein was small and was over priced by bland favor of the rice.

2. Serving size - For 150+, we should get a bigger size. This was barely good for 1. You need to order 2 to get a decent fill.

In addition:

3. Location - If your familiar with Kapitolyo 1st st, parking is an issue. Only 1 slot can park allocated in front of the resto. Kanto is right across.

Some recommendations are:

1. Add flavor / variants to the rice to make it more savory.
2. Serving size deserves to be bigger for a 150+ peso price tag.
3. Add more mexican sides like guacamole, salsa, and hot sauce to spice up the dishes.

I know the place is on soft opening. Hoping the feedback can further elevate this brilliant concept.

Kudos to the staff which was friendly and offered alcogel after using the bathroom on the 2nd floor.r
